It’s been just over 2 months since we initially launched Coilovers.co.uk and after a strong September, October was certainly setting itself up to be a good month for us.
Our biggest update of October was the addition of Moton Suspension to our website. One of the most renowned brands of coilovers available on the market, Moton suspension is ideal for motorsport applications and heavy track use where a whole load of adjustability is required. We’re able to offer world-wide shipping and a plethora of finance options too, make sure you check out their range, here.
We’ve shipped out plenty of coilovers over the course of October, with plenty MX5’s topping the list for the most popular application. There’s been an array of lots of weird and wonderful vehicles we’ve sourced coilovers for too. It seems that slowly but surely, we’re becoming the go-to shop for anybody with a car that isn’t well served by specialists. It’s easy to see why as we cater for pretty much every vehicle on the market!
We also teamed up with Tegiwa for a spot of cross-promotion via their weekly mega deals platform. We had a sitewide deal with 5% off all orders which proved to be very popular and also got the brand exposed to a wider audience too!
Although we’ve not been involved in any motorsport during October, we were involved in our resident purchasers K-Swapped Civic EG YouTube feature. Rich talks about where his build began and how he turned it into a fully-fledged track orientated beast with the help of coilovers.co.uk supplied YSR Dynamic Pro Sport suspension!
Brand of the Month
We’re pleased to say that our recent Brand of the Month sale was our most popular yet! You guys were able to take advantage of 5% off MeisterR coilovers and with prices starting from as little as £730, it’s easy to see why it was a popular one.
If you’re unfamiliar with our Brand of the Month sale, this is where we put on a deal focusing on a different brand from the 25th right up until the last calendar day of the month.
Although we won’t have a BOTM for November, we will be having a Black Friday sale. We don’t want to give too much away about the details, but we can tell you that the offers will go live on the morning of the 23rd. If you’re wanting to upgrade your suspension, then this will be the perfect opportunity! Make sure you stay tuned to our socials for more updates and exclusive news.
As you can imagine launching a new brand is pretty hectic, and Coilovers.co.uk is no exception. From our initial launch of the website back on the 21st August to now it’s been non-stop for everybody involved. We’re pleased to report that we’ve had several orders processed through our website, 30 in total at the time of writing this blog – which is no mean feat for a brand that’s only just started out!
Following the launch of our website we also ran our first competition in the form of a £750 voucher giveaway which proved to be very popular with over 1,000 of you engaging with the post. The lucky winner was Dan Webster who spent his voucher on a set of MeisterR GT1 Coilovers for his awesome AP2 Honda S2000.
Coilovers in Motorsport
If you’re not aware, we sponsor a couple of cars in the Tegiwa fleet; the time attack Honda NSX and BMW M4 GT4. It was a busy period for them both with the NSX competing at Cadwell Park and Brands Hatch over the course of the month, picking up 2 out of 3 victories in the respective rounds and no doubt giving our brand some valuable exposure along the way. The NSX is equipped with a set of Yellow Speed Racing 2-way Pro Plus Racing Coilovers, so it’s great to see one of our best-selling brands doing the business out on track too.
Elsewhere, the Coilovers.co.uk sponsored BMW M4 GT4 made its second outing of the season at Donington Park in British GT. Again, this is another great platform for us to be involved in as it’s considered the pinnacle of British motorsport. The M4 performed superbly, putting its factory-equipped Öhlin’s suspension through its paces at the Leicestershire based circuit.
We’ve had not one, but two folks volunteer their cars to run our eye-catching livery. Firstly, Coilovers.co.uk resident purchaser, Rich Tungate put his K-swapped Honda Civic EG forward to sport our colours. Now it’s definitely got the show to match the go, as we saw during his track time earlier in the month as he sent it through hall bends at Cadwell Park.
After a discussion with Matt Duffy about his track project Honda Civic EP3, our livery then made its way onto his Type R too. I’m sure you’ll agree just how good it looks contrasting with the satin silver paintwork, make sure you keep an eye out for it at a track day near you!
Brand of the Month
We also rolled out our initial brand of the month offer during September too. If you’re unfamiliar with BOTM, this is where on the 25th of each month we select a brand of Coilovers that’ll go on offer until the last calendar day of that month. For September, you guys were able to take advantage of 10% off all HSD Coilovers – with prices starting from as little as £580, this was a perfect opportunity to upgrade your suspension. Make sure you keep a look out for October’s brand of the month which’ll go live on the 25th.
We’ve got a couple more brands being added to the website next month in the form of AST and Moton. These premium brands are ideal for heavy track and race applications where a whole load of adjustability is required. Hopefully we’ll have even more orders to deal with next month, and we’ll see if Tein Coilovers are still one of our best-selling brands! If you don’t already, make sure you drop us a like and follow on our social media pages to stay up to date with the latest news and offers.
Aside from tires, your suspension setup is one of the most important elements that’ll affect your handling, comfort and ability to set some decent lap times on the track. It also plays a massive part in improving your cars visual appearance too.
