What is your goal? Are you trying to lower the car or go for better handling?
If you're after better handling, a rear sway bar is going to be your best bang for the buck.

I installed 2003 Beetle springs, not lowering, and they were almost say size as OEM. 50k and no problems. I recommend them.
This where my confusion is coming from -- folks like yourself are having no issues using 1998- 2006 Beetle spring but when I bought my 2003 spring they are too long. Are there different springs for the Beetle from the factory other than lowering springs?
The problem may be buying new? I dunno.
My Suzuki Swift rear springs still works great for 5 years and its still has the same height and stance.
Didnt noticed any change in height. No bottoming at all.
