I think the favorite here is the KWV3. Have not heard anyone put the PSS10 on the F10 here........

But the KWv3 has way too many settings to tinker with.... Or I am just too lazy

You swapped to KW already? Thought you had the H&R, that was quick.

ok, guys i got the H&R and Koni FDS setup on my 1er, it feels like a POS. Now with my F10, I'm thinking if I should get KW3, cos I want to lower it a bit, but I want more comfort. I only have the stock 17s on the 520i, prob won't change the wheels for a long while, unless I get some second hand, no mula.

If you just want more comfort and lowering KW1 should be enough.

Me still waiting for budget for coilovers

Go for at least KWV2, rebound adjustable. So you can set the comfort level.

V1 you can only adjust the height. Good enough but I say a bit stiffer than stock.

The 1er feels stiff already, can't imagine how you would feel driving a 5er now.

On the side note, anyone test drove the new 1er? Mean little car and good bang for your bucks.

tks for the feedback, this forum is great! it's actually my first time joining these groups.

i had E60 (Retired), E87 & F10. I always feel like I had a work out after driving e87 cos the power steering is hopeless...and it's super stiff esp on my 18s and low profiles. i want to get rid of it.

I think KW3 would be the way to go then, I don't want to get KW1 and end up hating it haha. Do you guys know where I can make the purchase?

Do we have a group buy discount for any parts?

Ask Z shop, say you are Mr. Chow's friend.

That's me. Forgot about my referral, you probably pay less without mentioning. I always paid more.

Just google search zillion performance facebook.

Both terms referring to same kit.

KWV2 is worth considering. You don't have bump (compression) adjustment i.e. how hard the coilover compress. Most people with KWV3 don't tweet with this setting so might as well get the V2. For me, I have played around with it a couple of times and I can adjust it myself.
