- My model of MX-5 is: NA 1.6
- I’m based near: Seaford
- I’m looking for technical help or recommendations on: BC Racing BR Coilovers
Does anyone else run these on their NA? I had mine fitted by Wheels In Motion many years ago now (I’ve had the car since 2007). I’ve adjusted the ride height a few times as although it looked quite aggressive, it was just too low and speed bumps and potholes were my absolute enemy and to be avoided. I have the ride height set much better now and scrapes seem to be a thing of the past. The car was originally set up for fast road so was also set very firm so although it took corners like it was on rails, I felt every bump through my bottom and as I’m not getting any younger I’ve now set the shocks front and rear on their softest settings. I took the car out solo and then with my misses in the passenger seat and although it was noticeably softer, it still felt planted. I think if I was doing track days then I could tinker with the settings (with the help of an expert) to really dial it in but for road use, I’m going to see how I get on with the current soft settings. I guess I was really interested in any other owners comments/thoughts on these shocks, what settings you have, likes and dislikes. It’s personal choice at the end of the day I know.
