I just posted it in a wrong UK VW Forum, but maybe it is more interesting here.
Two weeks ago Bilstein Germany delivered the first 2nd type of B14 coiloverkits : the B14 XL LOW with a lower TÜV approved adjustment range ( 20mm lower as the standard B14)  and  a better (more comfortable) setup as the standard B14 which was originally develloped for standard wheel sizes. Thenew B14 XL LOW has a softer sensitivity which is perfect for 19" and even 20" wheels.
For GTi / GTD ( 55mm front and multilink rearaxle) the part no is 47-280922

Having had mk1 and mk2 Golf GTIs plus an old SEAT Ibiza GTI Cupra many years ago with Bilstein suspension the word “comfort” would never have been used without “massive dis-“ added to the front!  :grin:
It’s good to hear that times have changed.

Those GTDs are indeed LOW!

Although I'm likely to be in the minority with this but those cars look far too low. I'll just go and grab my pipe and slippers..... :whistle:
