KW Coilover kit adjustable in compression and rebound damping stage: The Variant 3 in the new BMW 3-series ensures increased driving pleasure

From now on, the KW coilover Variant 3 is also available for the new BMW 3-series (G20). The suspension kit allows a stepless lowering of 40 - 60 millimeters, in addition the Variant 3 increases the driving dynamics of the G20 immensely. The handling and road connection are significantly more direct due to the installation of the KW suspension manufactured from stainless steel and made in Germany. The multi-valve technology developed by KW not only ensures increased performance but also a corresponding driving comfort at a maximum lowering. Thanks to the possibility to adjust the KW dampers with 12 clicks in compression and 16 clicks in rebound stage either more comfortable or tighter, the damper characteristics can be further adjusted for an individual driving experience.

For more than forty years, no other automobile series in its segment stands for the proverbial driving pleasure like the BMW 3-series does. Also, for the new BMW 3-series (G20), KW automotive has developed the KW coilover kit Variant 3 that is independently adjustable in compression and rebound damping stage. “In its class, the BMW 3-series is the benchmark when it comes to driving pleasure, and for selected special models and motorsport projects, we work closely together with BMW and M GmbH for the original equipment”, explains KW Product Manager Johannes Wacker.

Like with every KW coilover suspension from the “Street Performance” program always in focus: an agile handling, high driving safety, direct steering and sporty-dynamic driving comfort despite maximum lowering in everyday life. On wavy asphalt surfaces, the KW suspension dampens harmoniously and prevents restless driving. Pitching and rolling movements of the body structure are significantly reduced. No matter if in everyday life on country roads or poorly developed side roads, fast travel on the highway or the holiday ride over mountain passes with endless serpentines, with the KW coilovers Variant 3, the first-class road holding of the new BMW 3-series (G20) is amplified.

As tight as necessary, as comfortable as possible

Our adjustment philosophy for our `Street Performance suspensions´ such as the Variant 3, is always to reach a driving behavior as tight as necessary and as comfortable as possible. This is made possible by the adjustable KW two-way valve technology. It allows to individually adjust the driving behavior of the BMW 3-series (G20) sedan to the personal preferences with 16 clicks in rebound stage and twelve clicks in compression stage. Even with maximum lowering and fast driving over bumps or large transverse joints, the wheels spring through the blow-off characteristics of the Variant 3 dampers. The new BMW 3-series Sedan can be lowered on the front axle and rear axle continuously from 40 to 60 millimeters. Soon, further KW coilovers like the adaptive KW DDC plug&play will be released for the sedan. For the BMW xDrive (four-wheel drive) models, the first KW coilovers are already in development. Of course, the suspension manufacturer offers individual suspension solutions for all BMW 3-series models, including the classic models BMW E30, E36 and E46. Further information at
