I was originally going to get KW Variant 3 coilovers for my 650 but I've recently heard some things that sketched me out a little. I spoke to a local company that deals with Euro's and was pitched on getting ACS suspention instead. The good thing about the ACS is that it won't void any part of my warranty, the bad thing is it will cost me $6800.00 installed including tax. The KW's are around $3000.00 + install. Does anybody know how much better the ACS suspention will be...is it worth the cost? From what the guy is telling me the ACS will be a more comfortable ride than the stock suspention (despite the drop) but will obviously improve handling....does that sound right... I can't imagine it getting more comfortable.

don't actually know of anyone who runs ACS suspension, I'd suspect they were outsource their parts for it.

ACS is a huge rip off, you can get a fully custom race setup for that price. Look into either KW, Bilstein, H&R, or Koni/Ground Control

Ya I think the price is rediculous but I have electronic suspention (ARS) in my car and if I get KW, etc... That won't work anymore. The ACS works with the electronic suspention...so I don't know...I don't know what to do...

What's good about ACS stuff, they make autoleveling shocks, but they are crazy expesnive.
Edwin was looking into getting them.
