KW v1 vs oem sport suspension

Would it be a noticable upgrade as far as handling goes?

How much stiffer are the KW v1 compare to the oem sport suspension ?

Car is a 09 335xi sedan with sport pack.

Thanks !

First and foremost no such thing as sport suspension for xi, they're all the same. Now that that's said and done the V1's are a huge improvement. They're a very comfortable ride considering they're coils and they make the car handle much better. They get rid of a lot of that boaty feeling from the xdrive and make it feel much more planted at all speeds. In terms of comfort, everyone i've taken for a ride is surprised when I tell them the car is on coils. The V1's handle bumps perfectly imo

1100-1200 for KW V1. around 200-300 for install. Then another 100 or so for an alignment which is needed.
