    Hi rob I have bc coilovers like a lot of lads do they are great in the corners with less roll when hardened up but I would say the set up was too low on bumpy roads So am getting it raised a bit. turned to soft itís still a harsh enough ride. As not as smooth as kyb set up was in CiarŠn wrx car itís way smoother on road than mine and has car dropped if itís looks you on for was in cars over the years with coilovers you know there there alright but I like what I have as itís not a daily I think hassen put up something before on meister r that he has gave it thumbs up

    Iím using Tein mono sport on my wide track.
    Just perfect for me over fast road and track.

    Donít knock the fillings out of your teeth and there are lots of adjustments that
    Can be made to suit.
    im not here for a long time,im here for a good time colin mcrae. r.i.p.

    Highly recommend Meister R Zeta CRD+ on the Subarus if you want a setup that will give you the required drop, be comfortable for daily driving and still can he stiffened up when it's required for hoons. 36 settings of stiffness to suit and it can be tailored to your liking and car setup. I got mine installed last July and drove my car from Dublin to London the next day. No issues and that was with a family of 2 kids and herself. If you're around Dublin and want to have a look at it and experience it first hand, give me a pm and we could try to meet up. I am based in Tallaght during the week for work and could nip out at lunchtime.

    Hope that helps :)

    Also, look up what I wrote recently re suspension setups in another post as it might be helpful to get an idea what can be achieved.

    No worries man. We're all here a friendly helpful bunch as we know the dilema it is to buy parts and make it work for your needs. I personally don't have experience with the HSD but they are a good brand from what I gather. Re Meister R, they give you 5% discount with the promo code from Scoobynet and have group buys from time to time, which makes it a very attractive package.

    And I think experiencing a coil/suspension setup in a car will clear up any reservations you have more than just reading about others experiences. If you can get a drive in any car, try to and see how it feels for yourself. If you're around Dublin, give me a shout :)

    Bc coilovers I find are the best if set up properly . Wagon dec on here does a great setup I had new tein coilovers before and I would touch them way too hard for Irish roads . Spend most of the time bouncing in the car not fun

    You can spec a spring rate with bc as close to factory as possible and you will have comfort.

    They also have more travel on the dampers which is nice .

    Bought it from Meister R website and at the time there was a 20% discount for a group buy on Scoobynet. Got very lucky and they been excellent so far. I think it would be well suited to your new wagon. Plus, be class to have mine and yours side by side with them on.
