I understand your sentiment and generally agree but keep in mind, the F30 has been available for around 6 months at this point, a good chunk of time.

KW has been doing suspension for years and when it comes to a coilover with adjustable damping, all they really need to do is study the suspension type, look at the balance and dynamics of the vehicle, make an educated guess on spring rates, & test. A brand new company creating a brand new product would be a different story but KW, who has been doing this for 17 years now, know what they're doing.

On a side note, other chassis with larger aftermarkets get parts much faster. Within the first six months, multiple suspension components from many manufacturers (coilovers, sways, strut bars, chassis braces, etc.), aero options (bumpers, lips, fenders, etc.), exhaust systems, etc. are available. That said, I am happy to wait for some quality parts, such as these KW's
