Default BC Racing Coilovers

GoMiata.com sells some new (I Haven't seen them before..) Coilovers by BC Racing. Did some google searching and haven't really found anyone with Miata experience, but did find several installs from WRX's and EVOs with some good reviews.

Anyone ever heard of them or used them?

They're not as cheap as I figured at $1250.00, but it makes me wonder how they'd hold up to H&R, JIC, etc?

A few people on CR have them and like them. I'd def pick them over D2's. They are actually second on my list after Flex's.

I paid 985 shipped through a distributor on roadsterdrift. I never personally owned the flex, but I'm damn happy with the ride quality on these. I was able to pick my own spring combination also (10k/8k).

Yes, I also don't ever plan on having to since you can replace the shock cartridges for fairly cheap directly through BC

I do not understand people who buy no-name suspension. GoMiata is not exactly a suspension guru-type shop. For $1200 you can get Konis and GCs (hell, you can revalve the front Konis and do my rates for that price), you can get a set of used Flexes, you could do some FCM Bilsteins with coilovers, and all of those will have a shitload of setup data and support the BCs cannot match.

If CR.net guys like them, that's reason enough for me to stay the **** away.

One could say the same thing about FM's new stuff, but it appears to be pretty ******* awesome.

The AFCOs or JIC's? I just can't justify spending $2000.00 on suspension so I'm looking for quality alternatives. From what I've seen of Tein I don't like their coilovers, so there aren't many alternatives left..
