Yes. Entitlement runs deeper and deeper into humanity with each passing year as nature's natural selection laws are replaced by our "equal rights" attempts. Thereby littering on the gene pool, breeding helplessness and the expectation that other people will do their work for them.

Agreed. KW says they only drop about 1.5-2 inches, but it's really more like a 3-4 inch drop with our floaty XI suspension from the factory.

Did not know there were others Coilovers out there for our XI beside H&R and KW.

Anyway, i paid $1340 for my KW v1, installed for 5 days now. Loving it.
I lowered all the way to 1/2" left which most likely will be all the way down when i get my stud conversion come in to spacer the wheels out 20mm....Update pic will come then.

yes, the HPA/TCK kits have been out for some time now and IMHO are far superior to the KW's and H&R's in every way. i'm not knocking on your choice, just offering my experience and insight. you got a great deal on the v1's. for the money, they can't be beat.

Coils are great on my xi except with the ne winters and my laziness, I didn't clean the collars much in the winter.

So my coils are now coilless but they still ride fantastic.

lol you guys are funny - the OP didn't even come back here. Maybe he is computer illiterate or doesn't know how to use the search function on the forums - shrugs - he is new let's cut him a little slack.

anyway - OP I see at least 50% of the threads on the XI discussion to be about suspension for the XI...I started a thread JUST asking users what coilovers they used found here:

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=679275

doyle made an excellent thread on XI suspension that you should read first found here:

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=458209

do everyone a favor and learn how to search first then ask question if you don't want to be flamed.

9 out of 10 times you are not asking a unique question. It's probably already been answered 5 times then 20 more times by people who don't research like you.

with that said.......:
