It's build-to-order from Japan Ohlins (CARROZZERIA JAPAN).

I almost got those, but they were too expensive, about $4k shipped to Canada. Ended up ordered KW V3. They are awesome coils, good choice.

Ohlins are really expensive but they're well worth the price. Had a set for my bike and it made a huge difference. They're on most high end bikes and race cars! Definitely worth the price if you track the car!

Wow those looks really nice for sure, but yeah at that price point I'd probably just go with KW's.

I am planning to get some KWs also. Does your AVS function still work (I know J5 coils are AVS compatible but I prefer KW than J5)? And is there a check light on your dash after install?

KW is still on its way to me. I'm currently running BCR, AVS won't work as its not compatible with the system. Dash won't show a light.

They are not the same level...
I've considered HKS, KW, RS-R and then I found this BTO Ohlins and I ordered it without any hesitation.

I do not track my car. Used kW v2 on my previous car, love the ride and I beleive its sufficient for street use so I ended up getting the v3. If I do go to track, ohlins for sure but anyways nice choice on the coils and pls give us some reviews on it.
