How long does KW V2 coilovers last?

I'm looking to purchase a used set and I'm wondering how long it can last. I'm sure it depends on driving style and conditions, but on average how long?

I tried searching but I must have used wrong keywords bc I didn't find anything.

Thanks!

They are designed to outlast the life of the car, you shouldn't have problems with a used set so long as they were not abused.

The warranty is non transferable so it only applies to the original purchaser.
