    Yes/No - Tein Flex Z Coilovers

    Thoughts about Tein Flex Z coilovers for NA. The car is generally used on back roads which are not race track or motor way smooth.

    Yes/no? Good/bad? Tophats? I'd like to hear your thought or experiences with these please.

    We're not exactly spoilt for choice in New Zealand.

    Yes/No - Tein Flex Z Coilovers

    Buy the best option in your range. Tein was at the forefront for Miata suspensions last decade, but so many options are available now, they have become mid-tier.

    If it’s just your backroad bomber, stick with the OE tophats.

    I have the Tein EDFCs and they're a blast too mess with and feel great! but like how Jesus said they are good but not top tier.

    I did it. Time will tell, but I didn't have a lot to choose from and the price was right.

    I was debating with these along with the EDFC but I wanted to try the Xidas after reading the reviews. I came across a really good deal and jumped on it. I was lucky to have the budget but I would definitely be looking at the Teins if my budget was a bit lower.

    I need to find someone in socal that'd be willing to let me have a ride along in their NB with Xida at the 550/350 rates or 700/400 rates. Just a DD looking for a nice flat ride.

    There must be at least a handful of people in your area running that exact setup.
