Depends on your budget. Meisters seem the best, fully adjustable with plenty of R&D.

If you have plenty of cash to splash KW v3

I would rate those 3 as follows:

1) Meister R (superior flexibilty/adjustability, better compliance on the softer settings for fast road use and rough roads)

2) Yellowspeed (You wouldn't go wrong with them but they do not offer the same comfort as the Meisters on softer side)

3) Tein (A hard riding coilover which I would not recommend for anything other than track work)

There are better kits out there if you spend a fortune but the Meisters are a cut above the other two in your list. You really do get a lot for your money.

I took the yellowspeed club performanc 2 way and I tested them on the Mugello's Circuit nad behaved really well.
great feeling and response and on the road, setting them on all soft, are also comfortable enough.

Cheers for the response guys, Meisters it is then, I appreciate the rundown of the 3 ISWiiREI initially I was going for tein heard lots of comments been rough on ride.

My budget is low and don't want to pay for just the name.

BC are supposed to be very good but may need a custom spring rate as I heard they can be harsh on the road but great on track.
