    I would just like to send a public shout out to Colin at https://www.greeneperformance.com/. I installed the BC Racing coilovers that he custom valves about 2 months ago and am really pleased. Under normal driving they are very much like any other coilover would be, a little stiff. But, not bad as my wife will still ride in the car with me. Under harder loads they are really excellent, and would recommend them to anyone wanting to move over to coilovers, but, not wanting to spend a great deal more for a more for "top end" name brand.

    Love mine also. I've moved up to 8kg/9kg springs (since my car is insane) and they seem about right for me. Probably too much spring for 95% of folks.

    I've had mine on for a few months and they are great! Good ride for coilovers around town and extremely happy with them when carving up back roads. Can't wait to test them on the Dragon.

    Had a set on the car for several track weekends while the "expensive" set were getting refurbed. Car was just as fast.
