BC BR coilover review with a few install pics

Speacial thanks to "Project335i" for all of his adjustment help LOL!!

I have to say these are great coilovers, the transformed my car into what it should be!

Ride comfort: = 8 out of 10:

Keep in mind it is 25 degrees out here and I have 20" rims with 245/30/20 and 285/25/20 so the ride will be rougher. With 18-19" rims these would probably get a 9 out of 10. You notice bumps but it is more feed back...rebound is great when going at high speeds. If you can hande springs and shocks these are WAY more comfortable

Adjustability: = Easy (I have front at 10 clicks from softest setting in front and 8 in back)

Handling: 10 out of 10:

Car is planted, does not hunch and give on hard cornering, much better grip.....just plain amazing!

Quality: 10 out of 10 (pics below speak for themselves)


OEM not in good shape LOL!!

Issues: = 1 (Have to modify one OEM part)...see below for easy fix

Install pics:

Settling: Mine settled 1/4" from pic below (I raised the back slightly when it settled)
