Exclamation Calling all BC Racing Coilover owners...

Please answer these questions;

1. How long have you had them?

2. Have you had any issues with them?

3. Have you tracked them? If so, how much and how is the track handling?

4. How is the street comfort/ride quality?

5. Do you adjust them for track/street or just leave on one setting? If so, what setting?

Looking to order a set of the BR's today or tomorrow and getting some feedback that they are too inexpensive to be good. Just want to see what actual owners have to say...

1. About 5 weeks.
2. No issues.
3. No track time yet.
4. Ride quality...7/10 on bad, uneven streets...9/10 on even, smooth streets...average: 8/10.
5. I adjust them all the time to experiment...right now... front 14 out of 30, rear 9 out of 30.

Did you buy anything else to accompany these or do they cover everything including adjusting camber? seems like a sweet set up for 1k.

I had a bunch of other suspension components replaced when these were installed, but you will only need an adjustable panhard bar. The BC Racing BR-Type coilover set comes with everything else, including your camber adjustment.

Side note: I am thoroughly enjoying these coilovers. It's been about 10 weeks now, 2500 miles. Still experimenting with what they can do and have them adjusted even firmer (17/30 front, 11/30 rear). No squeaks, no rattles, no clunking, very smooth rebound/compression. Very happy...I'm sure they will hold up well...this guy has put over 40K miles on his import: http://www.myg37.com/forums/brakes-a...coilovers.html
I would recommend them.
