KW Newsletter /// April 2014

The racing season has started successfully for the race teams equipped and supported by KW.

Whether on asphalt or gravel - the KW Competition suspension technology is used worldwide and has been proven in different kinds of motor sport. Even on the toughest circuit of the world, the Nürburg- ring Nordschleife, more than 60 teams rely on KW suspension kits for example at the Nürburgring Long Distance Championship (VLN).
One racing team each was able to reach the overall victory with KW Competition suspension kits already in the first two races of the season. Also in touring car racing, the KW coilovers are very popular, whether for a national brand trophy or at world championships like the WTCC. With our strong commitment in motor sports, you as a KW dealer can be sure, that also for our KW coilovers for the street, an ongoing technology transfer from motorsport is made constantly.

KW Coilovers for the new BMW M235i and all BMW 2-series

KW is pleased to announce the release of three new coilover kits for the BMW M235i and BMW 2-series. Depending if you choose Variant 1, 2 or 3 the rebound and compression damping can be altered individually to suit the driver’s needs. The stainless steel KW coilover bodies are threaded for a continuous, German TÜV-approved lowering of up to 50mm. The adaptive KW DDC coilovers with an optional smart phone app control and the KW Clubsport systems for the BMW 2-series coupe are also in development and will be available soon.

The continuous lowering is made via the trapezoid thread directly at the stainless steel strut. So the BMW 2-series can be lowered by up to 50 mm, the M235i by up to 35 mm.
At KW coilovers V2 and V3, the rebound damping can be adjusted with 16 clicks for less body movements or more comfort.
At the KW coilover kit Variant 3 it is also possible to adjust the compression damping with 12 exact clicks, independent of the rebound damping.
