Will KWv2 be available anytime soon?

I have no need for the extreme adjustability in KWv3 so I am wondering if the V2 will be released for the M3... What about Bilstein and H&R, are they going to release a coilover system? Car has been out for long enough, whats the hold up?

ACS has a setup with a single adjuster. It's suppose to be super nice.

I think the EDC is what's holding them up. I've seen PSS10's for sale on E-bay Europe, but no one seems to have it here. I'm in the same situation as you. I have no need for double adjustable suspension. At this point, I'd be happy with some Koni Yellow's and H&R springs.

Same here, if only H&R would make a lower stanced race version! Otherwise I am waiting on a coilover setup that will allow me to give my car a "healthy" drop. I like it low!

Why would you do that Frankie...if you're gonna drop the coin on a coilover system...the northeast is the IDEAL place to have a dual adjustable system...not single.

But how many people really know how to adjust rebound and bound without screwing up the balance of the suspension?

Exactly.... I really dont know the proper way to set it up, nor do I know of any shops in the area I would trust to set it up. If setup wrong the car would probably handle worst then stock. I would rather trust the techs at KW to setup a street coilover kit with height adjustability! Makes thing easier....
