    I forgot to take an before picture but I mean it was obviously really high with stock suspension. This is no adjustments just straight out of the box and have tons of flexibility to drop even more. +1 on BCs

    I was thinking to go to coilovers this year ...I would love feedback on the 3 below. I saw that someone is using ISC (basic ?) and hates and ISC N1 and loves them ...

    1. ISC N1 Street or Race valving (selling for $1500 CDN tax in )
    2. Track One (Is https://trackoneengineering.com/ As far as i can see these made by K Tune & K2 coilovers too) $1245.83 CDN tax in
    3. XYZ Racing (Taiwan designed and made from street to all types of racing ) They start at $1300 cdn +ship+duty+tax
    4. Silvers Neosilver (taiwan ) $1752 CDN tax in
    4. Goodspeed MonoMaxx (these are taiwan made others are china made) $1380 tax in CDN
    5. Neo MotorSport Type AA These are all aluminum (taiwan/china components i think?) $1712 CDN tax in

    I would love the KSport Kontrol 2 way but they are to much $$

    Geez Boy....I know the KW V3 rock !! but cannot see myself paying $3K+ new for these....Any one selling some on here ?

    Im leaning towards the TRACK One ... Confirmed they are made by K-Tuned . Get those now and wait to source a used set of KW V3 and get them rebuilt.

    I think i found what can be a real competitor to the KW V3 and that is Fortune Auto (FA) are usa built. https://www.fortune-auto.ca/fortune-...323-protg-bj5w
    The FA are rebuild able and can be rebuilt to 2 way or 3 way ... But presently no coilovers for the Mazda 3 platform... Huge But ..they are still in prototype phase and available soon!! I waiting.

    Just an FYI :

    For those considering the KW V3 . Last year KW was offering rebate to purchases made between March 1- May 31. https://www.bimmerworld.com/KW_Suspe...ebate_Form.pdf
    $350 USD ($464 CDN) i presume.

    Ok ...this is starting to be like a bad nitemare or a crazy ex i can t let go for some reason ...lol Every time i start reading more reviews about coilovers i find another interesting performing and priced coilover.
    So my list starting to grow change again & again.....
    Update:

    1. KW V3 ... if they have a $350 usd rebate like last year ..i want these. (Germany, fully rebuildable)
    2. Fortune Auto 500 series ??$2011 cdn tax in delivered...will be available in proto testing stage (USA assembled & tested, rebuild able)
    3. Ceika about $2000 cdn tax delivered (UK company ..Custom made to your specs , Taiwan , rebuildable)
    4. XYZ $1881 cdn tax in delivered (51.5 mm monotube) very popular in Australia racing
    5. WAT suspensions $2200 cdn tax in delivered (57 mm monotube)

    4&5 is dealing directly with the manufacturer

    Thanks TM3 for letting me vent and be my therapist ... I feel much better now

    For those interested in Fortune Auto Coilovers

    " testing 2010-2013 MazdaSpeed 3 suspension currently. If everything works out it should be in production in about a month. "

    and Should fit all Mazda 3 BL.

    UPDATE :

    Sorry Ami ...not going with the KW V3. Maybe i will consider a 2 way or 3 way after i get bored with this set.
    I found a nice deal and I went with a set of the Neo Motorsport Type AA (ultra light) https://www.neo-motorsport.com/colle...12305634852943. Assembled in Ontario. They list at $1728cdn on their website...got them on Tdot for $1426.

    Once i get the coilovers on I will sell my Corksport lowering springs and dampeners.
    Springs : https://corksport.com/corksport-mazd...pring-set.html
    Dampeners : https://corksport.com/corksport-mazd...nd-shocks.html
    Let me know if interested.

    The KW's are great but way overkill for the vast majority of applications.
    I think you made a good choice. Looking forward to seeing them on the car.
