From what I've read, the issues don't lie specifically with the V3's, but rather KW as a whole company. They seem to have some quality issues.

Interesting... Maybe I should've stocked a few Bilstein sets as well. Do you have any info on the KWs? If there really is an issue I'd like to bring it up with them.

Oh yea, I know what you're talking about. I think there is a website that generates those pics for you, but I don't remember the name.

I mean, a few hundred dollars isn't a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but it's a bit much to swallow at first.

If you search around, you will see people talking about various problems (e.g., squeaks, parts breaking), but what you read on forums is obviously not representative of the entire company. What we read here will give us a skewed perception.

I'm sure KW is a fine company, especially if they offer lifetime warranties on all of their products.

I have a squeak, but only when I shift hard. Never hear it otherwise... I'm guessing it's a rubber bushing or something. Who knows. I'll never find it.

I know you guys are all M3Heads over here but what do you think about the 1M it's been growing on me recently I would have to wait until someone wanted to sell theirs though because there is no way I could order one the list is probably soooo long. It's such a little beast it looks like a pitbull to me

It does look aggressive. I would like to check it out in person and maybe have a test-drive.

unlike you though Jamie I only typically carry one passenger with me and I dont need a backseat or four doors for a carseat I bet if I got one of these I could tune it to put down a hair over 400 HP and give you M3 guys a run for your money on the track, maybe not Jason. Essentially its the m3 chassis and components only 3" shorter and weighs a little bit less. I didnt really like it at first because its soo similar to my car now but the rarity and uniqueness of it is really starting to get to me

I like the looks of it, but I haven't looked into the car in depth. It's a shame that they didn't use the S65, but that engine is on it's way out and besides, the 1M with an S65 would just destroy the M3, unless it was detuned.

I went to New Century looking to find more info about the M1, was even slightly interested in putting down a deposit until he told me there was a $10k dealer markup. Screw that, I'd rather pickup an M3 at that price.

If it had a S65 in there I'd more than likely get one

but it would dethrone the M3 too much lol

Ryan Amico. Looks like they are doing MSRP.

"Currently, only have two allocated 1M's(both of which are spoken for). I have 5 potential clients on a waiting list, should I receive more allocation. Due to our limited allocation, we are selling them at MSRP.

Ryan Amico"
