they're dirt cheap and fucking sacks of fucking shit.

don't pardon my language. they're horrid. now i'm sure there will be a chain of people saying omg my megan coils are great! but their opinions are wrong. they. are. shit.

edit: and don't think i'm being classist because of what i've had on my car. this isn't my first rodeo. I went the direction i did because i've had shitty coils in the past. don't bother with them unless your roads are glass smooth.

hell, even then don't bother.

For ~900.00 I would go with ST's or HR Cup Kits. You can even get a whole Eibach kit for a little bit more.

Get ST's or FK if they have your fitment (they are very comparable in price). KW V1's can be had on sale for a few hundred more. Megan's are indeed dogshit, not to mention unsafe. Don't do it.
