First you are looking at coilovers @ $2.5K a CORNER which for that kind of money would be primarily designed for a track focused car......
Then on the flip side you are looking at bags which are for hard parked cars who want the slammed look, with little to no focus on handling.
Sometimes I think you and Flinchy just like to post stuff like this to get people to react.
Anyway.....
If you are serious stick to a brand of coils that are tried and tested and don't cost an arm and a leg. Besides you're driving ability will be the limiting factor not the coils, KW v2 are a nice place to start.
Is this going to be a track focused car? Are you a professional driver with very consistent lap times, hoping to shave tenths off your times? If yes then go ahead and buy the boutique coils. If not but want a nice drop and improved handling for spirited driving buy KW V1 or V2.
I wouldn't touch bags....
My 2 cents
I do realize that I'm not stupid

I'm actually still deciding whether to go for performance/track or a show car and wanted input from people with EXPERIENCE with MCA

who regardless I want to support rather than going KW because I know them and their work

And also, Because well quite frankly, Flinchy already has a track build in the works and I CBF, so I will most likely go for making my car slammed and showy

Your negativity towards me isn't welcome in this thread, I do not post things just to get a reaction. Sometimes I actually do know what I'm talking about
You wrote the question not me. I didn't once call you stupid, nor did I think my post was negative in any way.

I just couldn't get my head around the post (maybe I'm stupid?), it's like asking "I can't decide weather to buy a Nissan GTR or a Mercedes S class" they are completely different cars with completely different uses/goals, polar if you will!
Both get you from A to B but nobody can make that decision for you.


KW are a extremely good product , I know several member who are running them or had run then including myself and would definitely recommend them. Talk to Stu from BMR.
And as I have said
I'm aware they have different uses
That's why I have asked for info on both?

Because I'm genuinely curious as to which way I should go

I've already decided I really do not want KW so that's off the table. Hence why I have asked specifically about these two different particular suspension types
