KW V1 or V2

Hello,

I need some advice on which coilover to get. I have narrowed it down to KW Variant. Now, I am debating on whether we will need the dampening adjustments or not.

The issue is that we have the sport pack w/ 20's and when we take an incline + turn, it rubs. Almost as if the stock set up is too soft and allows the body to roll from side to side.

My questions is this: Would the V1 (with its stock non adjustable dampening) be enough to help eliminate the body roll?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

personnaly i find that with the price difference, the V2 is better.

you never know, perhaps one day you do not support anymore the lowering, you would find your car too hard to drive (or too soft !?). Perhaps "madam" will wait for a child, the day when you drive her to the hospital you better have a soft ride, ...

i mean, you never know what happens in life, so you better take all the benefits of coilovers. not only lowering at the 1/1000 of an inch, but also the hardness of softness you would like ...

that's my opinion


Remmib : i mean the same, you're right

Both of you guys make sense. Didn't even think of sway bars. Thanks for the input.

I think V3 is overkill for the family sedan, but if price is near V2, would def. be interested. Thanks!
