Hahaha you beat me to the announcement!

In production guys in Germany - pretty excited for you guys -we heard everyone's requests for a cheaper alternative then the H&R and KW finally listened. Took awhile right but at least they listened to us on it.

Ooo just in time. I was looking at getting the KWv3 and then these come out. What is an ETA to when they'll be in stock? Is it worth to pay a little extra and get the v3?

Eh? these are $600 cheaper then the V3 - doesn't matter what sale anyone puts it at, keep in mind a v1 can go into sale as well. We've match and offer unbeatable prices as well that's what we can do as your Authorized Kw Dealer http://www.kw-suspension.com/en/60_D..._USA/index.php

Forum members will continue to get special offers on these just have to contact us. The V1's are hear for those who want a great coilover without braking the bank.

Should be in about 2-3 weeks here in our stock. Is it worth it, thats up to you - Do I think so yes, the adjustments are amazing but thats not for everyone. So the V1 offers a preset dampening.

KW's thoughts on it were that they really only wanted the V3 out there cause they want you guys to experience the best suspension out there bar none - but they caved into customer demands eventually. I think it's a win-win for all customers to have the options.

The H&R coilovers are still cheaper. by like $200-$250. This is good stuff though gives us some good options.

Not really when you take into consideration shipping, or forum member prices

Then again its one product versus the other - and the KW spanks the H&R on all tests and reviews.

Hopefully with them releasing the the v1 that the v2 will follow shortly after, maybe not.

I have a week or so till my check comes in, so I have time to think about it. I'm still swaying towards the v3. For a few extra hundred dollars I get fully adjustable compared to just height.

umm you can adjust how soft you want the rebound to be with v3. Where v1 is set by KW and can not be adjusted for ride comfort.

That is correct there are so many adjustment setups you can do with the V3 it's ridiculous how many settings you can do on it.
