Beautiful car, Matt. I REALLY dig it. I absolutely love the CT. I am contemplating getting rid of my 3GS for one. Someone convince me not to!

Holy crap, love your ct matt! You made such a big change within such a short time! I still remember when you first joined the club and complaining you scratched your front bumper within a week of owning it! lol..

not really modded in comparison to what i've done to my previous cars, but there isn't much to do to these things. i settled with some bc coilovers because the drop achieved by lowering springs was unacceptable to my standards. the front to rear gap difference bugged me. wish spring companies would rake the stance! would have saved me a grand lol.

How do you like the BC coils? this is probably the route I'm going to take as well since my wife wants it not too low and I like the adjustable factor. Did you buy from a vendor on this site?

I got my last set of BC coils for the IS-F but they sent me the wrong ones so I ended up going with KWV3's.

seeing your car list you have very similar to my past cars. i had an ap1 s2k on tein rs and a e92 m3 on kw clubsports. where do the ct200h bc coils fall in that mix? i'd say they are VERY comfy compared to the other coils i've ran. performance wise? i wouldn't be able to tell since I'm not really tossing the ct into turns like i did with my other cars. I'm sure the bc coils did not hurt nor improve on the ct's handling much. overall i think its a very high quality kit, esp for 1k, i got these over the tanabe coils because it came with the front pillow ball mount, and two the rear shock is threaded so you can adjust rear spring spring load.

i did get it from a vendor on here. circuit motor sports. they will go a little lower if you do not get the rear adjustment extension. you do not need it anyway since the rear shock adjustment is very accessible from the think without removal of any trim pieces.

hope that made sense. let me know if you have another q's

Hi, does your Escort 9500i radar detector work well? Are you able to detect before the police lock your speed on radar? I am thinking about getting one but not sure which is better because I heard some of them don't really work good.

Hello,

I'm new to this site and first time BC Coilovers offender! Is this the lowest the BC will go or can it get any lower (front and back)?

Thanks,

R
