Question Vogtland spring, what do u guys think?

yo guys need advice! i got these new adjst. springs and there made in germany. its a two spring set up! you can play with the hight but not the stiffness, it will adjust it self when you drive i.e if u drive hard it will stiffen up and on normal driving it will be soft. i got it for 1200 a promotional price from the company if not -2400 usd- . what do u guys think? and yes i know most of you guys never heard of this yet cause its new. better then all the spring and stuff from japan!

www.vogtland.com <---- look look! under adj springs!

Progressive rate I believe there called. One spring that gives smooth ride during normal driving but when the soft one becomes fully compressed the higher rate spring takes over for agressive driving. These are interesting I want to try them. I am curious about the whole rebound effect but other than that I would expect excellent handling.

Make sure to post a review.

One question was 1200 for just coilover sleves,springs and tophats?. Or is something else included like different struts.

/\They don't actually adjust ( as in multiple incriements of adjustability to suit each individual driver but)(correct me if I am wrong) It is just that their are to different springs on top of one another, They are probaly different colors right?

The stiff one is about 2-3 inches in hight and the soft one is about 5-7 inches long(uncompressed). ( I think).

OOps: I might be wrong They could be progressive rate single springs where one end is stiffer than the other producing the same effect as I wrote above.

So are Eibachs (well, some of them). It's not really a new technology, and they don't adjust. They progressively get stiffer the more they are impacted, or compressed.

Actually, they aren't even progressive. At best they are 2 distinct rates. The soft spring is the short one and it's probably just there to keep some spring tension at full droop so the springs don't move around on their perches. I'm betting they compress completely under the weight of the car so you're really just riding on the stiff spring.

You sure, because I can read that site as I know German and it doesn't say anything about self adjusting etc.
