I recommend emailing or calling Austin about warranty issues with your products.

I'm not overly concerned about my set anymore. V-Maxx has had plenty of time to correct this and has chosen to make this a back-burner issue, and that's all I've needed to see in regards to the company as a whole. Between marketing Mk2 coil overs as a fit to the Mk3, marketing Mk3 diesel springs for the Ti-VCT, and then not fixing either fitment issues in a timely manner, I've seen all I need to see with this company and their products and customer/product-issue resolution.

Well said. I was really hoping they would resolve the issue and release a updated coilover. Sportlines are the way to go on the cheap but if you factor in a nice set of springs you start approaching the cost for a set of these Vmaxx coilovers. Fortunately, I've got a couple more years or 20,000 miles to wait. I get the same feeling about these as I do with the injected exhaust, intake, header. If they're not going to build it, or it's going on the back burner, at least come on the forum and say something. You've got members watching these threads for months with money in their hands when ultimately they could be forced to purchase a different product 6 months later due to a non release/update. Let's not forget the whole SCT debacle either.

I've emailed them 3 times and they have not responded to me once. My coils started riding pretty rough and squeaking now. Definitely one of the worst companies I've dealt with. I will definitely never buy another product from them. I should have just gone with the Raceland MS3 coilover route and saved an extra couple hundred bucks. Well fingers crossed that they get back to me this time.

This low.



I'm at roughly 23.5-23.75", but I have 18" wheels with under-sized tires and haven't had to modify the pinch-weld yet. I've seen a couple of Mk3's lower than mine, but they were running 17's.

I definitely don't recommend the V-Maxx as you're going to have to modify them for fitment to start with, let alone getting much lower than Sportlines (for 4x the cost). There were claims that there would be fixes available the 1st of the year and that there would be an actual Mk3 set, but neither have come to fruition. My rears have frozen in under a years' time and they all-around look like hell-and I don't even have 'winter' to deal with.

On the plus side, they ride rather well when it's warm (if you're not on bump-stops).

We have one last set of this model, but as Dyn said, fitment is not accurate... they are redesigning for the MK3. We researched and figured out the fix for the rear adj issue, but V-Maxx didnt want to foot the bill.
