Default Metro Vancouver coilover test ride please!

I'm looking for anyone with quality coilovers on a GR to take me for a short spin - I'd really like to evaluate ride quality before I spend 2k+ on a set

Top priority would be 2011+ hatch with KW V3 or Ohlins R&T (also RCE T2s, TIC SST) with no other mods that would change NVH (bushings, control arms, shifter bushing, sway bars, 19x10s, etc.).

I live over by UBC and am willing to meet most places in Metro Van but the closer the better. I've been known to buy coffee/donuts/beer for favours

Arthur everyone wants to go for a ride in your car!
It should be at the pne every year to get more people hooked on racing.

One ride and they would be hooked

Its on the farther end of what I'm considering but sounds pretty close to an ideal STU suspension... Which may come sooner than later

Unfortunately true.. Gotta keep it driveable for the wife though. Considering I did manage to convince her to get an STI as our only car when she said "lets get a car that can handle kids in a few years".

I'd be willing to give more rides but it's pretty risky every time I take anyone out. Obviously everyone wants to feel the pull in 2nd, 3rd and maybe 4th but after 2nd gear I'm at like 120+ in 3 seconds so quite risky

You would know

Thanks for the offers so far! I've responded to all the offers and it looks like test rides should happen In the next week or so.

Still looking for a KW V3 and Ohlins - let me know if you're interested.
