Want to take the handling of the M6 to the next level? KW has released their offering for the new M5. The KW Variant 3 is state-of-the-art technology for the skilled and experienced driver. The unique patented system with its two-stage valves allows a rebound damping adjustment (comfort) and a compression adjustment (driving dynamics) in the low-speed range while the high-speed range which controls the driving safety, is fixed. In addition, the Variant 3 features Inox-Line Technology, so they stay looking as good as they work. Individual adjustments can be made to the Compression, Rebound, and Height. Furthermore, all adjustment parameters have been approved by the German Technical Control Board (TÜV). This system will lower the car 0.6" to 1.8" front, and 0.6" to 1.6" in the rear.
Retail Pricing for the Variant 3 comes in at $3549 and that does include the EDC Delete. Of course M6 Board members get special pricing, so please PM me or use my contact info below for more information.

For those who plan to do some serious track days with their car, the KW Clubsport is for you.
From KW:
For the new 3-way KW Clubsport coilover suspension, KW has designed special racing dampers with expansion reservoirs. Thanks to the precise adjustment settings, the compression force in the high and low speed range can be easily adjusted independently of one another on the patented two way valve, which is installed in the separate reservoir. The low speed compression damping can be finely adjusted within seven positions and the high speed compression damping offers an adjustment range of 14 clicks.

Driveability can be significantly influenced by the compression adjustment. For example, a harder low speed setting causes directer steering behaviour on the front axle and can counteract the oversteer on the rear axle without negatively effecting the deflection behaviour of the high speed damping range, for instance, when encountering curbs and bumps.

The adjustable rebound valve in the working piston can be reached by an ergonomically shaped rebound adjustment dial which can be comfortably operated from the engine compartment. The rebound force can be finely trimmed for optimal use with 18 clicks. Using little power it offers more comfort, for example, for driving to the race track where it can be increased without effort to improve handling and steering precision, in particular at high velocities.
The Clubsport also features High Performance Linear Race Springs, Adjustable Top Mounts, as well as a weight reduction over conventional systems.

The Clubsport is currently a special order item, and retails at $6100. EDC Cancellation Kit Sold Seperately.
