Looks absolutely Awsome!!!!
Any feedback on the suspension now it’s been on a while??
Yeah it’s really good! Mines about 45mm but doesn’t feel any stiffer than my BMW on standard shocks. Really good road holding, and so far no clearance issues although I haven’t had anything too horrendous terrain wise so far.

Really glad I got the coil overs. All about the stance Feels like the perfect compromise height v looks v practicality

That’s exactly what I wanted to hear Thankyou...mine have arrived and sat at the dealers but the van hasn’t :mad: looking forward to it even more now though....
Also I couldn’t agree more with the stance/looks/ride quality....
Your van really does look awesome!!!!
I think when your spending so much money on a California you need to be able to make your van look how you want it to look without compromising the warranty...vw doing these approved coil overs is great and well over due.

That’s what I thought in the end. I’ve basically spent an extra £4K to get it looking how I wanted it, without risking warranty etc. It’s not that much in comparison to the cost of the van. The wheels actually cost me less than the standard vw 18” upgrade and I still kept my spare wheel too.

Thanks for that, did find them on there web site local dealer offering them for £260 a corner very reasonable.

Thanks again.
I paid £1555 for all 4 with good year tyres.. Larkspeed Leeds. Everyone else was offering with Falkens for similar money but I thought the Good years looked better

Hi picture of my van on 30mm lowering springs and 16inch wheels.
Cost £300 plus vat at dealer, probably the best value option vw do!
One thought, if you go lower and fit a towbar mounted bike carrier you will seriously limit campsite access on undulating ground.

Hi Alpen,

Love the wheels, would like those for winter wheels, are you able to advise if they are weight rated for the California.
Just to butt in, I couldn't find any reference to actual load rating but this should settle any worries.
