So I just installed them. I have maybe 5km on them, but so far they ride really well. As good if not better than my VWR springs+stock shocks with over 30,000km.

Definitely worth the $250 (Canadian) shipped. During install I did run into one issue where the rear springs have the logos upside down. This originally made me believe the perch was supposed to sit at the bottom inside the control arm but thats not the case.
The other issue is even though the rear height adjustment is easy to access when taking off the wheel, turning the ring just spins the entire perch. Poor design flaw. So have to take out the spring to adjust height. Kind of annoying.

I'm also getting a little noise in the rear. I think I just need to tighten the top bolt not he shock assembly. But its wayyy too hot so I'm going to live with it for now.

It's not a design flaw. My kw v1's do the same.

Still a flaw. An easy fix would be to add the "teeth" to both parts of the perch so you can use one spanner to hold the main assembly in place and the other to adjust height. This way it's no longer needed to take it apart to adjust the rears.
