KW V3 coil overs - experience

Hi all- been a minute since I have posted here. I am looking for real world experiences on the upgrade to KW coilovers to your Z4M. What I am looking for is general better comfort than stock suspension of my Z4M Roadster.
I am not too thrilled about lowering the car but I guess it is part of this suspension upgrade. Overall, I am looking for a little better ride quality than stock as it may be time to upgrade suspension anyway.

Thanks.

Hi Andy,

The KWs seem to have the least amount of lowering of any of the suspension kits (10mm front, 5mm rear), which is one of the reasons I bought them for my Z4M.

I was skeptical of the claims that they would improve ride quality, but they did. Itís not night vs day - this is always going to be a jiggly car - but it deals with bumps considerably better. Overall, Iím very happy with mine.

Ok good, thank you for that. I am looking for an improvement but I'm also realistic that I won't get back a ton of it. I'm looking to see if I can get this done next spring. I'm about to have inspection 1 performed on my vehicle before I put it up for the winter. Thanks again.
