ein has released the FLEX Z Coilovers for the 2017+ Tesla Model 3! Tein FLEX Z inherits all the features and quality of STREET FLEX but the adoption of the new platform allows its price to be set at a low range. FLEX Z, of course, maintains the long-favored "Made in Yokohama" quality. Considering the use of larger tires/wheels and the lowered ride height, FLEX Z uses a twin-tube system, in pursuit of ride comfort on streets. Also, low gas pressure keeps friction low. Its smooth stroke movement makes it possible to follow rough and bumpy road surfaces quite well, offering a supple ride at low speed and a stable ride at high speed. Full-length ride height adjustment system, used for FLEX Z, enables adjustment of ride height by adjusting the case length, without changing the damper stroke length and/or spring pre-load. FLEX Z has an ever-popular 16-level damping force adjustment (comp./rebound together) feature with the use of a needle valve. By turning the adjustment knob, damping force (stiffness) is adjusted linearly step by step, to change the ride and handling of the car to suit the driver's needs/preferences.

Features:

  • Full-Length Ride Height Adjustment with Little or No Change in Ride Quality
  • Twin-Tube Structure For Low Resiliency & Securing Sufficient Stroke
  • 16-level Linear Damping Force Adjustment System
  • Complete Kit with Upper Mount
  • Complete Suspension Kit of 4 Shock Absorbers & 4 Springs
Application: 2017+ Tesla Model 3 RWD

Part Number:



VSGP2-C1AS3, Tein 2017+ Tesla Model 3 RWD Flex Z Coilovers

Nothing about Tein has ever coincided with quality. All historical testing of valving has been hugely varied and disappointing that Ive seen over the years (20+ish in the aftermarket world). And they also tend to have very high failure rates and low rebuild-ability.

If you want something cheaper, I'd pick BC over Tein just because they can often be rebuilt or modified.

Information only.

This is a price point product like those ABC/XYZ/Yellow/Red coilovers from China. Performance might be better though.

Running MCS 2WNR with Swift Springs myself. Never really into the mass produced off of the shelf solution.

I am making an assumption that, even though this first post reads somewhat like an advertisement, it is "person to person" sharing and thus allowed on TMC vs a business attempting to post products without being a vendor.

Things that would make this look less like person to person sharing would be "PM me for XXX" statements (as an example).

Interesting, other players in the mods space are starting to enter the fray which is great. I just hope this wasn't tuned on JDM roads...

I never used Tein stuff much, more of a Cusco and Whiteline.
