KW HLS (hydraulic lift system) - Anyone use it?

Came across this on KW's website. It allows you to raise the front end of your car up to 45mm to get up driveways, over speed bumps, etc. There are 2 kits: a universal kit to add onto your existing coilover and another kit that includes an integrated KW coilover.

Wondering if anyone has this and what your experience with it is.

Bringing back from the dead. My wife and I are moving back to the city and our newly purchased condo has a wicked incline to get in and out of the garage. It's tight enough I can't hit it at an angle. Wondering if anyone has this even though it's crazzzy expensive.

I never bought this, but the owner of the shop I go to installed it on his car, and he says it works well.

If I remember correctly the "universal" set-up does not work on our platform......
I would have it otherwise!
