KW does not use a linear rate constant ID coilover type spring so there is no comparison.

KW V2(matches rebound adjustments on the Koni Sport Yellows) retails at $1895, so let's say you can get them at ~$1500, you will have to spend another $672 for the conversion kit(not counting machine work). That makes the KW V2 true coilover kit at ~$2172. The Koni SA coilover kit is only $1537 by comaprison with your choice of spring rates. Try ordering the KW V2 with different spring rates, NOT possible.

If you are already running KW V2 or 3 and is interested in the KW coilover conversion kit, have a look at the followring thread for more info:

For those already have Koni Sport Yellows on their cars, this is an excellent add on and conversion.
