Kw coilovers

Had my kw v3 coilovers installed today on x6 m and when set to suggested settings the suspension was way to soft. What settings are people running in compression and rebound for best all around performance?

I guess the shop set them initially starting at full open rather than from full closed - ( it is a race shop and the coilovers they use on their race cars are set that way) they reset them and it handles as it should now..
