Anyone seen any pictures yet of a lowered Eos? I'm thinking there may not be too many parts out for them yet even though they are similar to the Passat. I'm guessing the underpinnings are close to the same but beefier for the added weight.

All you need is a set of aftermarket spring/strut assemblies. I can say I don't like the lowered look in this case but have seen other lowered Eos that aftually look pretty nice. My main concern is lowering the car makes it more susceptible to damaging the underside of the nose of the car on bumps and curbs or going from an angled to a flat surface such as parking lot ramps or inclined driveways.

Plus it makes for a bit of a bumpy ride...

I have my Eos lowered 15mm and it's not the same as this eos on the picture.
This one is lowered much more than 15mm:eek:

It more than likely has an aftermarket spring kit to lower the car beyond the 15mm VW uses in Europe. The wheels are probably 19 or 20 inch. Here in the US we were never given the 15mm from VW.

I was hoping to contribute to this thread soon but turns out the shocks I wanted are at least 2 months away :-(
I've ordered H&R springs and Koni FSDs - hope to get some pics on this thread soon!

Did anyone notice a difference in the fact that eibach makes springs specific for dsg applications while h&r doesn't I am looking at springs but worry about problems if I go h&r

I don't think h&r would be a problem upon further research but dealing with Philly and SJ roads and the fact I will be on stock struts I think Eibach will be the way to go right now

I think eibach would work well for you. I find our car is underdamped so I can't wait for the FSDs to get here. They're leaving US first week of June and I have been waiting since March!
The difference between a DSG and manual gearbox in weight is less than the difference between an average guy and a fat guy
