Think driving through a construction site at 25-30 mph.
P.S. How do you like your B6?
Yeahh.. maybe not the best idea... If anything though, consider a conservative drop on just springs like Eibach pro kit. Gets rid of a lot of the wheel gap, but keeps it as close to OEM ride height as possible.
The b6 has treated me well over the years, i got it at 18, and i'm now almost 25. I didnt start modding it until about my senior year in college due to not having any serious money to put into it. All in all, no big issues other than a couple CV boots needing to be done, a transmission seal, and a minimal coolant leak that had to be dealt with last year. (and obviously a timing belt/water pump job)

Thanks, i said the same thing for the longest time, and then i finally bought some Koni struts and eibach springs for a minimal drop. Drove on them for about 2-3 years until last summer when i got some KW's. No issues yet.
They are currently paired with:
034-Motorsport rear sway and adjustable end links
034- Track density motor mounts
034- Track density strut mounts
APR snub mount
While theres a lot of noise and vibration in the cabin, the handling is track worthy even at 3500lbs
The way I see it, no need to rush into modding your car.... If you enjoy it, then leave it alone... i only started modding mine because over the years with the B8 coming out and such, i felt i needed to fall in love with my car again. When you do decide to drop it, you wont regret it.
