In the meantime, the car has been driven as a daily commuter and the ride quality is quite liveable with the track oriented Bilstein Clubsport suspension. The spring and dampening match are very well matched, so the ride feels refined. Although this may be too stiff for some, anyone who appreciates sports car driving will be very happy behind the wheel of a Bilstein Clubsport equipped car.
We currently have the compression set to full soft with the rebound at two clicks from full soft. This provides a very controlled ride and a tolerable level of firmness from this competition level high end coilover system. We will report back soon with a track review of the Bilstein Clubsport on this Golf R!
