Good to hear. The only "bad" thing, I've heard so far in regards to Ohlins in the "Servicing." Though, it is recommended to service all coilovers at a certain point in their life-span, apparently Ohlins puts a bigger stress on it. Though, being the coilover is relatively new to the market, I don't think many guys have done this or even plan on it. More of a preventative measure so to speak?

Excellent! Good to know this, are you running Ohlin R&T + Sways?

I had CS, adjusted them many many many times.
So I've heard. It might be a different story for the 3-way Clubsport, which I'm not reading good things about in regards to daily driving/bump compliance, but the 2-way seem to be strictly geared towards track performance, with slack in daily ride comfort. Both great setups, I'm sure I will not be disappointed in either, just need to identify your needs, and cars primary function!
