Got my new coilovers fitted on Friday. Gotta say they are awesome, had them set up for fast road with custom spring rates and dampers (in standard form they are offered with a spring rate of 12/6 which was a bit to hard for me).

Seem really well made and great value for money. Got to give a shout out to Apex performance who sold them for all the help in choosing the right set-up and getting them to me so quickly (around a weeks turnaround time for a custom set-up :nice:)

Had a few days to test em out and they are a vast improvement over the standard set up (even in my close to standard set up). Really good ride quality and dampening on bad roads. :nice:

niiiiiiiiiiiice, looks spot on stance wise with those wheels :nice:

what spring rates you go for? my BC coilovers with 12/8k rates are indeed pretty harsh even with the damping wound back :shocked: (although mega fun, makes you feel you're in a little race car, lol)

Cheers dude. They're BC Racing not Buddyclub ;).

I went for 6/4 to get something similar to superstreet's/standard but with the ride height adjust at the bottom instead of on the spring perch.

You say you had them set-up for "fast road", you got camber arms on the car?

Cheers for the comments guys :D

Not yet, but they are on the list as the rear camber is a bit out after being set so low.

Yeh seen a few good reviews various forums, theres also a vid showing the different levels of damper adjust in action on a scooby:

Didn't have time to take a pic before I fitted them. They are essentially these with different top and bottom mounts:

BC Racing = Megan Racing = APEXi

Are they good coilovers? Yes they are :)

They are the best coilovers to come out of Taiwan, period. If you are after a set of budget coilovers, these are the ones to get.

Probably confusing APEX Performance (an importer/retailer) with APEXi (a manufacturer) - Apex'i
