With EDFC (Electronic Damping Force Controller) series installed, damping force can be controlled from the cockpit with ease. Stepping motors attached in place of adjustment knobs control the damping force quickly and accurately.
Use of EDFC turns 16-level adjustment into finer 32-level or 64-level adjustment mode (64-level only available with EDFC ACTIVE / EDFC ACTIVE PRO), to provide the optimum performance by fully utilising the damping force adjustable range drastically widened by the use of "ADVANCE Needle"

Is that the price including the EDFC? If not, then how much is the full system?

Price Quoted above is for the coilovers, EDFC's are optional extras
Installation relatively straight forward, but time consuming routing to all 4 corners and fixing the controllers in sensible and accessible locations. Look great when fitted right. Will add some pictures later.
EDFC ACTIVE PRO with GPS Kit £750
EDFC ACTIVE PRO without GPS Kit £690
EDFC ACTIVE with GPS Kit £530
EDFC ACTIVE without GPS Kit £470
EDFC II £245

Each time I’ve had the chance, either the weather been bad or something come up and stole my cleared day!

The car now got no suspension on it, but this time I’ve good reasons to why I’m not fitting it yet which your see soon in my thread.

Goobie, do you need an adaptor for the tein motors to fit on the top of the shocks due to the engine struts on the R3? Believe the struts block the tops.

That is a good question, looking at it, the motors are very slim and where they go is very reset in the top hat ie deep dish so to speak. I think all I’d need todo is cut a sandwich slot on the edge of the brace mount foot for the wire to past?

The brace is non structural anyway, so popping a slot or drilling a hole for passing wires shouldn’t be a problem. Il have to whip em out and stick one on to confirm.

Mine are the MonoSports coilovers, so not sure if the top fixing points differ to the Flex z’s?, they appear to look the same.

They was my first purchase from Clive, in fact, I bought my whole kit above from him, great bloke.
