TX did you go for the KW1 or KW2?Agree 100%!
Today I was driving pretty hard around some twisty roads and was blown away by how much better the road hugging ability of the car seems to be with the KWs. I think it even put a smile on my face at that point.
TX has the KW 2's as the KW 1's are not yet available.TX did you go for the KW1 or KW2?
Ok, thanksTX has the KW 2's as the KW 1's are not yet available.
OK, I'm sold! The KW2s are definitely better than the H&R's (but you all knew that anyway ).Manor50 is kindly giving me a demo ride tomorrow evening in his S5 just so I can be sure before digging deep for the KW's. I don't think there will be any doubt though.
Whilst I did clean it Saturday morning for the Yorkshire Meet, it was not even close to Manor's which was gleaming.I hope your car was clean Reb.
Sizzle has them on his S5: http://www.a5oc.com/forums/showthread.php/kw-variant-2-3548/index.html?p=44478Maybe I'm going a bit of topic here but has anybody tried out the H&R Coilovers? Any thoughts on those?
The general feeling is that the KW V2 is probably just a bit better than the stock option on an S5. So, with an A5 you would probably notice the difference in that direction.Now I am a happy A5 owner again.Whilst I don't think the ride is as smooth etc as the stock system, it's very close and a vast improvement on the H&Rs.
You didn't try very hard then...Where can I order these and get them shipped to Sweden? Can't find that info...
Thanks for your two minutesYou didn't try very hard then...
A little bit of research effort on your part would have saved me the less than 2 minutes it took to find these 2 importers in Sweden. Have a look at the KW web site here for details. They both list KW kits so would be a good place to start asking if they can supply the A5 systems.
Well, I went to APS today and had the KW V2 Coilovers fitted.

The ride home was via a cross country route rather than the clogged up and boring M1 and both my son and I enjoyed the journey.
I took the family out this evening and Mrs REB says it is money well spent - so I must have done something right for a change.
So, thank you to those that offered advice and again particularly to Manor50 for the ride in his S5.
Thanks also go to Ed and his team at APS for a job well done.
Just the remap to go now to complete the picture.
PM sent.Manor, if you could let me have the details of your paint man via PM please, I would be grateful. My son needs some work done on his Mini.
