What is this craze for coilovers !A lot of people are fitting coilovers on their cars these days, and it's not just UP's
As I understand it you can alter the ride height and stiffen the suspension for better roadholding, I don't think it alters the load capacity of the car......what else does it give you ?
Is it an improvement on the standard suspension setup if you are not worried about ride height changes or stiffer suspensions.

Why are they so popular ?

Definitely an aesthetics thing, however, it does improve handing no end, if you buy a decent set of course. Cheap coilovers will ruin your handling.
