K Sport/D2 generic coilovers that like to snap. Go MCA or springs + dampers (e.g. STi springs + KYB or Koni dampers)

It depends on what you can tolerate or how much you value you and your passengers' lives :p

?????????? not everything made in taiwan is rubbish - hell even chinese stuff is getting better these days. sure has become a more expensive country to buy from (importing experience)

I have the XYZ and bought them on the Gold coast - couldnt be happier. just ensure you select a spring rate you are happy with - think they were 9kg front and rear standard which i changed to 8 and have on about 7 back from softest setting being wifes daily. easy twist of the knob firms it up for spirited driving

I didn't say everything made in Taiwan is rubbish. E.g. D2/KSport/ATTKD/etc brake kits are decent and survive track days.

Like I said, it depends on what you can tolerate. After driving my friend's Evo8 with MCA Blues, I wouldn't bother with anything else unless I'm desperate (like I was and threw second hand Bilstein in my car).

I had K Sport coilovers in my Gen 3 and they were harsh as and pretty sure they got bent a bit after a while. Like others have said, I'd recommend saving a little more and paying for something with a better rep
