H&R or KW??



Coilover question fellas. Would you prefer H&R or KW's(Variant 1). This is just mainly for height adjustment. Any shops you guys can recommend?

Also where can you get clear coated bulbs? For signal lights and sidemarkers?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Do you know of anyone who's using Bilstein's right now? Are you looking to buy this from the states or somewhere local?

kw's will go the lowest i believe. pss9's wont go as low but are a more comfortable ride in terms of coils. im looking to get pss9's after the rims come in

just ordered eibach pro kit for the benzo, we will see how it is, was looking at the H&R Sport kit but i think for the car the eibach is good.

I think the PSS is more than enough. do you really need dampning adjustment for $1000 more in the Pss9's? If you don't race?

I have PSS9's and the ride is just like stock suspension. But if I had to choose between KW or H&R ....I would go with H&R. The KW ride is just too harsh.

My suggestion to everyone would be to also consider TC Kline.

All their shocks are custom built Koni for various BMW applications and they use VVS springs.

The same suspension that they run at the track is actually remarkable comfortabl eon the street.

PM me for pricing as I'm their distributor here in canada.

KW is also a great coilover. I beleive the same manufacturer makes them as the Bilsteins. Also it is dampening adjustable so you can adjust the ride to be like stock.


also the TC kline is a great coilover I know of a few people riding on them and they say the craftmansship is remarkable.
