Ohlins TTX vs. KW Comp

Well guys i recently got a set of Ohlins from our friends at AE Performance.

Front:


REAR:


ALL 4 shocks:



I will weigh the KWs once they are off my car.

I got lucky! because this set was only used for 10 Laps off a 335 E92 race car but the 335 had over heating issues so AE dropped the idea then refinished the entire system to an M3 spec by Ohlins so I got it for $9300 usd

TTX kits starts at $7500 for 2-way, $8500 for 3-way and $9500 for 4-way. You will still need to source your own camber plates, springs and height adjusters, which will set you back another $1000 or so.
