Coilovers - H&R vs. KW??

Anyone have any suggestions, recommendations?
Other brands?

Also, if anyone has a picture of a 330 convert with coilovers and the standard 17" wheels, I'd love to see it.

Thanks.

What exactly gives one coilover suspension superiority over the other? Construction? Overall ride quality? Ease of height/dampening/rebound adjustment? Give us a clue.

Thank, John. I'm very familiar with the "search" function and use it quite a bit. I was curious to know what your personal take on it was since you've tried and tested a few different suspension set-ups. My research pretty much leads me to believe that both H&R and KW manufacture superior coilover suspension systems.
