No worries Joel! Glad to hear that you got them in OK, but sorry to hear that it involved heavy modding. I keep hoping V-Maxx will say something about a fix or replacement.

So, I couldn't respond, but did you pre-load the suspension?

It sucks more for the guys that have already purchased them (sounds like you'll get taken care of eventually). Not a game changer for someone like me as I can pick up the eibach sportlines for a third of the price and achieve nearly the same ride height. The mk3 is used by many as a daily driver so I don't think most are interested getting involved in heavy fabrication or r&d work to achieve the "slammed" look. That's just my standpoint on it right now. I'd love to have the coils as their performance/versatility improvements are well known but sadly I'm a broke bastard and may have to settle on cheap lowering springs.

Hey guys,
This afternoon we had a meeting with Austin (V-Maxx USA) and Erwin (V-Maxx HQ Netherlands) here are RDC to discuss and go over the current issues with the MKII (Euro)/ MKIII (US) Kit. As you already know the kit we are currently selling was initially designed for the European MKII Focus, which even though it fits (with mods) the MKIII Focus, it doesn't fit correctly, namely the adjustment issues. We had components in the shop from both vehicles, along with our Sedan, to view the differences and to discuss a fix for their current kit and what to change for the upcoming kits for the Focus. We should have the fix for the rear adjustment issue very soon (within the first 2 weeks of Sept.). The update will be given to the current owners and applied to the remaining in stock kits. They are also completely redesigning the kit to make it MKIII specific, said the new kits should be available by years end. The Xxtreme Coil-overs are also in the works (no time frame yet) and Big Brake kits, 4 piston calipers, 330MM grooved 2-Piece floating Rotors, and Ferodo Racing brake pads inc. (Erwin said end of Oct. time frame for ready to ship). If you have any more questions, please let me know or Contact
