I can only find a couple of references to them on here using the search function and they weren't much help
    FK's will knock

    APs don't. Orranje will do you a great deal on them for not a lot more on the FKs you'll wish you never fitted.

    I ran FK Konigsports on my VR6 with no issues at all, but they just haven't got the Mini coils right.

    I pm'd Rich a while back and got a good price off him, but the FK's were still quite a bit cheaper. I wasn't sure if they'd be worth a shot, it Seems strange how they are ok for everything but mini's. Has anyone on here tried them, or are they 'guilty by association' with AK Street's? Just asking by the way, decision made for AP's

    Don't be so Hobo on the coils, be better to save up some cash & get a decent set second hand than a shit set brand new.

    This is what happens when you veer away from MT's tried and tested.. https://www.minitorque.com/forum/f715...buy-him-33913/

    I've been running APs for nearly 18 months now, they're so comfortable and eat up the bumps in the roads fantastically well - for me, and many others, they are the absolute cheapest you can get away with if you want lows with no hassle.

    If you want a bit more handling for your money, then you really need to be looking at KW V2s or Meisters.

    Depending on the events of the next month or so, my APs may be on the market.

    This is what happens when you get sold faulty parts.

    Don't talk rubbish.

    Comfy and low is good enough for me as I rarely horse it in anything other than a straight line. I hear what you're saying about straying away from the path and like I said earlier will be going for AP's
