Megan Coilover setup. Thoughts?

Has anyone experience the Megan coilover setup? I like how it comes with camber adjustable plates. Thoughts?

I can't really say anything about those coilovers in particular... but when the price is that low for a whole coilover kit, I would steer clear. Don't be surprised if the quality is absolutely horrible or if it fails within a few weeks/months.

If you're looking for the cheapest set of quality coilovers, consider these: http://thesuspensionsource.mybigcomm...-coilover-kit/

They were made by KW and are overall great coilovers for the money.

Idk Megan is a really big name in suspension... I personally have not had these, but just because they are on the cheaper side, doesn't necessarily mean it's low quality.

I wouldn't recommend them, the quality across their whole product line is just above average eBay china junk. For coilovers I would stick with something proven like KW or Bilstein.

I have them on my 97 Sc400, got them for 650. I'm not gonna comment on the ride because it's not gonna be the same on a bmw. but for what it's worth you can't beat the price.

If you plan on keeping the car for a few years, definitely save up for a better brand.

My brother had megan coil overs on his lexus is300 and they were great. Even with Illinois and their shitty roads they lasted.

Their website is a bit clunky, but KW makes great coilovers... so if I were looking for cheaper coilovers, i would definitely go with these.

Yes, I was originally looking at KW V1 for my e93. Nothing crazy as the car is a cruiser.

I have megans on my car with swift springs. I dont know why everyone is hating on megans. The coils are great and theyve been great for the past 15k miles. Ive had no problems with them except that the stock springs it came with were too soft for my taste. So I swapped them with swift springs with higher spring rates.

What spring rates did you go with?
