KW V3's adjustability?

Is it easy to adjust damping, compressions and rebound settings with the KW V3's?....or is one required to take the car to a shop...

Thanks.

More info please....do you need tools? How long does it take? Is it easy?

I'm trying to figure out if they are worth it over the H&R coilovers that are height adjustable only.

I have the KWv2's and the dampening is REALLY easy to adjust at any time. You can just use any 2mm allen wrench (and one comes with the coilovers)

I haven't messed with the height adjustment yet (my KWv2's didn't come with freaking spanner wrenches!! ), but I think you just take the wheel off and use the spanner wrench to turn the adjustment ring (you should also get the spanner wrenches with the coilovers).

If you want height-adjustable-only KW's, they have them (KWv1's)

I have an XI, so the only coilover options for me are KW V3 or H&R coilovers.
