Review for MeisterR GT1 Coilovers for Mazda MX5 (NA) 89-97
The very best option for Mk1's?
Having driven many cars over the years I can honestly say the GT1’s have transformed a good handling car into a brilliantly handling car. It now soaks up uneven road surfaces far beyond my expectations. Being multi-adjustable ensures outstanding control whether it’s fast road, touring or Track-days/Auto solos. Also being able to adjust the units quickly without having scrabble around underneath the car is a definite bonus and ensures pin sharp turn-in. We all know there are cheaper units out there but pound for pound GT1’s are in a class of their own.

Review for MeisterR GT1 Coilovers for Nissan Skyline R33 GTR (BCNR33) 93-98
The best option for the Skyline GTR

Fitted the MeisterR GT1’s to my R33 GTR after having them on my S15. At Santa Pod I setup the rear on full soft to let the rear end drop before launching, this really helped lower my 60ft times. This was great advice from the guys at MeisterR. I also tested the suspension out at Brands Hatch too, and it definitely helped increase confidence on track compared to my last setup. Overall the GT1 is more of a high-end road suspension, that works on track, so it was a good balance, between road compliance and for the occasional track day.

Review of MeisterR GT1 Coilovers for Nissan Silvia (S15) 99-02

Huge improvement in handling and controlWe installed MeisterR GT1’s on my S15. It made a huge improvement on the suspension that came with the car from Japan. First thing I noticed was it was so much more compliant with UK roads. I think in Japan their roads are smoother and better maintained, nothing like the roads in the UK which are full of pot holes and bits of tarmac, stuck on bits of tarmac. The car is a bit of a show car, but I have thrown on a set of drift wheels and had some fun at Lydden Hill, Brands Hatch and Santa Pod. It was really easy to control and transition between drifts. I’m no pro at drifting, but it definitely helped my wannabe drifting skills improve. I gave the keys to a pro-drifter and he took it out and said its one of best setup S15’s he drove, which was a great compliment to the car and the suspension on it.

Review of MeisterR ZetaCRD Coilovers for Mazda MX5 (NA) 89-97

Supple and compliant ride for a coilover with excellent adjustability. I couldn’t believe how well my car handles poor road surfaces – a real surprise! Definitely the best modification I have done to my Eunos mk1 turbo. Simple to adjust for track days and for perfect ride height. The springs can be pre-loaded too for track days but are fine unloaded for fast road driving or just cruising. Definitely worth saving up for. I’d highly recommend them to any MX5/Eunos owner.

Excellent set of Shocks, I have had 2 previous Mk1 mx5’s and they had aftermarket shocks, but nothing like the feel of these, while they may be a little soft for the track they are spot on for the road soaking up the bumps and keeping the car on the road, The car feels very responsive and i had no idea an change in shocks could make such a big difference. brilliant value for money dont hesitate!

Review of MeisterR Sportive Coilovers – 89-05 Mazda Miata / MX-5 (NA / NB)

Have just had a set fitted to my 1990 Eunos that had an aftermarket set up fitted early in its life. Yhese gave a firm but very harsh ride. On the other hand, my “Sportives” whilst still on the firm side are far more responsive to road conditions whilst still making you feel really planted to the tarmac. My steering feels more direct and the car is cornering as if it was on rails. These units look good, are well engineered and perform up to expectations.

Review for MeisterR ZetaCRD Coilovers for Toyota MR-S (ZZW30) 99-07
Review of MeisterR ZetaCRD

I purchased these for my 2ZZ-ge swapped MR2 Roadster. I fitted them myself and have used them on several trackdays, a dozen laps of the Nurburgring (Including a new personal best) and for general road driving, around 6,000 miles in total. They’re paired up with TRD strut braces and poly bushes, as well as as stiffer front ARB. They offer good damping compliance, meaning that although stiffly sprung they are not harsh for every day use. On track they are fantastic, giving predictable controlled handling. They’ll be heading back to the Nurburgring later this year!

Review for MeisterR ZetaCRD Coilovers for Mazda MX-5 (NC) 05-14
Review of MeisterR ZetaCRD

I have just installed on my 08 NC. Gorgeous design and materials, appr. 2/3’s weight of the B6 Bilsteins (which are extremely balanced for this car anyway). Springs are linear and much stiffer. That gives more traction (with the lowering though) and speed in corners, but quicker and more sudden oversteer reactions. Of course depending on the levels and ratio of lowering f-r. Starting with 16/24 clicks had bumping effect in front especially at downslope of a killer speedbump and at the back in humpy curve. So I went to 32/32 full soft and the car got more controllable. N. b. most of our roads worse than hell. So these COs should be hard enough for you to feel sporty and have speed up on track. To sum up it’s well worth spending, but should be considered for wobbly, pot-holey roads of godforsaken places.
