Update: D2 did not think it was necessary to secure to the coilover top.  They recommended just "friction fit", glue, or for me to invent a solution.  I'm ordering a set from another vendor.



If these fit the "legion elite" coilovers I have and am planning to put in the other car, I'll tack them on somehow.
Thanks for being the guinee pig on these, I'm sure alot of people could benefit from your trial and error.

Ya maybe another update.  Turned out they do make one that locks onto the struts like the tien.  Nobody in the us stocks them and the distributor says D2 requires a minimum order of 50

Neither godspeed nor bc's adapters will work.
Godspeed and BC's adapters are for all intents and purposes identical.

I think I'll end up just using the D2 ones and some adhesive to hold them into the adjuster

Maybe also to note, Tien doesn't actually sell their adapters yet they still are in r&d somehow.

Maybe I can make my own adapters for the d2 ones with my 3d printer if i get around to replacing the controller board

Not ideal, but i ended up using the D2 extender.  A friend of mine had d2 coilovers for his Miata he didn't install yet and if the starion coilovers are the same... it looks like there are supposed to be rubber hex retainers in the coilovers adjusters holes.  I don't have these.  He gave me his and that is what retains this in place and the regular adjusters.  His coilovers aren't installed yet and were recently ordered.  So he's going to get d2 to send replacements for his.  So the d2 ones will work if you have these rubber things.

The only issue is the length is super long.  I'll have to cut it down a bit to be a reasonable length.  I'll do that on a cooler day when. I feel like pulling my trunk mounted battery to get  the side trim out.  Anyways here's a pic

Ya, there is supposed to be a hex shaped rubber plug with a hole in the bottom to retain the adjusters.  At least they came on the Miata coilovers
