Yeah, I have a set in my car. They are stiffer than stock suspension even on the softest setting but I have no complaints about them.
Direct swap... and easy enough to fit.

Hi I use the BC V1 too.

here's what I receive

http://micra.org.uk/threads/pollymobiles-rebuild.35251/page-12#post-422090

was direct fit BUT cos it's all fully adjustable it won't be configured out the box for your car (compared to pre-defined fixed suspension kits)

so it's very important to configure the suspensions bumpstop position (to stop tyre striking the arch) and then get it corner balanced.

here's my first corner balance attempt
http://micra.org.uk/threads/pollymobiles-rebuild.35251/page-32#post-470751

2nd attempt corner balancing
http://micra.org.uk/threads/pollymobiles-rebuild.35251/page-101

and this is the latest attempt

Sorry, I should have mentioned too that it is an easy swap but as asdame has said they do need to be set up. A little extra time will go a long way towards keeping your car and suspension in good working order.
