has anyone got experience (and can compare) both Bilstein B16 PSS9 and KW V3?

has anyone got experience of both Bilstein B16 PSS9 and KW V3?

From reading around, the feeling I get is that they are both equally good for sport driving settings but KW may be better suited for not-so-good roads, is this right?

Looking at online pictures, Billies seem to use standard 2.5" springs (which means it is easier to get softer/harder replacements, if desired, while KW do with the 'upsidedown cone' shaped ones, at the front, which are A156/GT specific.


Are billies adjustable separately in bound & rebound as the KWv3? it is not clear from the online product descriptions.

How easy is to adjust? looking at the KW piccies, the bound knob is at the bottom of the shock, which would be in the pitchfork for the fronts, not exactly within easy reach.

Do KWs use helper springs?
