Hi, first post here.

We are waiting for our Cornflower Blue Highline (Canada here :p ) and I am already searching for way too much upgrades or mods.

Since it's not a "real" SUV as it's a crossover... My personal feeling is that it should be lowered.

Right now the only options are :

  • Solo werks coilover
  • H&R spring

But while searching, on the B2BFAB website ( Solo Werks S1 Coilover System - 2022+ Taos AWD, Mk7 Alltrack/GTI/GLI, Audi A3 FWD/AWD )

They list them with compatibility of the following cars :

  • Volkswagen Taos 4motion
  • Volkswagen Mk7 GTI
  • Volkswagen Mk7.5 GTI
  • Volkswagen Mk7 Golf R (w/o DCC)
  • Volkswagen Mk7 Jetta GLI
  • Volkswagen Mk7 Golf Alltrack
  • Volkswagen Mk7.5 Golf Alltrack
  • Audi A3 2.0T Quattro
  • Audi S3 2.0T Quattro (w/o Mag ride)


Now... If searching for these other cars option, there's a lot of choice like bilstein, bc racing and much more.

I come from the Honda world and it's gonna be my first VW.

My common sense tells me it should be possible to buy a bilstein coilover for the Audi A3 and it will be a bolt on for the taos.

Does anyone have more knowledge that could think this through :) ?

Thank you very much.

Will present the car once it's in our driveway. I have big plans for this baby.

the way VW does things vs other mfg will probably make your quest harder. they have a ~ common platform that shares drivetrain / connection point and geometry compatibility. it allows for different lengths of body propotions also.

not sure about the "not a real SUV", there are very few real SUVs left in the marketplace with most being crossover designs but they are still successful as SUV in many cases. having ground clearance in an AWD platform seems like a good idea for snow in particular in Canada.

What I meant with "not real SUV" is for the size only. We are more used to see bigger thing. I fell in love with the model and the tiguan but it is a little bit too big for our townhouse garage and I have an F150 provided by my employer as a work truck so the big task are covered here. I don't want it to have zero Clearance or stances anything. I just want it to have less fender gap. I love the tiguan handling and its higher. I just felt the handling of the taos being "in between". Even if that's why it's been created, I'm not sure about the feeling but we still fell in love with the model. So I could either lift or lower it and for me and as a daily driver it makes more senses to lower it (a bit) ans don't you worry about ground clearance with snow I used to drive a slammed civic when I was a young adult and it was not an issue in the winter. I'm still confused about the VW platform but kind of get the idea. I didn't know about that seller (b2bfab) before so I don't know if their fit listing is trust worthy.
