Default Tokico D specs or Feal fixed pearch struts?

It is probably too early to ask for reviews of the Feal fixed pearch struts, but I wonder which of the 2 options to buy.
For $820 for tokico D spec set, I have ridden on them for 70000miles so I know what to expect. No rebuildable is the only downfall of this option.
But in the other hand the Feal FPS sounds promising and perhaps ride better, the fact that they are rebuildable could justify itself in the future. The $280 difference would pay for half a rebuild service.

I have RCE black wagon springs. Whiteline Comp C top mounts, 04 STI BBS.

It would be nice to see damping graphs to have a better idea. I haven't found any.

We have spent many years developing and testing damping profiles that meet the needs of our clients better than our competition. This is why reviews of our dampers and even our revalve service for other dampers are so highly rated.

On paper, I'd got with the Feal FPS. Larger adjustment range, rebuild-able, no history of price-fixing, among other reasons.

The Tokicos are great and cost just a little bit less, but they aren't the only show in town anymore...

You live in LA. Drive your butt to inland empire to Feal. Can't beat local support.
