B7 VW Passat on H&R Street Performance Coilovers

Even the stereotypically German, sterile B7 VW Passat can be look better with the right choice of modifications. A drop always looks good, especially a nice tasteful drop on an otherwise stock car – like this B7 Passat here. Driven by an older enthusiast who doesn’t feel like looking like a boyracer anymore but still wants the car to look good and be fun to drive, this Passat is a prime example of why coilovers are great on more than just race cars.

Offering a drop range of 1.5in – 2in up front and 1.25in-2.5in at the rear, there’s a lot of room for adjustment to set your ride height for a subtle drop or slammed out stance.

The H&R Coilovers eliminate the nasty excess wheelgap, and sitting low, the Passat suddenly has a sharper, more dynamic feel to it.

We set the drop on the Passat just enough to get rid of the wheelgap while still leaving plenty of travel to soak up the imperfections of SoCal’s crumbling, pot-hole plagued roads – ideal for a daily driver like this.

This Passat just goes to show how much a drop alone can improve the look of your car, and we’re big fans of how the car came out – considering how the owner plans to use it. Not every build is identical, and figuring out the best solution for how you use your car is just one of our specialties.
