KW Variant 2 Coilover Suspension, B8/B8.5 Audi Q5 With Electronic Dampening
Drivers who want more than just an outstanding look and lowering within the TÜV-tested adjustment range, will find that KW Variant 2 "inox-line" coilovers are their perfect suspension solution. The stainless steel struts with corrosion-resistant components provide unmatched durability and give you the possiblity to adjust the dampers to your own requirements with 16 clicks of rebound setting.
More Comfort or More Sportiness - You Decide!
As with all KW coilovers, their engineers develop vehicle specific damper settings which undergo comprehensive test cycles on the Nürburgring Nordschleife and on a 7-post rig at the KW driving dynamic center. A KW coilover kit makes the driving experience more dynamic and direct. With the rebound adjustablility on the KW Variant 2 coilovers you can have more influence in handling and comfort of the car. With 16 precise clicks you can adjust the KW dampers (more firm or more comfortable) without affecting the the compression damping.
The rebound valves on KW twin-tube dampers have to be adjusted at the end of the piston rod with an integrated adjustment wheel or the twist-adjuster which is included with the coilover kit. By increasing the rebound force via the adjustment wheel, the body movements are reduced and adjusts the pitch and roll behavior of the vehicle giving you more stability at increased corner speed. If you change for example the wheel / tire combination (approved by the car manufacturer) to larger wheels, then with a KW Variant 2 coilover you will be able to adjust the car's handling and the new wheels perfectly to each other.
At the KW headquarters in Fichtenberg, every KW Variant 2 "inox-line" coilover is subject to extensive stress tests during production to meet the high standards of their quality control. Each damper and suspension kit is thoroughly tested before ever leaving KW's facilities. Of course, each kit is also backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
