      Hello Mk3 Polak,

      Solo Werks is a new brand, so it is no surprise that you may not of heard of them yet.

      As for the goodness, other than the general lowering specs and price the main points we like are:

      • USA Tech support and Service
      • 3 Year Warranty vs 1-2 on most others
      • Gold Zinc Plating with a longer corrosion resistance than the silver zinc used on most other kits at this price point.

      Thanks,
      Glen @ AMI

      Hello GrahamRam,

      AMI has been back in business for just over a year now

      To quote our site "In August of 2010, DV8 Automotive Group is proud to launch the newly acquired and re-designed AMImotorsports.com, now known simply as AMI."

      New owners, new site, and a mix of the existing and new suppliers/brands.

      AMI no longer has a physical shop as in the past, it is a 100% online enterprise for the time being, but we are working on a few plans to have tuning centers in our Vancouver and California locations.

      Thanks,
      Glen @ AMI

      Unfortunately our Barrie location is no longer, and all of our coilovers are shipping out of our California warehouse directly to you.

      The total for you is $575+HST = $649.75 all in (no extra charges for duties/brokerage etc... as we take care of all that!)

      The shipping is via FedEx and is a 2 day express service we have negotiated with FedEx

      The warranty is 3 years, with pretty standard terms and conditions like many of the other brands. Solo should have this on their website shortly.

      Thanks

      I've got to ask, why should someone pick these over lets say, RaceLand Ultimo's?
      Raceland's are just around $500 cdn shipped, why should I go with these over them? I need to be sold on these more.

      Technical aside - as dyno graphs/spring rates etc.. seem to be dismissed by most as personal preference, two factors that would personally steer me towards the Solo Werks kit vs Raceland are:

      • 3 Year Warranty vs 1-2 on most others
      • Gold Zinc Plating with a longer corrosion resistance than the black powder coating that is used on the Ultimos - which wears off quickly on the threads (the main place you need a coating!) as it does not take kindly to the aluminum perch being threaded up and down over it....

      The sale price is was extended by Solo Werks until December 31, 2011.

      As for the ride, it is my honest opinion that the ride quality is like an OEM sport kit, with the ability to go much lower.

      The owner of install car we did a full write up on a month ago has also done his review that you can check out here Solo Werks Review by Darktuner

      Let us know if you have any additional questions!

      The Anti Corrosion Spray and mounts are available separately, or not at all

      If you have new or fairly new mounts then another set are not necessary, although they make for an easier install, so you don't have to remove the other ones from your factory units, and you can just install them in and out as assemblies!

      I do like that review! I definitely do not want any kind of "cut spring" bounce going on with my car.

      Hopefully there is a sale closer to the spring for these!

      We have asked that question as well. Solo Werks has told us it is in the product planning, but will most likely not be released until mid Summer.

      Thanks again to everyone who ordered over the weekend!

      Thanks,

      That zinc coating looks identical to what comes on FK powertech coils. Which does not hold up well at all!

      Id take my chances with powder coated threads and a tube of wheel bearing grease.

      Sorry to thumbsdown your product, but this is the vortex after all..

      LOL, if I could not take the heat, I would not be in the kitchen!

      Not to throw out too many phrases on top of the kitchen one, but you cant judge a book by its cover.

      If you were to make that visual comparison of the Powertechs vs the Solos, you would also have to include ST, Vogtland and H&R - all who use the Gold Zinc plating and are also much more expensive - none of which cover corrosion under their warranty terms.

      The key on the Solo's, the ST, Vogtland and H&R kits is the thickness of the coating in comparison to the others. The thicker and golder the coating, the longer the metal can resist the salt - but no matter what there is always a breaking point.

      In the end it is my experience that with coilovers it all comes down to maintenance, both preventative and during the winter season.

      For many it is not practical to do anything but drive their vehicles in the winter - cleaning may not be an option at all. For those individuals, a stainless steel based coilover like KW is the way to go - or a winter only vehicle
