KW coilovers for the new VW Golf VII GTI
KW now has the KW coilovers Variant 1, Variant 2 and Variant 3+ made of stainless steel available for the new VW Golf VII GTI. The stainless KW coilovers allow a continuous lowering within the German TÜV-tested adjustment range of 25 – 55 mm. In addition to lowering, the Variant 2 coilovers can also be adjusted in rebound with 16 clicks to get a more comfortable or firmer damper setting. Even more driving dynamic settings are possible with the KW coilovers Variant 3+. Besides the rebound with 16 clicks, the performance-oriented driver can also adapt the compression damping with twelve clicks. This allows him to significantly influent the handling characteristics and driving behaviour of his VW Golf VII GTI.
Already in its seventh generation, the VW Golf GTI sets a sporty benchmark in compact class. The stainless steel KW coilovers give the new GTI a significant increase in driving dynamics and safety with a stylish lowering. The KW coilover kit Variant 1 with its pre-configured KW damper setup offers an optimized balance of sportiness and everyday practicality. For those who not only want to lower their VW Golf VII GTI, will get the possibility with KW coilovers Variant 2 to further adjust the basic damper setup which is adapted to the wheel- / tire combination approved by VW. “The rebound damping can be varied with 16 precise clicks directly at the upper end of the piston rod,” said KW Product Manager Johannes Wacker. “So everyone can adjust the KW coilover kit Variant 2 he wants to, either tighter or more comfortable.” This makes sense especially when changing the alloy wheels offered by Volkswagen to a different wheel- / tire combination.
Performance pure: the KW coilover kit Variant 3+
The perfect symbiosis of driving dynamics, everyday practicality and adjustment possibilities is offered by KW coilovers Variant 3+, made of stainless steel. In addition to a continuous lowering, the KW Variant 3+ also offers a separate rebound and compression damping adjustment. “Our KW coilover kit Variant 3+ is an ideal performance accessory for the GTI”, said Johannes Wacker. “As the vehicle-specific KW basic setup can be adjusted individually.” For example the KW bottom valve which is adjustable with 12 clicks in the low-speed range of the compression damping, gives drivers the chance to consider the tire characteristics of high- and ultra-light-performance street tires. With its patented compression adjustment at the lower end of the piston at the stainless steel housing, not even tools are needed. The rebound with an adjustment range of 16 clicks allows to directly influent the handling and comfort of the Volkswagen Golf VII GTI. By increasing the rebound forces at the adjustment wheel, the body movements will be reduced. Then the GTI rides with more directional stability and drivers get more stability when driving fast in corners. If for example someone changes the wheel- / tire combinations approved by VW to larger rims, the driving behaviour of the GTI can be perfectly adapted to the new light-alloy wheels.
The continuous lowering is made on all KW coilovers for the VW Golf VII GTI via the dirt-resistant stainless steel trapezoid thread directly on the stainless steel strut. At the front, the Golf can be lowered within the TÜV tested adjustment range by 25 to 55 mm. At the rear, the vehicle height adjustment is made directly at the rear-axle height adjustment, in the range of 20 to 45 mm. The KW coilovers are also available for the “regular” VW Golf VII and convince by their vehicle-specific basic setup. “Our adaptive KW DDC coilovers in Plug & Play version and with iPhone control are already in development”; said Johannes Wacker about to the next generation of KW coilovers for the GTI.
