I just got hooked up with the V1s by Andy @ Sonic MS. Hit them up for the best deals on these bad boys. They are KW authorised. Mine should be coming in a week and half or so...

Well both of them will be a major upgrade - the V3 will give you the ability to tune it to your own specification instead of the preset one that KW felt you should go with.

They are just being released you think an inventory clearance is already coming on them?

I'm getting pretty pumped for your in-depth review, tuna.

No in depth review as the day after i got them put on, I got hit in the rear and pushed into the car in front of me while stopped. So instead of a nice and shiny car wash, I got some extras during this trip and will be needing two new bumpers and a hood.

I can say it achieved what i wanted, the look of an "i". For the hour I had it, I also think the car had a bit more of a bounce than stock. Supposedly, I'm getting the car back in two weeks or so and will give you some feedback once I drive it more.

Are the v1's setup pretty close to the v3 recommended settings?

thanks, now on top of that state farm is trying to put some used parts on my car to get it fixed even though it's sitting at a BMW dealership. something about company policy.

Humtek - i'm not sure what the preferred setting is for the v3 but from what i understand, there's not much to the v1 besides setting the ride height. havent really driven it, but for the hour i did on the highway (and i'm no track star), it felt much more planted to the ground and i felt like i had more control of the vehicle. i always cringed when i'd go around the corner and hit a bump before...maybe a question for KW?
