Lol, you can't change a rep you give to somebody?

Also, I have Tein Street Advances. I think they came out in 2012 to replace the Tein Basic.
They are currently $900 from mazdaroadster.com and MSRP is $940

edit: You can change a rep, you just click on the number and delete your thing. You can see all the other reps given and by who.

I want to get some Tein Flex's. They seem like a decent setup for me that isn't too cheap quality-wise but won't break the bank either. Sometime next year hopefully.

I thought Tein Basis replaced Tein Basics.

Edit: yup $720 according to their website

http://www.tein.com/products/street_basis.html
Description:
The Street Basis damper is the evolution of the popular BASIC coilover. Developed to provide a sporty ride feeling and aggressive stance. The shortened shell case design provides optimum damper stroke at lower than standard vehicle ride height. Vehicle ride height is adjustable via the ZT coated threaded sleeve. Updated internal components and external coatings increase durability and product life. Street Basis dampers are great for daily driving and spirited driving for all types of drivers.
Made in Japan under strict quality control standards and developed by highly trained suspension engineers.

Oops. I think Street Advances replaced Super Streets. I don't know. Too many phaggy names to remember.

Man nice find. I like that the ones I really want cost more than my car. The mid field has some decent choices, anythings better than the stock stuff I'm running

I've never understood why someone would pay for tein basis/basic when their's much more bang for your buck else where.

It's phunny how there's only one option for the Vmax coils when FM sells 3 different kinds ranging from $799-$915. also phunny how KW's, and BC's aren't listed. Needs an update but meow I have a bigger range of what I can get for the money.
