I would go with megan. I am actually about to get some too. They are not expensive and some of the 350z guys swear by them.

For the money. I would take Megan over Tein basics any day.
Full height adjustment + 32 Levels of Damper adjustments.

honestly you cant go wrong with either brand. for the money both sets of coilovers are great. they both offer seperate height and spring rate adjustments, and offer dampening adjustments. i have ridden in cars with megans coils, and honestly the ride quality on them is unbelievable. dont waste your money on tein basics

Riding in a car with the suspension and driving the car with the suspension for thousands of miles are two completely different stories...

I've had my F&F coils for about 6 months now and i LOVE them, i had basics prior and these are SOO much better in every way.
I've riden in a few cars with different setup's and these coils rode smoother than all of them.
If you're gonna be tracking the car i would recomend something stiffer. The megans you can get stiffer ratings. The F&F come with the same spring rates as BC coils.

If you want a smooth setup for daily driving but want the adjustability in height and dampening then they are great coils.

Of course you're gonna get the Tein, Stance, JIC, etc homers in here telling you **** that they have only read about. If you have never ran these setups or even riden in them please don't comment on how you "think" the quality is.

You dont need a $1500+ coilover setup plain and simple!!! 99% of the people on here who drop that much cash only end up droping the car and thats it...

ok let me rephrase..i have ridden and driven in a few cars with megan coils, one car being a lexus is350, and one being a 240sx drift car. both cars rode/drove perfectly fine. i can say that the is350 rode a lot better than my other friends that had zeal coils, and HONESTLY, on spirited drives through twisties, you cant feel the difference in handling between the two.

megan racing is know to be a "knock off" company, but to be honest, their coilovers are great and are made by the same manufacturers of some bigger brands

Your post is still pointless...

My point is, drive the same car with that suspension for at least a couple thousand miles before you try to give your opinion on it, because until then, you don't know the characteristics of the suspension well enough to give a good review.

Let's put it this way...

Many "testers" put on NEX suspensions and the reviews after the first 3 months were great so far... I've ridden in a few cars with them and I've had chances to drive them around too. But it turns out after a few thousand miles, everything changes because that suspension is a complete piece of sh*t, but I wouldn't have known that because I don't have it on my car.

So based on what you're saying about the Megans, they can be just like the NEX because your personal experience with them are just as limited.

BTW, if they're properly tuned in, I bet you will feel a difference between them...
