Well i own a e60. I had h&r and ride was stiff even with softest setting and I only had 1 yr warranty. KW you can imitate a stock suspension ride with being lowered. While you get a lifetime warranty. I also felt with the KW that they were just worth the extra dollars.

H&R Coilovers are only height adjustable.

KW adds dampening and rebound adjustability.

Is it worth the price differnce? If you care about saving as much ride quality as possible, then yes it is.

if you don't mind a set of used ones, you can probably find someone here on the forums selling their set. Otherwise brand new your looking anywhere from $2,100 - $2,700.

Don't get H&R ..they are very harsh and rough ride. I had an issue with the shocks and the company would not honor their warranty/part. Kept on blaming everything else but the part. H&R customer service is a JOKE. Horrible! Literally sounds like its a 2 person operation. Their quality is CRAP!
I wished I went with KWs...big mistake just to save a few bucks.
