I have the ST coilovers as well and am very pleased. Very comparable to stock S8 when dialed in.

I looked at the V2s and they do seem nice, but they are more than double the cost of the St setup which I am perfectly happy with. It does take a bit of adjustment (and I had to fab up a set of spacers to raise the rear a small amount for ideal balance and performance) but my full setup including the parts I made came out to less than $820 total and I wouldn't change a thing. Well, maybe one thing - when they are very cold, they tend to make clunking noises for all of a foot or so when you first roll out, but I attribute that more to the conditions than anything else. The sound is gone after the first full rotation of the wheels and does not return until the next time you park it for an extended period in chilly weather. I can live with it.
