Default bc racing or KWs?

im looking at getting coilovers for my 97 318ti. i cant decide between bc racing (BR) coilovers or KW V1 coilovers. my friend is running BCs on his 88 MR2 and they feel good on his car and are at a good price but, depending on how i set them up they could feel different. but, ive also read that the KWs are another good coilover for the ti and are at a similar price but less adjustments. i know the KWs are very well built and most of the money goes into R&D but, if the BCs can preform just as good, if not better for a cheaper price i will chose them.

For your application I would say KW. Both are will work for your application though

^what Zek said.
Kw is better performance wise, but if you're not gonna really push the suspension hard then it really doesnt matter. In most cases BC will do just fine tho
