those are VERY good....but costly...Tein's seem to be the best for its cheaper prices compared to the other major brands out there....

I don't know about Bilstein adjustable height units, but non-height adjustable with adjustable damping Bilstein dampers are not that costly. Less than Koni as far as I know.

I actually don't like Tein much, because I have heard from other people that they needed to have them rebuild every 30000km or so, which is very frequent & costly. Tein are ok, but they are not the best.

KYB are good too, & aren't too costly, but then Bilstein are around this price too & you'd be better off with Bilstein as they last for a long long time.

thats very true..in japan Tein is like Tenzo R is to us....like i've said..for their price theyre a very good set of coilovers but theres better out there if your willing to spend the money

I sort of agree with you. Tein is still quite expensive in Japan & I have no doubt's that the quality is higher than Tenzo R. However, a high spec Tein damper/spring unit costs about the same money as some of the superb European brands (like Quantum), & when the price difference is hardly anything, there is no contest.

The thing I hate about it here in Australia, is that in the magazines I get/read, they all praise Tein & suggest Tein is the greatest. It is far from the best. It is still a good product, but the rebuild intervals is what kills their reputation for me.

I would rather some Bilstein damping adjustable struts & a set of Ground Control height adjustable sleeves than some cheap Tein kit. Even the pricer Tein products, I would rather cheaper (in cost & appearance only) European brands.
