Ohlins does not warn against OEM top mounts and they probably don't include top mounts because of the wide variety of situations and to keep costs down. With top hats these coils would be over $3000.

The instructions are not great, I learned this mostly by trial and error, which is why I'm passing this all to you.
instructions are not great, and the product is $3K. Nice

I paid $2700, could have gotten $2400 but was unwilling to wait 6 month for stock to return.
yeah... EQTs coils are considered on the expensive side at like $1500 lol, and you’re talking 1.6-1.7X the price of those. I do understand that when buying the best of the best, the delta in price is not equivalent to the delta in performance.That premium goes to R&D, QA, and Customer Service. But things like bad instructions just rub me the wrong way lol.

I paid $ 2790. I don’t mind paying for quality. I’ll see if I can secure some Vorhslag plates later in the week. I’m also going to see if I can contact Ohlins customer support about those spacers you posted.

There is a considerable difference in shock performance at that price point, with the DFV valve and inverted design. You can't get those features with any cheaper shock.

That's worth the price difference.

Totally agree. I figured that you’re buying into a lot more R&D for the incremental cost. I plan to keep this car for a while, so I rather purchase things one time. I already made the mistake of going with springs to start, and not waiting to purchase coilovers. Again lesson learned... the hard way.
