    If i'm to add my 2p its this. I swapped from B16 Pss10 to KW clubsport and loved it. Rode much better over bumps and were a lot firmer. In summary they're better in every way.

    I ran on E92 BTW.

    Great feedback. What are the clubsports like for a daily and occasional track car though?

    I drive the car daily, 17K a year. Beautiful. I doubt you'd be disappointed. Like I say, tougher but comfier than B16.

    I didn’t really understand that. You said they were firmer but comfier...?

    Just to add to my original post, I found my PSS10’s were a little height sensitive. When I initially fitted and set the ride height I found the rear a little bouncy at low speeds. I believe this was a combination of the ride height, stiffness settings and the progressive springs. The rear was a tad low but not ‘slammed’.

    I raised the rear a few turns so the arch and top of the tyre has a slight gap. I also softened up the rebound and compression as 5/10 all round was far too stiff imo for my roads. Even on its softest setting it’s still ‘stiffer’ than the oem suspension but far more compliant and in turn comfier.

    Front spring rate on the pss10’s is 514 lb/in and rear is 800 lb/in.

    IMO pss10’s, KW V3’s AST5100 are a good entry level coilover. The Clubsport variations will undoubtably be better but are double the coin.
