    Mazdaspeed coil overs vs. bc vs. autoexe

    I have been set on the mazdaspeed coil over suspension upgrade for a while, but I have heard lots of good things about some of the competitors out there such as the BC coil overs and autoexe tunable suspension. The prices are all different and I'm just curious which suspension upgrade everyone feels is the best upgrade:

    BC coil overs: $1,000-$1,250
    Mazdaspeed Coil Overs: $1,400-$1,800
    Autoexe Tunable suspension: $2,500 +/-

    I just switched from tein superstreets to the mazdaspeed coilovers. The Mazdaspeeds do everything so well, I am really impressed with them. They definently get my vote.

    Why did you switch from the Tein SS coilovers? Im kinda curious cause those are the ones Im looking at, those and the BC Coilovers are on the top of the list. Ive heard all good things from the BC's and also think that with the others all you are really paying for is the name on them. You could buy 2 of the BC's for the price of the auto exe ones haha.

    How about the KW V2s? My first concern is ride quality and want something that's going to maintain near stock compliance.

    So far pretty close between the mazdaspeed and bc's. For those of you who say the BC's are better, what specifically, besides price, do you like about them more than the mazdaspeeds?

    This is still really close....I haven't been persuaded away from the mazdaspeed coil overs yet. Unless someone can give me definitive advantages of the BC's over the mazdaspeed coil overs, I think I'm going to go according to my original plan and stick with the mazdaspeeds.

    Only thing I can think of, the BC's will lower the car way more then the Mazdaspeed ones.
