i love tein coilovers, but then again, the apexi is basically a stock like feel ride...so i would consider getting those.=]

I have heard that the Tein CS are a waste of money. They basically give you a stock ride. If your going to spend that much on coilovers why not get something that will make you handle hella good. I would be hesitant to buy anything for my suspension with the word "Comfort" in it.

i heard that the CS (comfort series) rides similar to the apex'i coilovers. i really don't think they are the best tiens...they may be the best for comfort...not handling.

the ultimate tien setup would be the RS...aluminum/alloy body - stiffer valving
and more aggressive. shock is height adjustable in two locations (rebound and dampening???). i think it has a reservoir too...the ultimate!!! heh...


these are some ballpark prices that i found for the tiens...

HR no Pillowball - $1100
HR w/ PB - $1450
HA no PB - $1300
HA w/ - $1650
RA w/ - $2050
RS w/ - $2700
CS w/ - $1780

i forget how much the apex'i coilovers go for...it's right around 1200 i think...and i do not think they have one that cost anywhere near 2000 for the IS...

hope this helps...good luck...
