The 1M V3 is highly likely the M3 dampers with slightly different spring
rates. The Club Sport is better suited for the 1M than V3 with it's soft and progressive springs.

byron
I wouldn't ride on anything else (but then that might upset my mate if I did lol)

As for the V3's, great fast road set up with some track use thrown in but the spring rating can and is on the soft side as they are a road spring application, but KW can and will supply you with a competition spring matched to the shock/dampers which will stiffen things up as I have done with my track day astra opc which is stripped out of 130 plus kg, track day rated tyres, 6 pot alcons up front, solid subframe mounts, modified engine mounts and uprated anti roll bars. Currently KW are building me a set of clubsports but instead of the inox-line stainless housing we will be using the aluminium housing from the 2 way race application and inserting the clubsport internals and matched with comp springs and comp top mounts, good way to bring down more overall weight and assist in unsprung weight.

V3's will do me though on the 1M.........

So for now it seems to be a different system based on part numbers.. I'm thinking about ordering the set right now
Retail for 35220095 is $2679.88

You should order a set

It will not affect your overall warranty but your warranty is out the door because they are not BMW parts.

KW supports the original owner with a lifetime warranty on Variant 3.

KW is making the transition to have the adjustable knobs on all applications but it's a running change so it will take less time for the more popular kits.

Clubsport is in development. Clubsport does not include lifetime warranty as it is intended for track, KW suggests sending them in once a season/year to make sure the valving is to specifications.
