I ran the V3's on my W8 and they are excellent coilovers but most drivers will not benefit from the speed variable dampening which can be a real PITA to setup; especially on 4Motions. You must remove the coilovers in order to make height and dampening adjustments, so you better have a nice installer or have the patience of Jobe.

The V3's highest setting was a smidgen lower than the 1BA (stock NA suspension) configuration. Honestly, I wouldn't recommend the V3's unless you plan on racing the car. You would be better off with V1's because the ride dampening is similar to H&R Sports with Bilstein shocks. Now if you need to adjust ride stiffness, I'd recommend Bilstein PSS9's.
