KW Suspensions F92 M8 / M8C Coilover Kit - Variant 4
The KW Variant 4 coilover suspension for BMW M8 (F92), and BMW M8 (F92) Competition, with three-way high-performance dampers, is an ideal way to combine the demand for a continuously adjustable lowering with increased handling, ride comfort, and driving performance. The damper technology developed by KW automotive, which was also used in the original equipment of the limited production run of the BMW M4 GTS, ensures a significant improvement in cornering stability even at high velocities. The body’s tendency to roll in fast corners is greatly reduced. KW suspensions developed the Variant 4 with the focus on driving enjoyment while improving the vehicle dynamics.
With the use of adjustable multi-valve KW technology, the dampers are designed to increase driving comfort. Our factory-set performance setting can be changed at any time to a comfort-oriented setup through the independently adjustable low-speed rebound and compression damping in the low and high-speed ranges. With 16 precise clicks, the rebound forces can be set for firmer handling or improved ride comfort. Using the two compression adjuster wheels directly on the damper, you are able to adjust the steering behavior and other factors such as ride comfort and tire grip. With six clicks in low-speed compression (seven characteristic curves) and 15 clicks in high-speed compression (16 characteristic curves), the KW Variant 4 allows a large tuning range for an individual damper setup. In addition to the “Performance Setup” preset from the factory, our technical documentation provided also includes an easy to follow manual for adjusting the dampers. The KW valve technology also features a blow-off characteristic. The resulting high low-speed damper forces provide support for the vehicle body while preventing the body from lifting a wheel off the ground during aggressive high damper speeds (crossing bumps).
The Benchmark for Coilovers
As with all KW coilovers our engineers develop vehicle specific damper and spring specifications which undergo comprehensive testing on the Nürburgring Nordschleife and in our KW 7-post Driving Dynamic Test Center. With a KW Variant 4 coilover kit the driving experience is more dynamic and direct.
