im selling my Brand new never opened box of KW V1 for e90/e92 for 1,100.00 shipped anywhere in the US. Let me know. The brands you mentioned are generic. KW has a good rep with BMW as solid coilovers.

Can't really feel the difference when you adjust them like I can with my other shocks... I mean they ride fine and all but the adjustments was a disappointment.

BC's is the best choice here. They are well priced (great value) for a rebuildable body, rebound/compression dampening adjust, camber plates, spring rate options, the shock assembly lowers as a whole for maximum shock travel. They have great reviews from real owners. It's time to get off the over priced st/kw bandwagon.
