I agree on the differences in performance on the dampers. Moving from the Koni twin tube design with custom valving(KW is twin tube as well for most of their street and track products) to AST4200 on the 1M, it's like stepping into a different car.

Ohlins will have a more affordable R&T product for the 1M/M3 in April and should have bettter performance than most if not all single adjust coilover systems out there.

Will I pick TTX over KW Comp? Yes.

AST4200 application on the M3 had some issues in the earlier stages, mainly with leaking struts or dampers, but they have been resolved. With the latest internal guide, seals and piston upgrades these already great dampers will be even better.
do you have the April date on good authority? I recall you thought these were gonna be out some time ago. Feels like we're chasing a ghost here. Also what's the expected price point?

Eugene- sorry for the off-topic. Congrats again. I've always been impressed by your car, your taste, and purchase of top-quality only products. I'm envious of your new suspension. Well done mate.
