Not quite sure about my car falling apart, if I'm not mistaken your car was built by BMW just like mine.

As much as you boost and hack away at your car, I will be looking for the post when it takes a sh*t

And yes I had a H&R Cup kit just like you and took it off because I didn't like the soft ride and excessive rake
nonsense, did you all say RL spring rates are like 300lbs/in... thats a marshmallow ride playa... thats the consensus of all the RL reviews ive read, theyre too soft.

He was comparing suspension, not the cars, dont get bent out of shape or go off topic. Its still just his opinion against all you RL fans, yes he's KPeng, but so fukin what?

i think its safe to say lightly boosting his BMW it will probably still outlast your RL shocks and springs.

You're right, it never existed before your thread, all hail Kpeng.

I love how so many people on this forum wait at the moment to jump at what I say, and twist it into something else. It's flattering, really. lol.

I know that the debate has waged on forever, which is why I made this thread in the first place. But look at the Suspension subforum and all the Raceland threads that just got bumped up. That's what I was referring to my friend

Hatred is the highest form of flattery.

Actually Snikwad just bumped every thread to the top to link them to his thread. Your arrogance is astounding by the way, and is what annoys me about you, I thought Id let you know since you enjoy being flattered so much.

The Kpeng Character is known to display such a quality. However, Kpeng speaks the truth, and does so in humorous manner that may be difficult for some to understand. Tis ok. Carry on.

But seriously though, I was merely commenting on these coilover systems, and how shocked I am to find people actually expressing disappointment over its quality.

This is a war I will love to watch from the sidelines and I will cheer on KPeng... not because I have a more expensive system but I honestly can't believe that such a cheap system could be safe, yet alone ride/handle well. Additionally, almost everyone who has used fancier systems and then switches to these has hated on them hardcore. It appears the majority of those praising the kit bought the car used with a bunch of miles on it, bought these, and is "very pleased". Given they are likely coming from blown/worn OEM suspension and likely have never riden in better systems, I don't find their reviews all that helpful.

Regardless,

kpeng, it's an opinion and everyone has a right to their opinion and their own choice of what they want to put on their cars. You have to stop being so arrogant and thinking you are the best. You seriously need to kick it down a notch. I respect some of your opinions and keep my mouth shut at others, but really this thread and opinion of yours was unnecessary.

If you say everyone has a right to their opinion, then I have a right to mine as well. What's so arrogant about posting this thread? Is it any worse than someone boasting about their Racelands or talking about what a disaster it turned out to be?

Anyone who wants to run these coilovers, by all means, I'm not your daddy. But this is just a forewarning, that's all. I just do not see one single justifiable reason to get this kit.

If you read carefully, I said you were entitled to your opinion, but it was unnecessary to post this thread to share it. You have NO PROOF to prove these are 'bad' kits as well as there is NO PROOF to show these are 'good' kits.

The proof is in the people who are stunned that their $200 coilovers broke.

That could be do to many variables (installation, integrity of other parts of the car, etc) which = not proof
