Are these still available? Are these kits a big improvement over h&r springs and koni yellows?

Not on a GB sorry, i can do a set for 975 delivered, and yes much better than a lowering spring and damper combo, hugely adjustable for rebound/compression and of course height

Sounds good bud, how does the ride compare to spring/damper setup?

Firmer ride for sure as these are a mix of V3 valving and Club sport linear springs and camber top mounts

Great setup good for fast road and track use

Can give my 2p regards these . I still can't believe how KW managed to make them at this cost ( galvanized bodies vs stainless steal ones, can be such a difference? ) , had V3's before and they cost me arm and leg when added top mounts and a bit of a pain to set the sweet spot for different tracks . This was on the Mitsi , not M3 , and the bump adjustment was on the bottom of the strut meaning i need to crawl under the car if i'm not happy with adjustment. I was looking into Bilies or V2's this time for the exact reason , for me the pre fixed bump/rebound adjustment which is easy to reach was important. V2's on M3s were front and back progressive spring without top mounts meaning extra spending , so i decided to continue searching and found these ST XTA's . Spending some time to see the design differences between KWs i was surprised they share parts in between , spring option was taken from club sports (1kg softer ) linear front and same progressive rear , rather than V2/V3 both progressives. Club Sport top mounts alone cost 400 quid and these have them in the kit , you can not get a better bargain than this IMO.

Having them for a bit now , i found the ride being very compliant on our "perfect" bumpy roads , slow speed bump deals perfectly with pot holes and ruff stretches of the road . They're still on the firm side , but because the quality damping characteristics , they're very forgiving and not crashy or bouncy at all. I'm yet to find how they deal with track work (end of this month) , but on my hoon roads on harder settings they give enough confidence to push the car harder and harder. There's still a bit of roll even on hard setting , but that is down to oem ARB's rather than springs IMO. As a compromise for fast road and odd track day coil i don't think you can get any better than these for the price vs quality . And for the price Martin does them it's an absolute steal .

That's made my mind up bud, going to fit these and sell my h&r springs. So I will need reinforced rear top mounts to go with these? Are the shafts 10 or 12mm? I have a rear strut brace I can put on if it helps

When I bought my xta's I also purchased powerflex top mounts for the rear with them (all from Martin, trackm3). They fitted straight on no problem and come with the z3 style reinforcement plates.
