Just like a lot of the 'instagram models' you see flooding social media these days.

You talking about the shots from above so you only see boobs and the top of the Pear. Or in some cases - teapot.

And a majority of those 25k followers are mid 40's men with less than 100 followers and 1000 posts. Shit's creepy.

If you search alibaba, you would recognise a lot of products from vendors. Heck, half of ebay is now chinese parts, that they just put clever names on like "Black Forest Industries"

Just to be clear - All my stuff is made by hand by me - but when I'm making it I pretend to be a small asian woman, so it all works out in the end.

Instagram - it's the internet with an even shorter attention span - and hookers. Lots and lots of hookers.

This is a fact. It's easy to go into "explore" and find a bunch of "instasloots" who look like 9's, then you come across someone you know and are like "wait, she doesn't even look anything like this."



If you saw the catuned coils and couldn't see that they were just another (more expensive) alibaba coilover, you might want to consider asking a trusted friend or family member to help you with important life decisions.

Not that I'm hating on the chinese coilovers. I'd probably buy a set of BC's for a daily and see how they go.

This is also different if you're sponsored by the retailer and get free stuff from them, as a few people on this forum are(or were?)

You'd be better off doing what I did and buying adjusters, koni adjustable shocks and springs of your preferred rate. Cheaper than BCs? In my case yes, are Konis better than BCs shocks? My money says yes.
