THATS PERFECT!
I know you have a red TCR so. I'll keep an eye out for you Marcus.
I'll be the most English German looking guy you'll find there (very tall and blonde) in a black 3 door 7R with Neuspeed RSe10 wheels and blue TTS callipers.
I'm gonna be with a with buddies who have a white 3 door 7R with a Tarox red BBK and a grey 5 door 7R with Revo wheels and black TTS callipers.
Hopefully we will find each other.
I'll keep an eye on the forum to just in case there's a message here

If you want the perfect match between all day drivability and track use => Bilstein Clubsport
If you want an all day driver which can be used for a few laps on track a year => None of them :LOL: (I'd suppose KW DDC)
If you want a tracktool that can be used for a few Kms all day a year => KW Clubsport 3-way

In words: the Bilstein CS is much more comfortable than the KW CS (3-way more comfortable than 2-way). Bilstein CS is a coil kit that works very good in all day driving (even the Misses didn't argue ;)) and gives you a bit more track ability than usual coil kits ("no-CSs"). But it's not that much. Concerning track ability the KW is much better (3-way near to perfection) but you have to live with a car that is no all day driver any longer. Even the Kms to the racetrack done on the own axle are no real fun.

In the end: that's just my feelings. I know, especially concerning hardness/softness of coil kits there are lots of different individual feelings. And even a KW CS can be alligned a bit like "soft". But then the track ability suffers and the all day characteristics aren't really good yet.

Hey MaOdy, I noticed that the roads near Nürburg are insanely smooth. So you're saying even these beautiful German roads are no good with any of these Coilovers? If that is the case, our American / California roads will be a complete disaster with any of the Coilovers it seems.

I'd mention again that I am 50+ aged... ;)
And the roads were mostly renewed in the last months.
