The BR series coilovers use a large 46mm diameter piston in a 53mm diameter damper body to maximise oil capacity. As the damper unit opearates the oil contained within heats up. The viscosity of oil changes as its temperature varies which can lead to changes in the damping characteristics of the unit.
BC Racing only use a very high quality oil with their coilovers but go that extra mile to maximise performance and build their BR range with a large 53mm diameter damper body. This increases the capacity of the unit which increases the volume of oil contained which in turn reduces the peak temperature and so significantly improves damper performance.

Was wanting to do an oil change at home & needed a genuine Honda Hamp filter. Ordered & chose click & collect. Item was in stock and was notified that it was ready to collect within 15mns of the order! Grabbed it same day. Excellent service. Thanks Automek!
Needed a 5W40 engine oil for my Honda Civic EP3 Type R for a pre track service, contacted these guys to see what was in stock & they had several options on the shelf. Went down to the shop for advance and grabbed the Millers. It was really great to get some guidance on what to go for in person.
They gave me free haribos in the package so I rate 10/10
I placed and order with Automek, they kept me updated throughout the process and where very attentive with any questions I had. The part went into the car perfectly with no trouble and works a treat. dw
Quality springs, not too low. Car feels so much tighter and more responsive and the ride is good. I really appreciate the work you carried out.
Got my FN2 sorted last July with the guys here at Automek. I still had standard all round and the top mounts in the rear were squeaking, front were misting and the boot was leaking. Made sense. What a difference it has made, I opted for a FRSU at the same time and added rigid sub frame collars and the car feels brilliant, planted, secure and turns really well. The ride on Scotlands roads is hard enough but there is great control with these coilovers and comfort is improved on standard which is strange given how focused these feel. No track use but great on private roads.
