    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 - £589
    KW - £640

    Can afford damping adjustment unless i went with v-maxx. Is the extra £50 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 £150-£200 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

    Do the fitting yourself ? save on fitting and then buy the best ones?

    that's impressive, Midland VW charged me £200 for the privilege, including a laser 4 wheel alignment.
