What coilover options are available for GTiR's in 2021?

So far I've have MANY conversations with MANY manufactures, but many, don't, can't or won't help with making coilovers for GTiR's!

Plus some of the the quotes I've had for a new set of coilovers are absurd (Proflex wanted £7k+vat)

Barring BC Racing Coilovers (or Misters D2 etc) are their any companies left who make coilovers for GTiR's that are worth a look at?

My car will be mainly tracked, however I'm also looking for options for softer road springs so that if I fancy I can run around the roads without needing a new spine!

I'd rather run coilovers than shocks and springs (track reasons)

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Back a while Intrax were making a set for around 1.5k. The Meister I have have been replaced and they are supposed to be much better

Before I ended up with Intrax 4 ways I was just going to buy a set of their RSA dampers, think they were around £2k.

I spoke to the guys at Exe Tc too as they are just over the road from where I work and they wanted around £4k for a set of basic single way adjustable dampers.

The problem for most companies is they will just be a one off so expensive, there just aren't many people about willing to spend that much on suspension. If the market was there and they knew they could sell 20-30 sets it might be different!

I see on their website they are offering at GT1 coilover kit for around £2k, but I'm very dubious if they are any good?
I've always had Meister down as a cheap product really and not something track worthy?
They seem to market their range as built in the UK, I can't seem to see much on their background history as a company, just feedback from chav's wanting to "slam" their cars!

I don't really know much about Intrax, its the 1st time I've heard of them. Have you been happy with their ride and compliance?

Your right about most companies, they are just not interested in making 1/2 kits and its getting frustrating to find companies will to make a mid range, quality product and able to have them serviced too!

I have the original zeta R, they are equivalent of the regular cheap types. I have just done a back to back test versus good condition standard suspension on lowering springs and the coilovers are better.

The newer version are the CRD ones and they are supposed to be a lot better than mine.

I think they have 2 distinct products cheap and decent. How decent I am not sure
