I actually have KW CS and I can affirm that it actually does come with progressive springs for the rears (KW2003) . Least for the E46 non-M kit I have.

I documented some of the findings here.

But in regards to the theme of this thread, yes, linear springs are so much better. I switched to Hyperco all corners. At some pt I may need to Swift them out.
This is Tyler actually.

Thanks for the info on the KW's. I wasn't aware that they were still running progressive springs on their top of the line coilover offering. Hmm. That link had some good info in it.

The linear springs make such a difference as you've felt/seen. Let me know if you ever want to make the jump from Hyperco to Swift. There are performance gains to be had from the testing we have seen from indpendent research.
