I upgraded from EDC to KW Clubsports. I've never driven on regular v3, and I know that CS is more track oriented than V3. If you like your normal settings of EDC and you find Sport too harsh, I wouldnt recommend going with aftermarket coilovers. I run my CS on 9 bump for the street ( 3 clicks softer than recommended 6) and 9/11 F/R Rebound. Ride is harsher than Sport EDC, but more importantly CS are louder than going over road imperfections.

The car handles and looks better, CS will allow to have proper track alignment especially for softer side wall tires out there, but you will pay the price of ride comfort.

I wouldnt run CS for DD.

Interesting. Someone else with KW CS likened the ride to being between normal and sport (slightly closer to sport). I've seen a lot of people say that the ride is around the sport setting, actually.

I used to have my EDC set on Sport 90 percent of the time. I like it firm
CS even on 9 bump is stiffer and louder over road cracks. On recommended 6 bump it will be a lot stiffer. The shittier the road, the more you feel the difference.

I miss EDC, but I love sharp handling, I wish my wife was more understanding

Wouldn't spring rates have something to do with the comfort and aren't they customizable? Enquiring minds want to know

The damping is adjustable, not the spring rates. Just like EDC works, but with different (stiffer) springs.
