BMB - define "without much complaining"
I'll rephrase--"no complaining", lol. Keep in mind I bought the car with this setup, although I previously had a stock 05 wagon, so there's that.

Edit: it's also worth noting that the adjustability of either konis or tokicos might be a bit overplayed. The advantage of the adjustability is that you can match the struts to your springs. If you make them too soft or too hard for your specific springs though you'll likely end up with ride comfort issues--sometimes making them stiffer seems to actually improve the ride, not make it worse. Keep in mind also that the tokicos use spec.b style front top hats while konis use lgt/obxt style front top hats.
