Ive just purchased a set of the Meister R CRD shocks , fitting next weekend , out of the box they look very well constructed -the damper shafts are certainly man enough for the job , I have some camber bolts for the rear shocks . surface coatings seem good enough , but I will dinitrol them anyway
I will report back on fitment and how they perform .

Ive fitted 3 out of the 4 , ran out of time at the weekend , however , they fit fine , comes with new top mount nuts and the top mount studs are much longer than stock , this allows plenty of thread for any strut brace to be fitted - around an inch extra.
the brackets for the abs loom are not spot on oem , but stronger and close enough to not cause an issue and route the loom , likewise the brake hose support mount .
spare allen bolts provided for the front camber plate locking , all adjustments smooth and easy
The coating on shock and springs look very good , much thicker than usual (bilstein etc) , someones thought about it for cosmetics .
side note - I was also replacing the rear wheel studs for longer ones , these were ok , thread was well cut but they do not fit out of the box -you will overstretch them trying to pull them in , they need a thou or so filing off the shank , even then they are tight!
second side note- the same company wheel nuts are shite , threads cut by a blind chinaman -I binned them straight out of the bag
I will update once all alignments etc are done and road testing done

Think someone else had similar issues with regards to stud bolts having to shave them down ...

Low enough for the tyres to jam in the wheel arch , the GT1 s come with a lifetime warranty , which says plenty.
Wheel stud wise - how much to take off studs : they come with a black coating, you need to take off enough so they are shiny silver all around the shank with a very small lead .
Last Shock dragging on a bit - due to the previous owner inviting he- man around to tighten the damn bolts - I've succeeded in rounding the nuts ,using the worlds longest bar- so now have to cut them off

So as it's now taking longer - I'm replacing drop links bushes etc and noticed grease in the front near side wheel , driveshaft Gaitor I expect , so more bits needed .....

Ok , so now shocks are in , drop links ,and the rear anti roll bar is in (whiteline ,cheers Bob) , so its no longer a stock comparrison due roll bar.
two steps forwards and one step back , the rear calipers need replacing , seals are shit , the piston has been mullered previously and the hand brake mechanism shit .
Every time I look at the car something else needs doing .....
So with the delay , I am progressing other parts of the project :
1- I really want active shocks , so trying to retro fit a Tein EFDC system to the Meisters , google show one person has done this
2 -Fitting the charge cooler ( removing the FMIC ) and fitting a smaller FMIC (both charge cooler and intercooler ) I have an AUDI TT intercooler , which fits , its small enough just , the problem is space , its massively tight , running pipework a mare - it has to fit between the top crossmember and top of the radiator , so need some modification , plus I have to squeeze in another water rad and its fans , pump and water plumbing !!!!!
3- Carbon skinning all dash panels , I might try some aramid mix and colour dye in the top coats just to be different - going to be a mountain of wet and dry needed -lol

Sounds good mine used to have both but the charge cooler is enough in itself with second water rad and tank

36 Re: Meister coilovers on 28th August 2017, 6:50 pm

Probably is, but the extra intercooler cant hurt , better recovery time , and a back up in case of charge cooler problems , looks like good end tank design (plastic) and large pipe sizes (larger than the charge cooler) .
It wont drop much pressure and off load a bit of the charge cooler , maybe only one rad fan needed with the charge cooler , which would save a bit of space .
In its audi location about 200 hp of cooling , so relocated maybe 140 ish -every little helps
It will lower the charge cooler efficiency a tad , if it fits ......maybe only 1 foot of pipework

Rear calipers here tomorrow (£65 exchange so not too bad)
Also a massive load of composite stuff , all sorts of fibres , colours , epoxies , clear coats , aramid dyes (special ) clear coat dyes ,bonding agents, accelerators ,digi scales , and a heap of stuff "borrowed" from our composite shop .
So a very smelly time coming up , next door will think I have a chemical drug lab going !!!
I shall see what I can make ....

Well ive started the carbon fibre assembly line , it not cheap or easy or fast , done a dash top in a blue carbon weave ,as my seats have blue alcantara centers , and some other internal plastics .
Now basically anything that comes off the car is going to get carbon fibre -mostly in blue or black ,even the rubber door side protection strips and black bumper lines .
There is a lot of prep needed and each coat needs 8 hours drying time followed by wet sanding ,doing 4 coats , so basically about 3 days for each piece you do .
The finish is super hard much harder than any paint ,so im using it as a sort of paint finish without paint if that makes sense .
laying the carbon is a mare ,getting the weave to align around curves very hard , if you use black epoxy mix as the base adhesive the coloured carbon becomes much deeper , clear adhesive mix is a much brighter coloured finish
The finish = the amount of effort you put in and wasteage is high with materials ,the fibres get everywhere and so far about 50 brushes used and one heat gun as the fibres got into it and flash bang knackered
