I'm not sure how kw's will handle our roads and winter? I'm a dad with kids.. No time to tinker with coilovers.. Or remove and send for rebuilds.. So I'd maybe prefer a solid strut and lower spring.. Bilstein b12 setup maybe.

I bought them.. There in a box next to me.. Just haven't installed them yet..!

Definitely better than having the coils seize in winter lol friend of mine did the opposite... Came from bilstein and H&R spring and switched to KWs for height adjustability.

As a DD, spring and shock are definitely better

Hi Jezzy

I have a 2008 328xiT, but like you, I'm leaning towards a set of H&R and Bilsteins.

What are the part numbers for the KWs?

Thanks,

Hi,

Don't go H&R springs.. I heard they ride horribly.. do the Eibach's. You'll thank me.

I'll get you the part number tonight... but I noticed your in NS.. I won't ship at the moment!

thanks

Hey Jonluc, are you running your V1's in the winter? Or stored away for winter?

I went all out with KW's.. for sure its overkill for me as I'll set the height once, and won't touch it again. I'm just wondering what they're like after spring time pot holes, can they take a beating?

Hey Jezzy,

It is my first winter with the KWs. I used TEIN coils on my '12 civic SI during winter. Didnt have any problem. Of course, when there is a huge snowstorm, I use my beater

But definitely Eibach and bilstein is the best combo! GLWS with very good price !

Hi Jezzy

I couldn't find a listing for Eibach springs for my 2008 328xiT.

Did you get a chance to look at the part number for KWs?

Thanks,

Jay

I noticed that too.. This is what i found.

Eibach Pro Kit: (Made for i, most people buy these for xi)
2092.140
1.0" F (actually a little more drop since the xi weighs more)
0.8" R

Eibach Pro Kit: (made for e93 but will work on e90 xi)
2099.140
1.2" F
0.6" R

Read up on some xi wagon threads and see what others are doing. I forgot what the part number from eibach was..

Read the last post

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...=561342&page=2

And this thread

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=651358

Another good xi thread
