The VWR StreetSport Coilover Suspension Kit is the highest quality, non-adjustable ride-height performance sports suspension system for fast road use. Taking all the development know-how from our race engineers, our StreetSport Coilover suspension kits suit the enthusiastic road and occasional track driver who wants a beautifully taut, controlled ride that feels like the best thoroughbred German sportscars.
The StreetSport Coilover set up allows full adjustment of ride-height from subtly lowered right down to ground-scraping show cars. With our carefully developed fixed rate of damping, this is then a 'fit and forget' suspension kit for owners who prefer to get on with their driving, confident in the knowledge that the spring/damper ratio is already perfected.
Taking all of our knowledge and experience of motorsport and high-performance dampers and suspension set-up, the StreetSport suspension system genuinely offers the sort of quality, detailing and refinement that few other 'aftermarket' suspension products can offer.
Bringing together all of our motorsport suspension expertise gives a high quality, fast-road orientated spring and damper kit employing sophisticated valving inside the dampers for optimum wheel-control.
The shock absorber and spring are supplied assembled as a unit, allowing us to precisely match the damping to the specified spring rate.
Full adjustment of ride height, using a simple threaded spring perch on the threaded body of the damper whilst keeping the same spring length wherever you set it to preserve ride and wheel-travel.
Only the highest quality materials and construction are used, bringing together all of our experience in motorsport construction, materials and development.
Developed exclusively for Volkswagen Group cars – rather than a generic design that so many aftermarket coilover suspensions follow.
Our extensive development programme on these advanced dampers and matched spring rates on each version of each model gives the StreetSport kit a taught ride quality that's just as good or even better than the standard car.
/// The VWR StreetSport Coilover suspension system differs from the StreetSport PLUS Coilover suspension system in that it has non-adjustable damping rates.
/// As a non-damping-adjustable suspension kit, this is a 'fit and forget' suspension kit that doesn't require constant adjustment - suiting the customer who wants to get on with enjoying their car's ride and handling in the knowledge that suspension is already at its optimum settings.
/// Through extensive testing of spring and damping rates, our engineers have established what we consider to be the ideal settings for enthusiastic driving with perfectly matched spring and damper rates to transform your car’s handling.
/// The VWR StreetSport kit is aimed at fast road use, yet has been developed carefully to ensure that the comfort is not sacrificed - in fact, it is the beautiful, taut ride quality that most customers are most impressed by when they try the StreetSport Kit.
/// The StreetSport kit is made from strong, durable stainless steel, powder-coated in satin black for durability, using a 22mm shaft and anodised aluminium spring seats.
/// Many experts consider suspension development to be as much an art as a science. In truth, it's a bit of both. What is certain is that an 'off the shelf' coilover damper and spring set that some companies offer is not going to be optimised for any particular car. Put simply, the VWR StreetSport kit is.
/// The kit replaces the entire standard front and rear dampers and springs with high quality, motorsport-derived units with much more sophisticated valving inside the dampers for significantly better levels of wheel control than any mass-produced damper offers.
/// How do we achieve this? All of our testing is done using high-cost multi-way adjustable dampers and multiple spring combinations (including lengths, rates and winding design). Only once we have finished our set up do we then 'lock' our settings. The profiles of these development dampers are then fully measured on our damper dyno, and the results replicated exactly into the valving of the StreetSport dampers.
/// As you can appreciate from all of this development work, it's certainly not down to luck that the StreetSport kit allows such a comfortable daily driving experience on the road yet still offers excellent control when driven hard and over the bumps.
/// Each kit is made to the very highest of standards, produced alongside our full motorsport-specification suspension kits.
/// This kit is compatible with cars fitted with Volkswagen Group's switchable ACC suspension – although it's important to be clear that the dampers loose the switchability of the standard dampers, and an additional electronic box is required from us at extra cost to avoid fault codes in the car.
/// Versions of the StreetSport suspension kits are only available for cars with the independent rear suspension, not for twist-beam. Compatible with front and four-wheel drive chassis.
During our exhaustive development
of the VWR StreetSport and StreetSport PLUS Coilover Suspension kits., our
engineers benchmarked the new suspension on a Scirocco R development car against a
couple of the industry’s best resolved suspension set ups on road and track – a
Porsche 911 and our KTM X-Bow R.
It was always going to be a tough challenge to equal and better these set ups. We weren’t even certain it would be possible – but we are thrilled with the end result. But don’t just take our word for it – try it for yourself.
