Very pleased with these. The car stands on the road with good poise and my fillings now stay where they should after binning the old Bilsteins. I don't know if Gaz have recently changed the spec but mine came with bump stops, so there is no need to buy the Mazda style ones as some have suggested, in fact they don't even fit through the smaller diameter first coil of the spring anyway. I did buy some but MX5 parts agreed they are not required and took them back. Also they have 20 settings and not the advertised 40 but there is still plenty of adjustment there. On the lowest stting the car bounces around like a beach ball but setting just 5 on the rear and 6 on the front has made them comparable to the Bilsteins but without the harshness, pot holes and drains are no longer the jolting experience they used to be. Their was a problem with one of the front shocks coming loose when driven for a while and my garage had to extend the thread in the mounting because it just wouldn't tighten enough otherwise, but that could just be a problem with my mounting rather than the shock. Unless you're dead keen and will be racing or something I don't see the point in hight adjustable shocks, these are just right, buy some!
