I love the Sport Cupkit on my car. The stock suspension on the MkV GTI is really high, yet it still rides pretty stiffly. The Cupkit rides stiffer, no doubt, but I can t believe it s not worse considering it s almost 2" lower. It takes corners better and launches with less wheelhop at the track. It is stiff in the winter just because the roads aren t the best, but overall, I m very happy with my decision. Perhaps the thing I dislike the most is I have a lot of forward rake. The drop claims 2.2" in the front and 1.6" in the rear. I wish it was less of a gap, like 2.2" F 1.8" or 1.9" rear.
I ve ordered the H&R 24mm rear swaybar, so we ll see how that adds up with the cupkit.
