I just got KW V3 and they feel great, I was also looking at KSPORT half the cost but heard good thing about KW and couldn't find too much on KSPORT . The car is totally different feels like sports car now. Currently running +1 compression, and stock rebound. Damping feels perfect, so I will leave it for now get used to it then make a little stiffer and see how I like it.

Only issue is that I didn't want to lower too much and I am at max setting and it lowered 45mm the manual said 20mm but actually 45. I really only wanted to lower 20mm. But it handles so well I may just need to drive around the bumps.

I prefer Bilstein, but getting hold of a set up is damn near impossible until sometime next year. If you can find a set, you're a blessed man.

Because the Bilstein's were unavailable the guys at Turner suggested the KW V2's. The front struts are polished Stainless Steel, rear shocks are painted (powder coat?) black and the springs bright yellow. And they do work. Better then the stock Msport suspension. Probably the point I like the most, I didn't need spring compressors to assemble the front struts.

The only problem I had with the KW's .... I got 2 left front struts even though one was labeled R. Sent pictures to TMS and KW shipped the correct strut that afternoon.


No matter how fast I go there's always someone slower in front of me.

You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him Jet Ski.
