question on the kw v1 for xdrive cars... has anyone gotten it and been disappointed in the performance?

how does it compare to the base and msport suspensions that come stock in the 335i?

has anyone done any back to back testing or have extensive experience with all 3?

I am about to pull the trigger on a set of kw v1 but I want to make sure I will really notice a difference

thanks

incredible difference from stock xi suspension to V1. Installed mine last weekend. A little rough but no floating feeling and corners much tighter

I'm also on V1's and love them. The ride is perfect and very comfortable yet the car handles so much better than it does stock. No longer feels like driving a boat

You'll definitely feel the difference. It's a lot tighter and of course stiffer. Feels a lot more planted. It gets rid of a lot of the sway but not all of it, of course. To fix that you'll need m3 sway bars and struts. I hear m3 bushings help a lot too.

Mine get installed this Sunday.

I hope to have the same reaction as all of the other folks who have had them installed.

Ride is definitely very different.

On the positive side:

Way better handling!! I didn't fully appreciate what everybody meant when they said that the XI "floated". Now the car feels planted to the road and is super responsive. I also like the more aggressive look.

On the negative side:

You really feel the road significantly more! It's not necessarily jarring or rough, but it is going to take some getting used to.

Below are the before and after pics. Sorry for their large size and quality, but I didn't have time to edit them.

Anyone notice a jarringly harsh ride? Are these coilovers adjustable?
