Default Megan Racing or K-Sport Coilovers? On a budget and for AutoX

Still confused after 2 days of constant thread reading and reviews. Megan reviews seem to be good but really haven't seen anything from anyone that is really using them for AutoX. Now the K-Sports I heard are relabeled D2's and a friend runs those here in Houston.

Feedback from you guys would be appreciated. I think you can get the Megans for $899 and K-Sports for around $1000-$1100. Daily driving comfort really doesn't matter as car in NOT a daily and mainly will be used for AutoX, track days and such.

Ksports are lower than that, PM the vendor on here selling them for a price shipped.

I've been on the Megan Racing kit for a little over a week and I must say they are very nicely put together. The spring rates are very well matched and the valving is just right. Bumps in the road feel fairly firm in the car, but there is no bounce afterwards. For the price, they cannot be beaten.

Yeah, don't forget about the Helix DNAs! These are awesome coilovers for the price ($999 shipped) and compare favorably to the Tein Flex. We tested these coilovers for months in every conceivable condition and they surprised us with their versatility and high build quality. I think there are other members on this board auto-xing on them. Here's som reviews:
