So it seems like on this thread TC Kline is preferred over V1's. How about compared to V3's? Same thing?

Edit: Searched and found this

I guess that pretty much sums it up

^ An effective summary. By that post, TC Kline wins on price point by a long shot. **********s has KW V3s at $2695 and TC Klines are $1795. It seems like TC Kline coilovers are the best priced best functioning high quality coilover suspension for xi. With other options being available and not as "top shelf".

I have a dream... that if we get enough people together... we could get these TC Kline "top shelf" coilovers for a few hundred dollars less than if we all just kind of do our own thing and get them whenever we get around to it...

I am all about getting as much value for my dollar as possible. Group buying is a very easy way to take something higher quality and higher cost, and drive the cost down some. Its a very simple concept, just requires organization from the buyer end of the exchange. I might just be the only person who gets excited about getting TC Klines for say 1550 instead of 1795... or even lower, who knows.

I'd be interested in taking part in a group buy for the TC Klines

If you guys would, post on my other thread made specifically for the potential TC Kline coilovers buy stating that youre in. I'll add you all to the list and present it this week to TC Kline and put the hard sale on

After going through this thread, it looks like we already have 10 unless I've misunderstood someone.

I was originally thinking KW V1 for affordability but I trust everyones judgement in here so I'm ok with just about any quality product. I've been looking to lower for a while so count me in!

Had a quick thought that if enough people were to legitimately participate in sharing with the community their tentative modification plans, that we could find enough people to try out a few group buys, possibly leading to more excitement, more interest, more research, larger sample size of people trying out all of the aftermarket options, etc etc etc.

Things don't always catch as I hope... But its worth a shot
I like the ride and handling of my stock '08 335xi. It is a great compromise between ride and handling. I have owned and modded many cars, including race cars, and have come to appreciate a good compromise. For me, a street car will never be a track car and a track car will never be a street car. I like my good ride, reasonable performance and quiet interior.
