what about the struts? cuz to be honest wayway, stiffer springs will blow out your oem non zsp struts in about 20-30k miles. Mine are about blown from having the hr sport springs so now I want to buy the zsp struts to replace them but need to know if they fit.

rear zsp shocks off an "i" will fit in the rear, however, front zsp struts won't fit our xi unfortunately.

I could be wrong, but i don't think koni's have front struts for xi yet, but i know bilstein does. full bilstein front struts w/ pair of rear shocks will cost north of $800, still couple hundred cheaper than a set of KW V1's that are xi specific.

I wish there was a oem ZSP suspension for our xi from factory like the Audi boys.

yeah. well in that case I'd almost rather pick up the coilovers for $300 bucks more.

Thanks for the info

even if you could do the ZSP shocks for your xi, with H&R's you'd end up wanting some performance aftermarket shocks pretty soon. just get some konis and call it a day.

Yea at that price you might as well get some KW V1's. Or, follow the Dinan route and grab some koni or zsp shocks for the rear, keep stock front shocks and lower with Eibach or H&R springs.
