I have found Koni's to be inconsistant when the going gets tough, and they heat up, and work poorly. In my experience Bilsteins are the only way to go....

Ok, i personally havnt used konis so dont really know too much about them, but ive certainly read a LOT of good info on them.
I personally went for the bilsteins n will be using them from now on, love them - they deliver even more than i expected, what else could be better.
I reccomend bilsteins, but koni are said to be great also.

I have found my koni's very good. Ok so I don't race my car on a track but I give it stick around a few corners. I find the limitation is more with the live axle suspension rather than the shocks.

i have experience with many brands of shocks, Koni Bilstein, KYB, monroe, boge etc. If you want to spend the money Bilsteins are the best option in my view, Koni are overated and expensive for what they are. KYB are good value all rounder.

Absolutely spot on summary IMO

Even despite the option to be able to adjust the Konis? I'm still undecided between Koni and Bilstein for my cars, both similar prices.

Well.... - I'd personally put it this way: I fitted Koni Yellows (externally adjustable) all round on my car and spent months mucking about with the adjustment and never got the car feeling right. Then I fitted the Bilsteins and the car instantly felt and handled perfect - I used to spend virtually all my spare time buggering about with the shocky adjustments and under the car messing with the sway bars and check tightening everything - but since the Bilsteins went in I haven't touched the suspension except to make an initial adjustment to the front sway bar to get the front/rear balance spot on - and that adjustment WORKED - something I never experienced while the Konis were in the car.

The way I'd concisely put it is that for about the same price as Konis, Bilsteins give you true "Next Level" performance - I do not consider Koni and Bilstein to be comparable - Bilstein are the better product by far.
