This is great to see! I'm still on the fence, but I've been salivating over MPP's Comforts. Originally I was planning on upgrading to Tesla's 20's while keeping the 18's for road trips, but now that I have a new job with a ridiculous commute (126 miles a day.. ugh) I need to once again consider efficiency, ride quality, and replacement costs. Might just go with the 19's instead, but need to make a decision soon.I've been running the comfort coilovers for about a week now and absolutely love them. Ride feels similar to the stock set up but far less jarring when hitting bumps and variations in the road. What I was really after was a sportier stance without sacrificing ride quality. The comfort coilovers hit the mark!
So is the ride better than oem, or just the same but lower. I couldn't care less about lowering, but would gladly pay for a better ride.
Did you use a local shop or DIY?
I’m having mine installed today. I had the coilovers delivered earlier this month but the shop I’m going to recommended getting the camber and toe arms. The arms just got delivered on Monday.
Looking forward to your review!I’m having mine installed today. I had the coilovers delivered earlier this month but the shop I’m going to recommended getting the camber and toe arms. The arms just got delivered on Monday.
The comfort coilovers will be replacing UP moderates that were installed a little over a month ago and are too harsh with the stock bump stops.
Not sure if anyone has installed these yet, but coilovers like that should have very few downsides other than cost. Only other one i can think of is that they will probably require a rebuild after a few years which would cost $500-1000 dollars to have done, but seems worth it to me.
The MPP coilovers come with a 5 year warranty for the original owner.
The warranty is KW's manufacturer warranty, you can check out details on their website! Us heavy track day guys may need to rebuild them but it's unlikely that street users will need to.
I've been running the MP Comfort Coilovers with toe and camber arms for about 6 days. I haven't been able to take a long trip with them yet, but I have purposely driven over rough roads that would rattle some teeth and give backaches to my wife when using the UP moderate springs it replaced. It's night and day, the comfort coilovers just soak up rough roads like they weren't even there. Think of riding over potholes as a slight massage vs being kicked in the butt. I find myself sometimes driving faster than normal because it's so smooth and comfortable. It's the same feeling you get when you drive fast because you don't hear the engine, you drive faster because you don't feel the bumps. I have a family of five and with everyone in the car, the UP springs were just painful over bumps, but it was bearable with one person in the car. With the MP comfort coilovers, five passengers isn't an issue.
This is more luxury. My wife says the ride is a lot softer than when it was stock. First thing I noticed was a little bit more body roll than with the UP moderates. MP told me that's because it has more travel vs the UP springs which were riding on the bump stops under pressure. I have the height on the coilovers a little higher than the manual recommneded, but will probably bring it down another 1/2" after it settles in a month. It was set higher because the car was scraping at a couple places with the UP moderates so I wanted to raise it just a bit. So far no scrapes, but the height is aesthetically a little too high for my taste on a lowered car. Great thing about the coilovers is that the height is adjustable.
After comparing the ride to my wife's Lexus SUV, I find it similar in the way it softens bumps, maybe even a little smoother and it doesn't exhibit nearly as much body roll as a SUV does.
I don't plan to track my car as I only have a LRWD. If I had dual or performance, I'd probably have gone with the sport coilovers to tune the dampers and take it to the track. Since I use this as a daily driver and do a ton of road trips, the comfort coilovers feel like the perfect balance of comfort and performance for my needs. My family concurs.
Install was done by Griffin Motorwerke in Berkeley, CA.
