I just messaged him regarding his last youtube video because he told me he will put one up with my coilovers:

"Hey mate,

The GT4 sounds good. The current car is a 1995 Subaru Impreza WRX STI Version 2, Type RA. I've done all the work myself and it has a stock 2L engine, TD06h-20G turbo, your coilovers and heap of other mods.

In that last video at Winton it is indeed your coilovers in my car.

Cheers mate."

so for about 1050 american i can get dual springs, full adjustability, a steel lower mount...

how about height range, how low can i go on these coils? are they powdercoated or painted? how long do these last? will they stand up to a winter in chicago(ridiculously harsh salting and snowing)?

im just wondering because coilovers will be my next mod, and if i can get the from a member here, then i would trust them a little more. just let me know, because i think i have made up my mind.

thanks

Yes, know the AUD is strong so it's a bit more:

for steel mounts, your choice of springs, rear camber plates, dual springs it's 1170aud shipped. But's that's with the rear camber plates (extra 60aud/pair).

Tell us how low you want to go and we make them to suit.

I'm not sure about the paint i will get back to you later today.

How long do they last will depend on how you drive, and how you set them. If you drive on the hardest setting all day, and you drive into every single pot hole, of course it will last less than stock suspensions since there is more pressure on the shocks. They will last as long as any coilovers and it will be easy when you need a rebuilt.

You have a 1 year warranty. After that you can contact me if you need any spare parts. You deal directly with me.

Thanks for your interest.

They are usually spray painted (like most coilovers on the market).

But we can do electro painting free of charge. It will resist better against your weather.

Plus you have a 1 year warranty, if something goes wrong, you don't even need to send the old parts back, we will send you new ones.



if this were the case couldnt one just say within the year the coilovers were pooched just to get a new set if we didnt have to send the old ones back?

also most gt four owners dont drive their prizes over the winter.....some do, but that said i drive my gt four maybe 4 months out of a year....so say after 2 years i only have 8 months worth of driving on them....if they were pooched out by then and with no warranty left...id be pretty p-od....paying over 1000 bucks for coilovers......have you had any feedback from long term owners of these say over 1 or 2 years? , not just someone who tried them for a small amount of time and liked them?

It would be the same with a set of Tein.

Warranties on coilovers only covers manufacturer defects. (There are no warranties that cover wear and tears with any brands) Simply because you don't know how people drive their cars.

Since when we started in May 2010, with all the kits we've sold. (most of them were outside ebay). We only had 2 noisy shocks due to people not putting any pre load on the springs. We sent them a free shock anyway. And a few customers are doing gravel rally and regular track events, we've never had any claims.

With coilovers, it will either go bad straight away due to manufacturer defects, or go bad straight away due to wrong installation. When they do it's only one part that go bad or so, not the whole set.

So you think people will try to claim a FULL set under manufacturer defects after 11months of driving in order to get a free set?

We use quality parts, the shocks are valved to your requirements (spring rates, rally/tarmac etc...). And it's the same factory as the cusco and selex coilovers.

I have talked with MXP_57 through ebay and email and with Tein themselves. To have Tein make the exact same, setup using only tein basic dampners, as mxp's would cost you almost 3 times the amount. :crazy: yes tein is well respected and proven but if mxp is standing behind his product with a warranty its worth the risk to me and I will be buying a set for my 165 in february.

I may still have the emails from tein to prove it.... I think lol
