Yeah, that's what i've been learning. dangit - no cheap solutions it seems apart from buying used mods from a totaled 200q20v - not very likely:-(

oh well, i'll hopefully forget about the outlay of cash once i hit the first corner ;-)

sounds like koni/H&R is the way to go. my friend/mechanic will do the install. not for free, but cheaper than most shops.
