The Benchmark for Coilovers
KW Variant 1 "inox-line" coilover rewards the sporty driver with its harmonious pre-configured setup. For each vehicle our engineers develop a specific damper setup and spring rate to increase the driving pleasure with an optimal balance of sportiness and practicality. As with all KW coilovers, the engineers at KW develop the vehicle-specific KW damper tuning and spring rates with comprehensive testing on the Nürburgring Nordschleife and in the KW 7-post chassis dynamics test center.
You are not buying a mass produced, generic coilover kit, a KW coilover has been developed specifically for your particular vehicle. As a manufacturer, KW uses only its own resources, high quality components and the damper technology that has all developed in-house. With the KW Variant 1 "inox-line" coilovers, body roll will be reduced during compression giving you the benefit of a more genuine and direct sporty handling while driving.
