Just hitting up this message board for a few quick questions. Gottalovethexi-I know you have KW and we have discussed H&R and KW before in this board, but I figured I would ask you this. What made you decide to get KW coilovers? Interauto is having a great deal on KW's now and I am thinking of jumping on it.

Anyone with KW's and H&R's (these are the only two I know that make coilovers for our cars thus far), please chime in and let me know what you love/hate about your coilovers.

Anyone familiar with coilovers, answer another question that I have. Do coilovers need to be replaced due to wear at all like shocks?

Thanks for the help.

I love my KW V1 coils. They're smooth, but you do feel bumps and whatnot. And you do need to take it slow over speed bumps. And I mean slow. But I wouldn't trade them for anything else. And yes, I am dropped on 19's and they're not on the lowest setting either

Thanks for the feedback. I am currently on BBS RK's (17's) and want to decrease the gap (I am on H&R sport springs). The RK's will eventually be my track tires as I would like to upgrade to 18's or even 19's in the near future, so that's why I like the height adjustability of the coilovers.

Next question for those KW owners. Why did you choose V1/V2? The V3's may be overkill but want to know if they are worth it. If you chose V1, would you rather go up? If you had V2, would you rather go up or down?

Thanks!

Ummm I bet if I ever auto-x my car (might or might not happen) I'd want to upgrade because all I can do is adjust height no damper or anything. But for daily driving I'm cool with the V1's. And they are the cheaper of the bunch at $1K and change versus like $3k for V3's

Yeah no kidding. InterAuto is having a sale on all levels of the KW coilovers and the V3's are only $500 more than the V1's. So right now I am trying to justify the extra cost.

Post before and after especially on the height of the car if you make your car lower.
