Default Quality between Stance GR+Plus Coilover vs KW V2

I've recently come across a new coilover option in a E46fan thread. Here is the spec.

Stance GR+Plus for E46 M3 fitment price $1650.
GR+ is our main flagship line of coilovers. Oversize diameter shocks allow large pistons for ultimate performance and response. 15-way adjustable damping allows the driver to tune the shocks for any conditions and handling characteristics. With huge range of adjustment that can be felt and seen, GR+ offers serious performance for all levels of drivers. GR+ coilovers are built with highest quality materials and tolerances to ensure durability and performance.

Features:
1.15-Way Damping Adjustable
2.Adjustable Camber Uppermount
3.Pillowball Uppermount
4. Cold Wound Linear Spring
5.Inverted Monotube Shocks
6. Dustboot
7.Aluminum Collars & Upper Mounts
8.Height Adjustable Lower Bracket

Spring rate 6.5k/7.5k.

They seem to be well known in the drift scene. I am doing coilovers in the next couple of months. I was set on KW V2, RTABS, FCABS, RSM, F+R sways.
People compare the Stance to the KW V3.

Anyone have any experience on the stance setup compared to KW V2 or V3.
Thanks

No one whose opinion is worth anything is running them. You're taking a risk.

They seem pretty nice although 7.5 kg/mm rear seems soft. It seems people on this forum are too scared to stray from their precious Koni based or progressive rate German coilovers.

*edit* Not that those are bad, you just won't find a lot of people running newcomers.
