e90 Megan Racing Coilovers - 335i - Euro Street 32 way adjustable

Hey Guys, there are not many reviews out there for Megan Racing coilovers for our platform so I decided to be the guinea pig...So far they are great! I will keep this thread updated if I have any issues and once I go a little lower but if any of you have any questions just let me know.

Update:

Lower rear strut mount, pic attached, is having issues and keeps breaking. Seems to be a manufacturing issue and they are going to have to redesign/ remanufacture them

My buddy had them on his e92. While they are very adjustable and great at getting the ride height perfect, I was not impressed with the way the car rode afterward at all. Maybe it needed more adjusting, not sure. It was very bouncy though. They felt like cheap coilovers. I hope your experience is better.

Hmm interesting, see I have mine on the middle setting (16) and I think it rides very similar to the factory sport suspension just a little stiffer. I took some really windy roads on sunday and they performed great

I would hold off on ordering these for now, seems to be a defect in the lower rear shock mounting stud. They may have to redesign them

Damn.. I already purchased them and they're at my house. I'll see if anything is wrong with mine when I install them. If there is, I'll definitely contact them

The least anyone should be spending on is BCs. Anything less and you're asking for problems...

They are all made by the same factories since they are all trading companies. Best would be getting koni sports or bilstein b8s if your on a budget. I can guarantee that those 32 way adjustable damping is seriously flawed or don't match each other at all. Suspension is a big myth, and people shouldn't be allowed to give reviews on these items.

Realistically just follow D.G's guide, http://farnorthracing.com/autocross_secrets18.html

After they made me pay for replacement lowers two times, which also broke (three in total), I gave up on them and went with Bilstein

These things can take a beating! They have been running strong for years now. The only other setup I would recommend is KW V1 if you have a little extra cash, or BC racing if you really want the adjustability.
