Default Any first hand experience with coilovers?

Looking for coilovers and noticed Tein, Cusco, and KW are the ones available (am I missing any?). I've been leaning towards KW3 as that is what I rocked in my previous Subarus. Has anybody had any first hand experience/reviews?

Thanks,
Derek

I've driven the Racecomp BRZ on JRZ RS1 coilovers. It was honestly one of the best all-around handling and riding cars I've ever driven. *disclaimer - i do a little work on the side for RCE.

There's a little write-up here:

I'll hopefully get some time with KW, then Ohlins, then maybe Bilsteins.

I have KWvar3's on mine...Love them.. pretty simple to adjust..Got them from Strano Performance ...which is owned by Sam Strano...RWD Setup Ace for Track and Autocross..

the KW's probably have the most development out of all the aftermarket suspension companies, As they were the ones to provide Subaru With the Suspension a the the Nurburgring...



on my car..

LIFETIME WARRANTY...pretty much sold it for me.. that and the development..

I've been in the market and looking around for coilovers too and I have ended up choosing to go with the RSRs.

Moto's review as well as the upcoming group buy sealed the deal for me.
