Are these KW V3s?

Hi guys,

I'm planning on picking up a set of coilovers tomorrow which will be my first set of V3s. I've only had KW V1s so I'm not sure whether there is any difference between the two visually...

From what I've seen in vendor photos, all of the struts on the KW V3 seem to be chrome/aluminum so I'm a bit skeptical on these ones I'm picking up tomorrow since two of them are black.

not sure how to tell visually but look up the part numbers on the struts should tell you which ones they are

KW V3s have the dial on the bottom so no they are not. Prob V2 or V1

Edit: It looks like the e90 xi models don't have the dial on the bottom. Their should be a spot for adjustment at the bottom though, look for that. The pics look like it may be there but hard to tell.

V1: no adjustment
V2: top adjustment
V3: top and bottom adjustment
