H&R Stage 3.5 Cup Kit - VW 2000 GTI 1.8T
The H&R Cup Kit is a set of lowering springs that are between sport and race settings, and a set of struts/shocks matched to the springs. Due to demand and effectiveness of the kit, the cost is actually not that bad! You can find the kit at most retailers for about $575.
Aggressive looks even on the stock rims and tires!
A cup strut ready to go in. Here, the upper rubber was replaced with the VW Motorsport supports (manufactured by Bilstein, in the red box)
Are we missing something here? Notice the "flat" intake pipe on the right.

Add some nice rims and tires and it finishes the look
