As some of you all maybe aware we have acquired a Mineral White BMW F82 M4 as our new shop car to replace our Audi TTRS. Although sad to see the 2.5T 5 cylinder project go, our Team is eager to develop this new car in to something as formidable as the APR Stage 3 equipped Audi.
Since the initial purchase of the BMW we have planned to take a slower path of progression with this car and enjoy it in all its' various stages of development. This will allow for us to provide a higher level of direct feedback to our customers. Our Team will complete this task by installing, driving, and understanding the real world effects of the products installed, thus translating to the driving experience.
Our current car is already lowered on springs, but after driving the car for a few weeks it is clear that the stock struts are not paired well with the lowering springs. For those looking to lower their car on a budget it is an acceptable solution, but for making the most out of the car on the street and track we have elected to go with the trusted KW Suspension's Variant 3 coilovers.
This is how they show up, direct from KW.
Notice how the items are packaged. There is no way in which any of the components could be damaged in transport. The instruction booklet and adjustment tool sit on top of foam wrapping over the springs, the EDC Modules and associated hardware sit in a box between the perches and on top of the strut mounts, the coil overs are all held securely in place with strong corrugated cardboard braces…. The way KW packages its product is a feat of engineering in itself. You can tell this company is ran by engineers not accountants, and for us, that’s a very good thing.
This is KW’s tried and tested V3 coil over system for the F82 BMW M4.
One of the best parts about ordering a KW product is that every nut, bolt, and zip tie will be included in the box.
These particular modules are required to duplicate the signals from the factory BMW Adaptive Suspension, of course they are included to ensure no error messages after removing the factory shocks.
Even the instruction booklet and adjuster tool get their own dedicated case. Do you think KW cares about the product they offer?
WE THINK SO!
Stay tuned for Part Two, which will include the complete installation as well as how this car compares to both the H&R Springs we have on the car now versus the KW H.A.S. Spring kits we have installed on customer cars.
