The only reason I ask is that I was looking at the setup on a friend's road rally spec Golf Gti - and he likes the Bilstein "post and lever" jacks he buys when advertised as "VW" rather than "Porsche" or "Gp 4 Escort".

Spot the 200 difference between these two?   His target price is 20ish to restore.

Just to show they are still available in the UK, and new, and cheap.

The difference between the Porsche and VW jacks is that the Porsche one has a knob on top. "With knobs on" costs extra.
