I'm considering whether to purchase the KW COILOVER KIT V3, Ohlins, or the Fortune Auto 510. The Ohlins Road and Track Coilovers are priced at $2700, while the KW V3 costs $3000. There's also the option of the KW V3 CLUBSPORT KIT, which is priced at $6000. Currently, I have a KW/MPP coilovers setup on my Tesla and I'm genuinely impressed. It delivers a near-stock feel on the freeway with exceptional rotation. My Type R is primarily used as a weekend car, with plans for track usage once a month. However, I still want to enjoy driving around the city during weekends.

are there any other options?


Does anyone have experience with these coilovers? Which one would you recommend?

Ohlins R&T i had it for 3 years on the FK8 type R with tons of canyon driving and street driving and it is definitely a solid set up

Very comfortable on the streets and the car was planted

Is this more of a track car, daily , or both?

If track setup is what you're looking for, we can do something more like AST, Moton.

Either way, we can get you taken care of with Ohlins, KW, or RSR ;)

I have Öhlins DFVs (this kit specifically) on "track dedicated" spring rates at 11kg/6kg (616lb/336lb) on an ND1 Miata RF primarily for autocross. Even at those spring rates on a lightweight car, it's actually totally fine to drive on shitty Pittsburgh roads in summer/fall (after they fill the huge pot holes) for a couple of hours before being uncomfortable (36 year old here). I've managed two smaller local FTDs/"fastest time of the day" autocrosses on those as well. Made me an Öhlins appreciator and fan.

I ran Ohlins on my E46, they fairly compliant on the street and buttoned down on track. If you want something more serious, consider a two or three way adjustable setup - I had MCS three ways on my E92 and loved them. You could dial them in for all tracks and almost cushy on the street. Moton, JRZ, and AST are also great brands.

I have RSR sitting waiting for install for mine. 90% daily 10% track car.

RSR is very well known in Japan and the US for Lexus vehicles. Its a good coilover, the people at Apexi use their coilovers for their track cars. It will do fine, is it the best for track? No. I would go Ohlin, KW, etc.
