You really think Im gonna read 12 pages of bickering and sh!t talking about a set of $300 coilovers? The OP should have edited his original post to elaborate on his error since this was a review. I stand by my original post until there is proof that a set has lasted 5 years+ without any mishaps or replacements of equipment by the manufacturer.

Also, usually people capitalize the first letter of a sentence and "ur" is spelled "you're". Periods at the end of sentences have been in style for quite some time now.

I never knew a set of coilovers could become such an emotional issue.

Yea it is pretty slammed. I have a set of tein basics dancing in there. I will however switch to RL as soon as they get here just to see what they feel like. There is way to much discussion and way too many people that haven't tried them on making statements. So I want to be able to accurately participate in the discussions. That's what being a fanatic means to me. Oh, and your car is sick btw. Nice job.

Thanks bro. I def agree that a lot of people are coming to conclusions before really knowing much about the product. Your Tein setup looks great so make sure to post your RL review when you get them. I'm really tempted to get the RL's too.

I know. I love them too. I am only getting the RLs because I believe in business competition. Why not give them a chance? I like variety. Hehe.
