KW V1ís Vs. D2 Racing RS

Looking for a little insight from anyone who has used either set up. Iím looking to get coilovers for my car, and I'm not sure what one I want to go with. The thing that is most appealing to me about the D2ís is that they come with camber plates and have adjustable dampner and rebound settings. So looking for what you thought about ride comfort, ease of adjustability, and highest and lowest ride heights. Thanks for any feed back!

Hey,

I couldn't tell you about the D2 Racing RS kits since I have no first hand experience with it but I could tell you about the KW V2's. Thus far its been probably my most popular KW system sold across the board to most makes and models.

As far as driving experience it will not disappoint! Very responsive, and comfortable. For the most part regarding adjustability the majority of my customers set it once and never touch it again. once you find the perfect setting you wouldn't need to change it often.

Kevin

I'm running D2's and am very happy with them. Combined with my Hotchkis sways its awesome. They are only rebound adjustable, your description is a little confusing. They ride great and I have them only 10 from full soft. I haven't even fully stiffened them yet but I might tonight to see. They respond very well and the car feels very firm. Highway trips are smooth but it's not as soft and cushy as the stock shocks on Bav Springs. It's not harsh at all, just firm all around, I think it feels much better.

They also handle very well. My friend with an M3 running full ground control coils and sways complimented them. Height wise I still have a lot to play with. I can jack it up to Xi status or take it so low I can't move. The camber plates are a nice touch as well for the price, however I feel they aren't designed as well as the Ground Controls are. The D2 plates are more general for the application. They do the job though and I'm fully adjustable up front. They're easy to adjust, no complaints in that department, like any other coilover. If you want to dump the front then you have to get shorter endlinks. I can't go too much lower up front due to my swaybar and endlink hitting the control arm.
