Have a think about what you will save using them over buying a kit from myself or Ben and decide if the money saving is worth it

They are on both my wagons..a 745T and my 02 V70. I autocross my V70 and they are phenominal. The 745 came alive after I installed them

Speak for yourself.

Based on specs alone, the rear springs are waaaay too stiff compared to the front.

And that's just one issue with their products. But most will think because it's stiff, low and handles better than stock that it's the best available. The same people who think that stiff shocks are better simply because they feel stiff, not because of their ability to dampen.

Might be. In non-Volvo circles they seem to be fairly highly regarded as an entry-level option.

BC Racing and Megan are the same company, evidently.
