Default KW Variant 3 coilovers

KW is a very reputable company whose products can be found on many different cars. From Evo's to M3's, this versatile suspension has proven its worth on many different applications.

While we were at Tokyo Auto Salon we watched a video of this M3 just zooming around the corners. This M3 was putting down some good times in our opinion.

Come on, we all know the G and the Z need different coilovers, I hope this isn't just a g37 coilover kit...

To my understanding these coilovers are for the Z34 3670Z also

9kg/mm is good for an aggressive street setup especially if it progressive, but it's a little soft for the track (stock is 7.5 front / 8.0 rear, and I'd estimate the Nismo between 8.5 and 9).
