KW coilovers for the new BMW 1-series

Driving pleasure meets concentrated sport with KW coilovers for the new BMW 1-series. “Currently our successful coilovers are available for all 1-series type 1K4 models without adaptive damper control”, said Johannes Wacker, Product Manager at KW automotive. The now available KW coilovers Variant 2 and Variant 3 “inox-line” allow the demanding sport driver to adjust his suspension kit to his individual preferences. At the KW coilovers Variant 2 “inox-line”, there are 16 exact click levels available to adjust the rebound damping. Handling and driving comfort of the BMW 1-series can be adjusted to the way the driver wants. There is an ergonomic adjustment wheel in the practical KW tool kit which is part of the delivery content. It simply has to be sticked into the rebound adjustment which is placed at the upper end of the piston rod, and be turned into the appropriate direction. It has never been more comfortable to set up the rebound – the driver only has to open the hood of his car.


Even in basic setup the KW coilover kit Variant 3 “inox-line” convinced with a harmonic comfort for a sporty driving on the road. With the exact damper setting, the driver can influence the driving behavior of his BMW 1-series to enhance the driving pleasure according to his wishes. Directly from the engine compartment, the rebound adjustment is accessible. 16 exact clicks are available to adjust the rebound valves in the damper piston rod. Rebound controls the vibrations of the body and has a direct influence on handling and comfort. In addition to KW coilovers Variant 2, we also have a Variant 3 available, where the compression damping can be adjusted via the integrated compression wheel with the patented KW-multi way valve at the lower vibration damper housing. Twelve exact click levels enable to configure the compression damping, to avoid rolling and movements already during compression without to change the rebound damping which fits to the spring rate optimally. The independently in compression and rebound adjustable KW coilover kit Variant 3 in high quality stainless steel finish gives the new BMW 1-series a plus in driving dynamics and sportiness.


With the KW coilover kit Variant 2 and Variant 3, all BMW 1-series models (Type 1K4) can be lowered continuously from 25 to 50 mm at the front axle. At the rear axle, a lowering of 30 to 55 mm is possible. Alternatively, we also have a KW coilover kit Variant 1 “inox-line” in program. It has a harmonic basic setup for sporty driving and can not be changed individually to the personal driving style or changed wheel loads like Variant 2 or Variant 3 can. “At the moment we are also working on different solutions for models with an adaptive suspension kit”, Johannes Wacker of KW automotive already gives a view on new developments. The adaptive KW DDC coilovers with electronic damper control as plug and play solution or as retrofit option with iPhone App control for BMW 1-series without adaptive suspension kit will be available for the compact BMW.
