Fichtenberg (Germany), September 22nd 2014 – KW is proud to launch V1, V2 and V3 coilovers for the F33 BMW 4-series convertible and giving a maximum lowering of 65mm on both axles. KW Variant 1 has a pre-set damping for a sporty but comfortable ride while the Variant 2 allows 16-click adjustable damping for fine-tuning. Even more adjustment is available from the Variant 3, giving 16-clicks rebound and compression adjustability with 12-clicks to suit all driving conditions. Soon, the KW coilover kits will be available for the both 4-wheel-drive versions of the BMW 4 series convertibles – 435i xDrive and 435d xDrive.
BMW vehicles are renowned for their driving dynamics as standard, so when combined with a high-quality coilover kit the driving experience is dramatically improved! KW is pleased to launch V1, V2 and V3 coilovers for the BMW 4-series convertible (F33) greatly improving the driving dynamics and also the stance with a German TÜV-approved lowering up to 65mm on the front and rear axle. “With KW coilovers fitted drivers will benefit from technology that is derived from our motorsport department onto the road” explains KW product manager Johannes Wacker. “Lots of BMW racecars like the BMW Z4 FR3 and M325i Racing Cup are equipped with KW dampers, and similar to motorsport suspensions the Variant 3 benefits from adjustable rebound and compression damping.”
With this level of adjustability the KW coilovers can be setup on the BMW 4-series to cater for additional modifications including bigger wheels, sporty tyres or additional engine performance. The rebound can be adjusted with 16 exact clicks using the upper end of the piston rod. With adjustment of the compression damping, the BMW’s basic setup can be altered to adjust the rolling motion of the body without having to alter the rebound rates.

Rebound can also be adjusted with 16 clicks on the KW Variant 2 coilover, whereas the KW Variant 1 system has the damping pre-set from the factory and cannot be adjusted. Drivers who want to have a compromise between sporty handling and daily drivability will find the Variant 1 perfect for their driving needs. All three KW coilover kits are made of stainless steel and enable a continuous lowering of 40 to 65 millimeter at both axles. Soon, the KW coilovers will be available for 4 series convertible with BMW xDrive fitted (4-wheel-drive).
