Bilstein B12 kit and PSS9

I am planning to lower my car with either B12 or PSS9. I know PSS9 is coilover and has height and stiffness adjustable.

Is there anyone tried both? If I choose the softest setting on the PSS9, is it still very stiff and harsh?

I wanted the PSS9 but I am afriad that it will be too hard since our roads here are quite bad

Thanks.

I am also interested in the Bilstein PSS9 kit...is there anyone on this forum that distribute them? pm please!

What is the comparison between the PSS9s and the KW V2s? i know that the KW V2s have a lower drop but what about the ride? Do either come with a camber kit or anything? Thanks!

PSS9s are much more expensive than KW V2s I think and of course PSS9s are adjustable so you have a lot of options.

The softest setting is supposed to be the same as a stock 3 (non sports)
At least that's what my local tuning shop told me

Yea the PSS9 at their softest settings are not hard at all, I would say its equal to, or maybee slightly softer then the factory sports suspension.

We dont have any official vendors on the board yet, however Mike************ and Cdesign seem to both be active on the forums, maybee one of them could get it for you ? Try PMing them.

If not, try a place called Supreme Power Parts, they are really good and i've had top notch experiences with them Be aware that the Bilstein B12 kit is hard to impossible to get in the US since its not really marketed here, but the PSS9s should be easily gotten
