    They make custom KW ones to suit the top of the shock as far as i'm aware! So compbrakes can be ordered for KW coilovers.

    Hi, I am interested to get the top mounts that fits the KW v3, Who should I contact?
    I've been told that the Compbrakes top mounts are not a direct fit.

    I talked to Conpbrakes and they were confident they were sending me the right ones. They have lots of nut/sleeve sizes for different set ups

    I was speaking to tombate911 about this ages ago, havent troubled him since because i'm not in a position to buy anything until later this year ( wedding yawn ).

    I do however have my KW v3's off the car on the shelf so more than happy to take measurements etc as I do want a set of top mounts myself.

    I think they said it was an M12 or M12.1?

    the kw v3 are different around the spring seat so it needs something different there not just nut/sleeve size differences.

    Top mounts have arrived today at home so I’ll take a pic and upload when home if that’ll help confirm?

    I told them V3 and they were pretty confident they had the right fitting?

    What age is your car? Does it have the 197/ early 200 top mounts or the later smaller top mounts?

    Compbrake mounts purchased through me do work with the kw’s. However out of the box the standard set up doesn’t mount to the KW purple top cap which holds the spring.
    I have done custom set ups for 197/KW v3’s and will have some
    Photos of a later 200/KW v3’s later next week. I will get photos,
    If anyone needs anything or any questions dont hesistate to ask.

    I was very specific on the phone that they were for KW and the guy said that wasn’t an issue and the right ones would be sent out?

    Is there a way I can check them?

    For the mount to fit into the purple top cap it should be a 91mm diameter spring black top cap if it’s for the early top mounts with kw’s.
    Any questions bounce me an email.

    Just bought the top mounts from Tombate911 for my rs200 - 2011 (old version top mounts) fitted with KW's v3.

    Will post an update when received and installed.

    Just a little update.
    Last week I got around to make a one of top cap for the KW Later Clio 200 mounts. Once these have been checked and mounted up I will have some more of these made to work with the later 200 mounts and KW's.

    Any of the KW Compbrake top mounts are only available through myself at the moment as they're all custom set ups rather than and off the shelf package.

    Just for reference here is a set I did a couple of years ago for another member on here which is with Clio 197 mounts on KW's
