ST coilovers made by KW?

I have heard that ST coilovers are the same as KW V2s. can anyone confirm this. They are cheaper than KWs. Why go with KW if STs are the same product. Also, any vendors carrying STs for E90? Thanks!

Well, yes and no lol

They are the same as a KW V1 - not a V2. They are cheaper because they use galvanized steel rather then stainless steel. So what does that mean - it means if you live in southern states like S.Cali, Florida, Texas etc. You'll be fine as long as you aren't in the snow, because salt water eats up on the galvanized steel and makes it corrode.

Yup hit us up if you need a quote, we should have some more in very soon.
