Which coilovers?

Hey guys,
I have a 07 328xi that will be running 189's on a staggered setup, I am looking at two different coilovers and would appreciate any feedback or possible other options, I am deciding between KW V1's or H&R Street?
Thanks!

ST's or V1's

Highly recommend Alan at **********s to provide a technical perspective that will meet your needs and provide a price that may surprise you.

I dont drive my car in winter thus went with the ST coilovers, **********s is a authorized seller for KW which makes any disputes a lot easier to handle.

good luck...

Thanks for the advice guys, I think I am going to go with the KW V1's. I would love to look at those ST's but it looks like they are not built for the XI...

I will update once I have it done!

Really>>?? well y KW would do that..I have no idea...

personally I think whenever u go aftermarket dampers u need to have adjustements..the KW1 u will be at the mercy of whatever the damper is preset and u wont able to fine tune the ride to ur liking and road conditions

KWv3 is dual adjustable compression and rebound..so a bit overkill there unless ur tracking..single rebound adjustement is so important to have IMO..

I would go w a diff setup if faced w this.
