Ye i only noticed that too when i took them out of the box!!! Hope there not too bad! Cost me 960 for the coilovers from Tuning factory. still debating where to get them fitted. they were looking for 240 for fitting ill ring around and see can i get them done cheaper but i think thats a reasonable price as far as im aware there is only one type of coilover for the Altezza

getting them fitted tomorrow for 180, did a bit of negotiating with them. I wouldnt risk doing this myself, not too handy in the suspension department! The will be firmer than standard but still comfortable

I don't think the will be comfortable but on flat even roads(The kind we don't have in this country) they will be excellent :lol:

I'm surprised you managed to knock Andy down by €60 :shock:

So before pic:

and with the coilovers fitted: :lol:

Rear lowered:

Front lowered:

Opinions?? Not sure how much its lowered but just enough, no rubbing at all. the dampening is set quite firm at the mo ill get that changed at the weekend to a bit softer. rides the bumps well and no scraping on the ramps. Only thing im worried about is the way they secured the brake line onto the coilover, its just held on with a cable tie

Sitting really well dan. Just the right height. As for the break line its not ideal but once they didn't tie it too tight it should be ok. The line only needs to be out of the way really so once they didn't close in the line. I'm sure they have done it that way before. Most kits dont usually have an anchor for the line

Looks good. Agreed the tiewrap is bit of a bodge...

I know with my Apexi N1s they came with an extra bracket to secure the brake hose (slightly different now with 6pots)

they look sweet :D

the black cable nearer to you in the pic is the ABS wire, you would want to make sure there is plenty of play in it. if not the wires inside could break and you wouldnt see by looking at it!

the black pipe behind the coilover is your brake pipe. i cant see from the pic whether it is also secured by the cable tie. maybe it is mounted on a proper bracket??
