Megan racing coilover

Long storie short, i changed my rtab and rsm and realise that my rear shock are almost done .

The only thing is the only review that i've see is from nissan and suby's guy. The 2 or 3 review that i see fromBM owner's were good exept the one only judjing with the price.

Also interested! My friend has them on his 240, but i want to know about the e36.

How can you get them for that price?

I didn't think they made a race version for the E36. Or you mean as in the Brand "Megan Racing" and the LP series?

from what i heard from some of the e46 m3 guys is that its a cheap coilover for a cheap price. you'll get what you paid for basically. you'll end up having issues with it sooner or later.

bump for this question.

Can anyone who has these currently installed provide any feedback?

Seems like you get a LOT, for little $. unless the build quality is poor... appears to be pretty decent.

thats exactly what it is. i believe they say they have 32 way adjustment which doesn't really act as 32 ways...maybe 8. and the ride is very bouncy. they are like k-sport coilovers. just a general shock and spring combo that can be put together for many cars for cheap.

i say spend a bit more cash and get something with higher quality. like ground control or bilstiens.

Bilstein PSS for the E36 are still my favourite...thats what I'm running!

I beat the piss out of them they have 140,000km on them are are still running strong. I think Turner Motorsports has them still for about $1000 plus shipping and tax which will be about the same money.

Is it worth sacrificing "great" quaility for " good" quailty and get adjustable mounts and dampers with it? Cause that's the difference between the megans, bc, and others compared to the bilsteins pss.(price to price comparo)

I have driven the PSS9 which has adjustable shocks and I didn't think it was woth the extra money from Bilstein thats why I went with the PSS. That said I do have BC Racing ER series on my S2000 and I really like them.

Personaly I would never buy Megan they are cheap and I hear their longevity isn't great, like I said 140,000km on my bilstien and still running strong.

Interms of the adjustability I would go with SPC control arms (aluminum) and their camber plates. These I also have they are amazing. I'm slammed and stilling running stock alignment because of them.
