Now available: KW coilovers for BMW M2!
The new BMW M2 is designed for uncompromising driving dynamics and it sets new standards in the compact sports car segment.
The KW 3 Way Clubsport coilover kit makes it possible to optimally adjust the driving behavior of the BMW M2 to reach fast lap times at the race track. For example, the BMW M2 Clubsport coilovers can be optimally adjusted for the prevailing conditions on the Nürburgring Nordschleife, which are known to vary widely throughout it’s 12+ mile track configuration. In addition the coilovers allow the M2 to be lowered by up to 45 mm with the Clubsport suspension. With KW 3 way Clubsport coilovers, you are not only able to select from the expertly tuned “Track-Setup” and “Road-Setup” provided in the setup manual, the KW racing valve technology even allows the user to fine tune the damper settings in the high & low speed compression as well as rebound, all of which function independently of each other. A BMW M2 equipped with a KW 3 Way Clubsport coilover kit drives extremely precise and direct in all driving situations and is sure to increase the dynamics of what is set to be an instant classic released by BMW. KW has also developed the Variant 3 coilover kit with adjustable rebound and compression forces for the new BMW M2 (Type M3) as well.
Technology from racing: separately and independent adjustable compression and rebound technology
The KW 3 Way Clubsport coilover suspension is different than convention sports suspensions and coilovers. In addition to the racing spring system used, KW also offers an adjustable 3 way high performance damper.
At the upper end of the piston rod, the rebound can be adjusted with 16 exact clicks via the rebound adjustment wheel. Increased rebound forces ensure a stiffer handling and significantly less body roll. The steering precision is noticeably improved at high speeds while nearing the limit of driving dynamics. A lower rebound force is better on uneven and wavy road surfaces.
In addition, you can change the compression damping in the high-speed range manually with 14 clicks and the low-speed compression with 6 clicks. The motorsports technology which has trickled down into the 3 Way clubsport kits provides precise, consistent and more importantly repeatable results.
Here we are using our patented KW valve technology with two throttle valves. The low-speed is always designed linearly, while for the high-speed we configure the spring-loaded valve digressively.
The high-speed valve can open sooner or later in a certain system pressure, depending on the selected setup.
When driving fast over bumps and curbs, A harder low-speed setting creates a more direct steering response from the front axle and it acts against oversteering on the rear axle. This is without a negative affect on the deflection behavior of the high-speed compression range.
Another unique feature is our hard coated components made of aircraft aluminum and special brass alloys which not only guarantee an excellent durability but are also low maintenance. In addition, the alloys provide a lower friction in the damper working space, in order to reduce breakaway moments. The camber angle can be adjusted for an optimum contact surface of the tires when cornering hard and driving fast into corners thanks to the Clubsport top mounts.
With the KW 3 Way Clubsport coilovers, the BMW M2 receives the same suspension technology as the BMW M4 GTS and the successful BMW Z4 GT3, with which BMW claimed the overall victory at the 24 hours of Spa-Francorchamps race in 2015.
With street legal and continuous lowering
Just like the KW Clubsport coilovers available for the BMW M4, the KW 3 Way Clubsport coilover suspension is also made of stainless steel for the BMW M2 and has been homologated for use on public roads. After a successful track day, the setup can be changed to a more comfortable setting and the trip home can be started with the M2 driving on its own four wheels instead of being towed in a trailer.
Lowering can be continuously adjusted at any time, the changes are made directly on the stainless steel strut via the dirt-resistant KW trapezoid thread. The stainless-steel KW Clubsport coilover kit for the M2 allows a continuous lowering of 15 – 40 mm at the front axle and 20 – 45 mm on the rear axle. The Variant 3 also gets the same continuously adjustable lowering range.
