I've just recently purchased a set of these (along with new mounts and bearings) and waiting on them to be delivered.

Send the bearings back! You don't need them, just the mounts.
I bet he is very satisfied. I'm still after one year, they are great

Thank you to who posted this thread, and bumped it. This helped me a ton in considering my options for coilovers. Ive literally never tracked my car in the year Ive owned it, and want to go coilovers for lowering purposes. All this informations defintely helped me to figure out where I want to go. Now to just save money and do the damn deed!

I'm bumping an old thread.

Looking at buying some KW V1's or Street Comforts for my 16' GTI with PP. I've read on a few forums that people have had issues with them but it seems like they are mainly people in Europe. Has anyone in North America had any actual issues with them?

I'll be running 19x8.5 rotiforms with 235/35/19 tires at 45 offset with the coilovers. Seems like a pretty standard setup for GTIs so no fitment issues there but I'm mostly concerned about issues with the coilovers and deleting the DDC.

Any information is welcomed.

Coilover Kit Information

You could try out MSS. It keeps your DCC functionality and people have said very nice things about their spring kits with DCC

Has anyone tried the Forge Motorsport coilovers yet? They look very similar to the Fortune coilovers that my buddy loves on his '15 STI.

According to their website the spring rates are: 9kg/mm (front) and 5kg/mm (rear)
