We developed the next generation of our adaptive KW DDC plug&play coilover kits. The new DDC coilovers have a new DDC valve technology and are compatible with numerous standard suspension controls.
The latest generation of the adaptive KW DDC plug&play coilovers is now also available for the current BMW M4 (F82) and M3 (F80).
It is the intelligent retrofit solution for all M4 and M3 (F82, F80) with optional “adaptive M suspension”.
The complete suspension control system of the adaptive KW coilovers works via the BMW series sensor system and this also controls the KW valves. Even with our DDC coilover kit, the driver can switch between the individual driving modes with the serial button.
As a result, only the standard suspension has to be replaced by the KW suspension and the KW DDC plugs simply have to be connected to the original plugs.
The sensors, for example, adapt the suspension adjustment in comfort mode within one hundredth of a second to the respective driving situation.
When accelerating during overtaking maneuvers or on the highway acceleration lane, also the damper adjustment gets more direct. This happens so fast and harmonious that you will hardly notice it in everyday life.
The adjustment of the lowering at the adaptive KW DDC plug&play coilovers is made via the dirt-resistant KW trapezoidal thread on the stainless steel strut and the rear axle height adjustment.
The approved range allows a continuous lowering of 15 to 40 mm on both axles for the M4 coupé (F82) and M3 sedan (F80).
When retrofitting, the series struts and dampers only have to be replaced by the KW components and the KW DDC plugs must be connected to the original plugs. The serial sensor system recognizes the adaptive KW dampers.
With the new generation, we no longer relies on a so-called electromagnetic bypass valve (see image left), which for example is attached at the side of the strut or damper, but the new development of KW is an adaptive and electronic valve that is located directly on the piston rod in the damper housing. As a result, the new adaptive KW DDC plug&play coilovers will be available for more and more cars.
