not really over rated since most of what they do drop in spares
but people give funny looks about replacing parts without upgrading at the same time

Don't worry user, fortunately I'll never be retarded enough to install Taiwanese scrap metal with supposed 100-way adjustability as a suspension component.

I think KW's are _overpriced_, which is different from overrated.

BC's are absolutely fine for a daily
just don't go megan/godspeed/truhart/etc
anything under $1k isn't really worth it

What about Ohlins?

Although I wouldn't call them overrated personally

Peope unironically saying Ohlins and Bilsteins are overrated.

Just how many bus riders are there in January?

It's there on the list. I think OP tried to type Ö and it turned into ÖHLINS.

You can get Konis with the same adjustments for £200 less. And Koni is just as reputable a company.

Even MOPRE reputable, seeing as Koni is almost 5x as old as KW.

Why on earth are you asking us? Better to ask someone who works with testing/designing suspension

This Only acceptable time to say you "built" a car was when you hand crafted the parts.

@Bidwell
the reputability of Koni versus KW is debatable. Koni is older and cheaper, but Every single car in the WTCC uses KW coilovers.
If KW suspension can make a FWD Daewoo wipe the floor with a RWD BMW, it truly deserves praise.

@StonedTime
Mfw you reminded me that Intrax existed and they make coils for the S30 now
I don't even want to know what they cost because there's no way I can afford it.

That's why I said KWs are overPRICED, not overrated. They're a good suspension for sure, but for cheaper you can get the same offerings from other companies that offer performance just as good. You're paying a premium for the name. Plus, race teams in WTCC get most of their stuff for free, or at a heavily discounted rate. Or else they wouldn't be slapping the name of the companies on the side of their cars. And (I think) the reason they don't go for big names like MOTON or MCS is because they can't get those teams to sponsor them, whereas KW is likely more than happy to.

Wasn't listed but pedders in Australia are overpriced junk.

Monroe are under rated as fuck

Worst suspension Ive ever had was ultima shocks

@Booteefool
400 dollars per insert isn't really cheap either tho, that's if you're just buying strut inserts, not entire complete drop in coilovers.

That's just garbage that O'Reilly's pretends is better than the Gabriel garbage at vatozone.

Unless you mean Monroe, the sexy Russian, she's seriously underrated.

Monroe and Gabriel are just OE replacements, dude. Just because they're not high performance doesn't mean they're garbage.

@StonedTime

having a hard time finding proper coilovers for my car instead of the shitty universal coilovers prev. owner installed.
car wasn't big in Amerifatland so no luck with the usual brands
not even KSport
random user mentions Intrax
"Hey, wasn't that brand on a Need for Speed game?"
check Intrax's catalogue
mfw they have three options for the Suzuki Swift

FUCKING MVP SHIT RIGHT HERE user THANK YOU VERY MUCH INDEED

BTW, on the topic of KSports: I've personally seen them perform pretty good. Mind you, this is the third world and this cocaine-niggers have never seen a genuine KW Coilover setup to compare with but still, they've made a name for themselves here even in big budget builds (Mind you, big budget in a country where the exchange rate for a burgerdollar is 3000 cocainepesos).

They may not be WTCC-tier stuff but far from the chinese shit people make them to be.
