Opinion about these coilovers

getting a deal on these Vogtland coilovers...I rode in the guys car and none of the coilovers are blown....what do you think about the condition of these coilovers by the photos...he says about 40,000km on them..on a scale out of 10(10 being mint) how would you rate the condition?..

I think he is about 40-50k on them.
Personally i would not buy second hand suspension. And Vogtland are quite harsh on the road. I would rather get some Bilsteins and some eibach springs. If you are looking for cheap way to lower your car i think it would be best to just get a new kit from a cheap brand. Three things i always spent the maximum amount of money i can is Tyres-Brakes and suspension. So no second hand stuff unless i really know who had them.

"Lo there do I see my father.
Lo there do I see my mother.
Lo there do I see my brothers and my sisters.
Lo there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning.
Lo they do call to me
they bid me take my place among them in the Halls of Valhalla,
where the brave may live forever"

I'd say they look like they're in pretty good condition... 40k sounds about right.. but that's quite a bit when it comes to suspension, so keep that in mind!

Also unless you're getting a good deal on them I wouldn't bother... like if you can buy new suspension for $400-500 more then I would buy new. But thats just me.
