09 E93 on KW Variant 1's? Where can I get KW V1's for cheap?

My understanding is that the E93 is a bit heavier than the E92. Would having KW V1's on an E93 not tighten up the handling very much because of this? How c the KW V1 dampening be on an E93 compared to an E92 on M Sport suspension?

Also, where could I find some KW V1's for cheap?

Thank you =]

Yes the e93 is heavier. Kw v1 non adjustable damping, they are set to what kw thinks is the best. Kw v2 and 3 are adjustable to your liking. All are great choices, but being able to adjust is very nice. Handling you can also add anti sways. So I say go with v2's. but v1 s will be fine as well.

Thanks so much for the input on this. I'm curious how stiff the V1's would be on the E93 because it's heavier than on the E92. Can anyone speak to how stiff the V1's are on the E93 due to the extra weight of the vehicle?

My buddy has the kw v1 on his e93. I've driven the car before and after as well. Car feels a lot more responsive w/ the kw v1. It's a bit stiffner, but not in a bad way. Definitely less bouncy vs the oem setup. Still very comfortable for street driving!
