The version 5's are very nice struts, however they are not adjustable. I have the version 5's on my car and I like them very much but I regret not having the ability to adjust the ride quality. If I had it to do all over again I'd order the AGX's.

I got the FHI V5's because they were cheaper and I don't really care about adjustability hehe (although these are EXCELLENT struts)...And so far I don't regret it. I looked at my possible needs and came to the conclusion that for me, buying adjustable struts just wasn't necessary. However everyone feels differently, and adjustability IS a good option, and if you think you'll use it, then go for it!

I have to agree with FIDO. I have the V5's with H&R sport springs and I think they are just fine for everyday driving. But if you think, or know adjustablity is what you want/need, just do it.
