    First off, Hi!
    New here, been lurking for a while. Will be taking delivery on a 2018 Sedan in a couple of days.
    of course I will be doing a few things to it (non sexual..).

    So to the actual thread. I would like to collect as much info as possible about manufacturers and model-fitment in the categories Coilovers/Struts/springs/bag-struts.

    To make it easier to read i will take any answers and fill them into this list.
    Please reply (if adding to the list) in the following format:

    Type (spring / coil) - Manufacturer & Product name - Year - Body - Price (if available) - Extra info.

    Example (not accurate):

    • Coilovers - Tein Street Advance Z - 2016 onwards - Sedan - €750 - Includes hardware.
    • Air Struts - D2 (struts only) - 2016 to 2018 - hath - $1650 - Only struts (no comp/tank/man.)

    PS. If this is a shit idea, let me know. :D

    Given the vastly different price points of the coilover kits, can someone explain the differences between all the choices?

    I certainly believe you get what you pay for, but in this case I don’t know what exactly that would be.

    I would like to think that the company that did the original R&D for the struts would have a higher pricepoint. Some companies just copy a produkt and pump out cheap versions.
    Also consistency of materials / material choice would play a big part in pricing.
    And of course country of manufacturing.
    To be honest i think some big brand coilovers are just priced with a lower margin to increase sales / market proportions!

    Those are my four guesses :)
