Boge v. Cofap Decision

In my last post I told you about my search for new shocks. Well after great research and some minor hiccups I finally decided on going with cofap for the front and the back. I originally was going to go with boge in the front and cofap in the back, since for some odd reason there are no rear boge to be found. That idea was derailed when I discovered that the boge would required an extra kit to install them since my current shocks are not stock, but KYBs.

In my research I found many blogs that recommended using KYBs, but my mechanic discouraged me from them, saying that he and most people he knows feel like they are too stiff for VWs. He recommended Boge, a German brand, or Cofap, from Brazil, because he flt in his experience that they gave a more stock like feel.

My shocks arrived Wednesday, so I have a fun weekend ahead of me.

    My thoughts exactly ! Just kidding……it’s all Greek to me. I guess, I would have gone with what Scott/your dad went with. I would have trusted him with my life, and since he was my mechanic when the bug was mine,
    he was the best !!!
