D3 probably would make a killing if they designed an alternative that fell somewhere between the cost of a Ground Control kit and the KW V3. I'd certainly be willing to drop $1000 on an upgrade like that.
    i'd also be interested in a kit like that (+/- $1k).

    if the pill is already hard to swallow for the KW V3, it will be even harder to justify spending more.

    then again, when i was club racing motorcycles, the suspension costed almost as much as the bike i raced so there is something to be said for good suspension.

    catch2otwo simply said there are coilovers available that are more affordable than this new D3 setup. He didn't say the D2s or KSports were comparable to the KWs.
