Good morning ISFer's. I placed an order for the KW v3 yesterday (going on my 2012) and am excited to get them in and installed. To those of you with these coilovers, how are they holding up after (x) many years of service? Also, what use are you getting out of them (street, track, combination, etc) and does that have any impact on their quality/longevity? From everything I've read, these are the way to go for the coilover for our cars, but I couldn't find much long term reporting.
Thanks in advance.

KW V3's are great coilovers and offer a wide range of adjustability. Not sure what you are going to be doing with them but longevity is not easily calculated. Road conditions, track days, and early failure of the coilover are all conditions that determine longevity.
Yea KW is one of the best out there I wouldnt worry about the projected lifetime of them.
They should be fine for as long as someone owns the car

you bought some top notch parts. Rest assured you will be fine. My Tein CSTs help for 65k and I heard from the new owner and he said the car was at 98k with the same coils. If Tein lasts like that then KW will have no issue

The ISF......The perfect car for an enthusiast. It can be driven to the track, run hard all day , and then transport me hundreds of miles home in luxury and comfort to pick up the wife for dinner and a movie....
One of the rear shocks won't rebound and apparently sprayed fluid all over the tech. They called KW and were diagnosed as defective. Im still waiting for THMotorsports to get it together and have me ship them back and a new set sent. Starting to get frustrated with them now too as it's been 3 days with no resolution.
