Eibach Pro Street vs. KW v1 ???

I need some input.

I have a 2011 e90 with sport suspension. Just passed 100k and use this car as a daily driver. Looking at upgrading my suspension. I have narrowed my option to between Eibach Pro Street Coilovers or KW v1 Coilovers. The Eibach's are a little cheaper by a few hundred dollars.

Question: Which way should I go?

I hear all kinds of feedback about KW's but not very much about the Eibach's. Or should I look at the BMW M-Sport Suspension upgrade or something else altogether?

Appreciate any input to help me make this decision!

KW is better and has lifetime warranty. If I were you I'd save a little more and get the V2 for more adjustability.

Or KW street comfort for better handling AND ride comfort than V2

the Eibach Pro-Street S coilovers use KW dampers, and Eibach makes the springs for the KW V1/V2 coilovers, though they say their kit uses slightly different springs than what they provide for KW.

So either way, you are getting very similar coilover of equal quality. But KW's lifetime warranty for the original buyer is very nice to have.

KW Street Comfort! Linear springs and matching dampers with lifetime warranty...plus other factors.

I went thru this a few months back. Couldn't decide between H&R coilovers of the KW V1s. I ended up getting the V1s... Which I do like, but if I did it again, I'd prob get the H&Rs.
I have the H&R coilovers on my last e92 and IMO they performed better compared to the V1s in turns.
