Thanks! I know and I am not worried as much, because I know you SP guys know the stuff!



I'll be counting you guys for a long time, whether the E92 or my future Fxx 3 series!!

So far, love it.. and I am actually thinking of maybe dropping a little bit more.. but my fiancee says no, considering the hill I do drive daily to/from home..

but back to OP, I still think KWs are pretty good for the money and would recommend KW to anyone and get it installed at SP. lol

PS. you are alex? I thought you use Alex@SP more?

Hey Billy.... don't be worried. I'm going on almost a year with my KW V1's and no problems what so ever. If you ever do have a problem, you know how to get a hold of us. We'll take care of you. Remember... you can never go TOO LOW!! lol

Oh, and i'm Alex... "sexye92" is our other Supreme Power tech Kevin

Ahh, Kevin! I dont think I shoke your hand that day, did I? If not, sorry man. I'm sure we'll get together sometimes in the future.

now i have a reliable shop to go to, its killing me.. i'm posting and searching for more information on the handling upgrades, sways, rear/front strut bars, etc..

I never thought I'd blow money on ride quality instead of cosmetics... lol

but man, tough decisions!

haha don't feel like you did that. Coilovers are vastly superior to just springs and shock upgrades. A combined system that is meant to work in harmony, rather than a pieced together system, always is superior.

Get new ones. Buy some jack stands and a jack. And an impact gun. and save yourself the labor and get to know your car!

VERY happy with mine.


As I'm writing this I'm also knocking on my wooden desk
Its only because of how low your car was and how responsive it was, did I even get these coilovers.

Before purchasing them, I called KW and asked them their warranty. As long as you register them, the original owner, no transfer of ownership, will receive a full warranty. Usually you buy one shock and then they credit you after you return your faulty (leaking) shock.

PSS10 are the ultimate street coilover. You are smart to say that. Everyone here is complaining about noises. KW are race component suspensions. Race cars make noises. Get over it.

Either way, I am very excited to have ordered my KW V1 Coilovers from Simon@RennSpec, under that $1400 price everywhere else.

this unfortunately isnt the case as i just found out today...
i have a leaky v3 coil that im looking to get replaced...just got off the phone with them and they said yes, they will replace, but only after i send my faulty one back. i cant blame them..its still warranty, but more inconvienience to me...i would have preferred to have recieved a shock, replace it ONCE, and send the faulty one back. now i will have to remove the bad shock, and replace both front with oems, leave it at home and reinstall both when they come back.what a way to get ripped at the garage
