Merci. I like you, too.

Hmm, I like the V2's, but I don't know if I will need the added features. I need to do more research on the V1's.
Well, where I live over here in SoCal, i don't need to worry about rust lol

and 5 years IMO is enough... as I personally wouldn't keep any car for more than 3-4 years, unless that car would become a weekend/track car.

the koni combo is better than V1s IMO and from my experience.

Good luck on your research

In my opinion I wouldn't worry about the rust especially since you live in socal. Back when I had a 3 year lease on a 335, I had the STs and when I took them off at the end of my lease, there was no rust problems whatsoever.

As far as the warranty goes, I guess if you plan on keeping your car for more than 5 years, you would want to consider the longer warranty on the KWs but for me, I doubt I'll keep my car for over 5 years...except my e30.

As persion suggested, if possible I would save up and get the V2s even if you don't plan on tracking your car since you can control the dampening.

ST coilovers are what, $1000? SupremePower has the V1's for $1200 so the difference isn't bad, but then again, the V2's are only slightly more than the V1's.

Damn all of you!

STs should be around 9 and V1s im not sure but I know KW raised their prices not too long ago? I'm not sure what the prices are on those now. Just get the KW Clubsports and call it a day

Haha, why stop at the Clubsports? I might as well go with the 3-Way Adjustible Competition coilovers

You shouldn't go to college just for money.. you are doing it wrong in my opinion.
I don't care if you are a millionaire, you won't know what you're missing until you try (this isn't rerferring to just college)
Networking FTMFW! During my many years in and out of college I've met so many different people in so many different fields. It's great! I got to live in the Philippines for a year, study, learned more about my roots, go clubbing everywhere, etc... Experiences i'll never forget.

I was looking through your time in Japan... lucky bastid!

It is apparently supposed to be one of the best places in the world to train. I absolutely love it. I started training when I was 5, but stopped from about 18-22 when I was at military college.

They had their own form of training, but it was pretty basic martial arts. I should be there mon-thu every day of the week...for well until there is nothing else to learn there.

After looking into KW a bit more, it appears as if there are definitely some quality issues. So my search continues... I'm going to look into Tein, specifically the SS-P.

I've been looking at the HP Autowerk site and they have some pretty fancy suspension stuff. Something like this would be great, but the price tag is too much for me, right now...

What's the issue with the KW V3s? I just purchased a few sets to stock. Did I miss something?
