I don't think there is anyone who has used both brands. Usually they get one and stick with it.

I've used KW V3 on my 2 previous vehicles (AUDI A4 and MK5 golf GTI).

Comfort wise, both are comparable. Probably not a fair comparison since they are on different vehicles and I haven't tested the PSS10 on the limits.

Main differences I feel is that
1) V3 has separate adjustments for both compression and rebound, making it slightly more complicated to setup for the average user like myself. PSS10 has one knob so compression and rebound are adjusted at the same time.

2) PSS10 adjustment knob is numbered which makes it easier to see what setting u are at. For the V3 you need to use an Allen key and turn it to the softest and then count the clicks from there.

3) V3 seems to be able to lower more than the PSS10 so if you are after the slammed look then probably V3 is the better choice.

Unfortunately I don't have any pics at the moment but I'll try to get some as soon as possible.

Lastly, I bought my PSS10 from BAAN VELGEN. It might be worthwhile getting a quote from them before pulling the trigger. The price including FedEx shipping might surprise you.

thnx for the explanation buddy.. Ive used Kw v3 on my e90 320i,KW v2 on E93 335i turbo and both rides is really good..no complain.
Now Iam helping my younger brother building his e90 M3...My cous who owned E46 M3 with PSS10 told me i should get the bilstein instead of the KW...his other car C63 Black series with OEM KW coilover set up.He told me the ride is stiff.


should i get for my little broter KW v3 instead the PSS10?is all E90/E92 M3 equipped with EDC??
