does anyone on here have kw coilovers???
im looking at getting some. there the only brand i can get here in australia. cant get avo here. yes i could get them posted, but that probley would cost too much.

so kw have 2 types. variant 1 and variant 2.
variant 1 have a set damping rate
variant 2 have adjustable damping


V1 cost abt $2000 (abt £970)
V2 cost abt $2700 (abt £1300)

i guess id go for the V1 cause i wouldnt really need to have to change the damping rate. unless i was taking it on a race track on the weekends??

Contact Banshee (www.bansheemotorsport.co.uk) as I know they have posted stuff all over the world. They have got a map in there shop showing all the different countries they have posted stuff to. I dont know what the postage will be or if it will be prohibitive, but give them a call or an e-mail and see what they say.

I have KW V1's and they're awesome. Far above the standard suspension in terms of handling, you'll never look back once you have them on the car.

I wouldn't order them from Banshee to be honest. They took 6 weeks to deliver mine and that was in this country. Its not just that one order either, when I ordered the Gaz coilovers from Banshee after 4 weeks they hadn't even placed the order with Gaz, yet took my money straight away. Sorely disappointed with their service for 'specialist' parts to be frank.

I have V2s on my ZR, very pleased with the product but be warned...KWs customer service is appalling...I have never before had to deal with such a bunch of amateurs. As it happened their consolation came in the form of a free upgrade from V1s to V2s so not all bad!
