Tempted to go koni sport yellows with the HR sport springs...then again all you read about is KW.

Anyone run H&R Sports with Koni Sports??? Looking for lowered, stiff but nothing ultra crazy. Daily driver.

Lot of folks here think the H&R sports are too stiff, do a search. I had a bad expereince on another car with them so went with the Eibach pro-kits with Koni yellows, others have gone with Bilstein sports and Eibachs and report good results. Good for DD and not harsh at all, vastly better than OEM and not too expensive.

Can you get a ride with anyone running koni and HR sports to test it out?

One of many things I like about my KW V1's is that you can set them to the exact height you want. A shock/spring combo will obviously only give you one height. With some of the shock/spring combos the reverse rack would still ever so slightly be present and I knew that would always bug me. (At least thats the case with the e92, maybe not as much with an e90.) Also, I haven't checked the prices lately, but when I was deciding between coils or shocks/springs there wasn't that much of a difference. Although if you already have the springs that's a different story.

I just traded in my 335I and had the KW V3's on it. That car drove on rails, and handled unbelievably!
They are pricey, but IMO well worth it!

I think I'm going to go with the KW for adjustability and the simple consensus of great reviews.

One set of brand new H&R sport springs coming up on the block!

Thanks for the feedback. I also like the resale value the KW's seem to hold. Impressive.

Just installed my KW V1's yesterday. Night and day difference with stock suspension. Looks great... handles even greater!
