kW HAS kit vs KW V3 on a 2015 CP

Hi

I know that this dilemma have been brought up before, but I simply can figure out what to go after.

Having a CP makes the decision even harder.

I have narrowed down as I see it what the benefits and cons are for each path, please feel free to help me make the right decision,

KW HAS benefits:
  • Keep the electronic ajustment
  • Much cheaper
  • I like the ride of the cp, just want it lower

KW HAS downsides:
  • Maybe not low enough
  • Harder to install
  • compromising the stock coilovers
  • degraded ride kvality

KW V3 BENEFITS:
  • Superb handeling and comfort
  • Easier to sell again and reinstalling the oem dampers when selling the car
  • Endless ajustments(good and bad)
  • Should be easier to install

KW V3 downsides:
  • Loosing the electronic ajustment
  • You are now playing with the electronics of the car also, and could be a problem if something goes wrong with the electronics of the car.
  • Expensiv
  • I like the cp suspension as it is, just not low enough
  • My wife will kill me

What would you do ?

KW HAS!

i have a cp as well and that is current setup. With K.W HAS your steering wheel feels a bit stiffer as compared to the stock set up on the stock 343 rims. I run cup 2 .. 265 fronts and 305 rears... they filled out the gaps pretty nicely.

I ordered the the Kw has setup, mps4s in r305- f265, and 10mm spacers for the front only to compensate for the wider tires in the back,

Oh I also order a set of 601m competition wheels, I have a feeling that it's going to look epic 😎
