any news on TEIN coilovers?

Advertisements are all over the place for the superstreet coilovers for the e90, but the website is useless and so are their replies to emails. can anyone shed any light on the matter? what about the EDFC for the coilovers?

Tein will be coming out with a new CS type colover by the middle of next year. Their "comfort sport" line will accomodate to European vehicles.

Not much of a performance upgrade (other then lower center of gravity), but the height and shocks are adjustable and the ride comfort level will be similar to stock.

This info was according to a Tein representative at SEMA. A demo was available and retail was estimated to fall in the $1600 range.

Yes, there are many other coilovers that will do the job well.

I had tein with EDFC on my other cars and it was absolutely great. It rides stock daily and in seconds you can have a car that will feel like it is on rails.
Other coilovers are just fine and some might be better then TEIN none of them have the EDFC adjustability.
