About KW Variant 1 (V1) "inox-line" Coilovers
Sporty handling combined with outstanding looks. With factory pre-configured damping.
The KW coilover kit Variant 1 "inox-line" is the entry model for more driving pleasure with an attractive and individually adjustable lowering. Due to its high-quality finish, the use of struts made from stainless steel, corrosion resistant springs and bump stops as well as compatible components stands for long driving pleasure - not just the car's life.
With the KW coilover Variant 1 you can achieve maximum lowering in the tested adjustment range. Depending on vehicle model this varies between 30 to 70mm or 50 to 90mm. Even after years you can adjust the height quickly and easily due to the dirt resistant trapezoid thread and composite collar. Lowering at the front axle is made using our one piece composite height adjuster, on the rear axle this is the same unless the car has a seperate spring and shock absorber. The supplied rear height adjuster sits either above or below the rear spring.
The benchmark for tuning fans
KW coilover Variant 1 "inox-line" satisfies the sporty driver with its harmonic basic setup. KW's engineers develop for each vehicle a specific damper setup and spring rate to increase the driving pleasure with optimal balance of sportiness and practicality.
