just a side note - the eibach pro street S setup uses a KW damper (similar to the v1). At least until eibach revamps the line using their own dampers built in-house.

As far as the megans go, I can't help you there, other that a friend of mine had them on his wrx sti for quite some time. Said there were some minor issues with the adjustment collars, but nothing major, and felt that they were decent for what they cost.

Coilover build looks solid. I had PSS9 on my E46 M3 and went to Megan once they blew since I never had any intention to track. They rode the same as my PSS9 and had no issues for over 2 years on the M3.

here are pics of the coils before i installed them. they do come w/ camber plates. adjusting them is finicky since the oem strut bar is in the way. it was a lot easier for the E46. but the option to adjust camber is there from the get go, instead of having to buy seperate camber plates which run $300+

Well Ive had these on my car for a good 20k miles. Still running strong. One thing i didnt like about them were that the spring rates were really low, so i had a lot of play on my rear suspension. I went and swapped my front and rear springs with swift springs with higher rates. My car drives awesome now. The 65mm swift springs will fit because the megan perches are 62mm, 3mm doesnt make much of a difference so yeah.

ISC has a kit on Bavarian Autosport. Includes Camber plates for up front, mounts, all of it. $1200

Looks like the Tein coil overs my friends have on their JDM cars.

Any further reviews? Long term preferred.

thinking about ordering a set any new updates on e92's?

I had a set of Megans on my RSX TypeS for about 100k miles. Bought the car w/ 20k miles on it, put these on and sold the car w/ 120k miles. They drove great, they were a bit stiff for some people, (mostly people who aren't used to lowered cars) but handling was great, they never made any noises. They didn't rust and no parts broke off. (then again i live in florida so don't have to worry about those kinds of issues)

They lasted me about 4 years and i bought them used. So who knows how long previous owner had them. I didn't track my car, it was mostly for street use.

Sorry to revive this from the dead but, ABOSOLUTE GARBAGE, PERIOD!!
I bought these a couple months ago for my 2009 328i coupe, couldnt get ride of vibrations, they made all kinds of noises and are stiffer than riding horseback! I installed them, aligned the car, got wheels rebalanced 10 times and still had high speed body vibrations and the worst road trip ive ever had because of it (from Los Angeles to El Paso Texas). Long story short, swapped them out (after 3 weeks) for another REPUTABLE coilover and instantly high spped body vibration was gone.
I TOTALLY SUPPORT INEXPENSIVE COILOVERS (LIKE VMAXX OR KWV1) BECAUSE THEY ARE OK BUT THESE ARE JUNK. SORRY MEAGAN,LOL!
Also, for the guys that are trying to build themselfs a little weekend race car,avoid these, all youll be making is a little junk car. With these on my car every crack in the road i hit felt like i was breaking something structural and i would basically sceam out in pain, lol!!!
