KW V3 Coilovers

Found a great deal for a purchased but unused set at 1400 shipped from a seller on craigslist. I've been searching and found a lot of information on KW V1's for my XI, but not much for the V3's. I own a 2008 335xi Coupe. Not planning on tracking the car at all. I usually drive a bit spiritedly though. I am currently running 19's on the car and would like to lower the stance as they raked up the car quite a bit. Can anyone chime in as far as the price and quality of the product goes? I am also located in MN so I would need something to withstand the crazy winters we have here!

1) $1400 for an unused set of KW V3 is a... friggen... awesome... deal
2) the body of KW coilovers r stainless steel so it will be rust free
3) KW is a quality product, u will not be disappointed with KW coilovers, weather it be V1 2 3 etc...

I'm just hoping its not a scam. I found them for sale on craigslist on the other side of the country. I'm taking as much precautions as I can to make sure that I don't get ripped off (plenty of pictures of the product, including today's date written down on a piece of paper next to the product, also using Paypal, etc.) Any other suggestions?

I would tend to be very cautious with that buyer. I have found too many light scams.

Car before drop:

Coilovers:

Car after: AFE intake, LUX angel eyes, and KW V3 coilovers


These coilovers handle like a dream! I still have to play around with a few settings but the car looks and handles like a completely different car. Very happy!

You know the saying "if you look for it, you will find it" ? It sort of applies here too. After I put everything on and set off, I noticed that the car felt very firm and very planted. I also started paying attention to every bump on the road and actually tried to notice how they felt. After an hour or so, it felt like I was back in my stock suspension (comfort wise). I really like this setup so far. Its only the first day though and everything has to settle in so time will tell!
