    Bilsteins are really good. Not sure if this model is the coilover kit but if it is thens its should be a great kit.
    However if you want to spend less, then check out my trading post advert! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif

    I can supply other makes too.

    many friends of me have tried pss9 and then change back springs with H&R ones because of problems(check back spring libres of pss9).
    Also after one year pss9 suspension is very hard even in level 9.
    I am looking for KW varient 3(the only one you can change rebound)

    Not sure if the KW would be better? it's not track tested as the Bilstein B16 PSS9, and they are fully adjustable, and as far as my research shows u can change the rebound.

    Well, the PSS9's single adjustment knob affects both compression and rebound curves.

    KW's Variant 3 has two adjusters, to affect compression and rebound independantly. Sounds like a tuning nightmare to me.


    ELIAS S3, I would love to know more about your friends' disheartening with the PSS9s. What were the issues? Thanks in advance.

    KW corrode after a year. Good freind of mine had these on his VW, you need to keep the thread well lubed up, constatly having to check it. He has now gone for the H+R's.
