Red face KW V1 or V2?

So I tried searching for "v1" "KW V1" and it tells me that it is too short.

I want to drop my car and currently have a set of H&R Sports springs that I was planning on putting on, but after researching a little further found that it is too hard on the stock sports shocks. I would like the car to be pretty stiff (close to but a little softer than E46 M3) and ride about as low as the H&R Sports Springs do. Will the KW V1's accomplish this? Or do I need to go up to a V2.

Thanks for any info!

P.S. I am running 20" wheels, and am having my fenders rolled. Don't know if that makes any difference, but there it is.

Try using KWV1 and KWV2 for your search. Every KW thread usually includes a 'KWV2' (no spaces). The KW threads stay pretty active so usually a search isn't needed. Most of the info including drop heights gets repeated aswell. You'll find a lot of info in the mixed KW vs others type threads.

Both provide the same drop height adjustments. So to answer your question yes both will be able to provide you with the ability to adjust as you like the ride height and provide you with a firm sport suspension, the v2 will allow you to change how stiff or how soft you want it, while the v1 is a preset setting. Let me know if you have any questions, will be glad to help you out with your order, we got a bunch more in stock

If you go every weekend to a racecourt, buy the V2, if not, buy the V1. for street it's enough.

I prefer the availability of having dampening adjustment, so I would get the V2s, if it fits your budget. It is only a hundred or two more than the V1s. It is great, even if you prefer to do only a few driving events a year, or whatever reason.

Let me know if you are interested in a set or if you have any other questions.

Sounds like Variant 1 should work fine for you.
