    Difference in price an quality

    Hi

    About the third post ive made on coilovers but dont want to rush into buying them. . . was just looking for a few opinions. After recent posts on kw coils have been brought up. the cheapest prices i can find all in are as below. . .

    Weitecs - Ł589
    KW - Ł640

    Can afford damping adjustment unless i went with v-maxx. Is the extra Ł50 worth it or are these two products very similar.

    KW are stainless thats where the extra money is going, they won't require maintenance in the winter, and won't rust.

    Fitting is probably gonna run Ł150-Ł200 depending on where you get it done, but worry about that in a few weeks don't substitute on the quality of product to take in fitting costs
