KW coilovers Varient 3
 
If anyone has any experience with these coilovers can you tell me how they feel?

I have x5 48 without the adaptive drive option & I plan on daily driving and better handling ...

Do you know which version to buy with AD, seems like they have a with or without version if you have EDC, which I believe only the X5M has?

I put them on a 06 charger daytona I had. They were great. I did have some minor issue in adjusting them, but other than that they provided great handling!

Adaptive drive = EDC

That's what I originally thought, but whenever I searched it always returns X5M results, thanks for the confirmation.

The Adaptive drive is used in the normal non-///M vehicles.
EDC (electronic Damper Control) is only for ///M vehicles.

I think they are technically different from each other.

You plan to put them on an X5 or the 135i?

You are right they don't talk about adaptive drive ... they only stated EDC? I don't know why?

Now I am in touch with their technical support in Germany ... give me your email address and I can keep you posted in my emails. Perhaps we can help each other to reach the right decision.

I sent you PM, looking at them for the X5.

I sent a reply already.

one member on the Xbimmers forum has installed KWV3 on an X5 M & he has placed a thread about it. He was very happy about it & his car should be provide with the EDC. If I find it I will place the link here.

Already placed the order for V3 last week.

Adaptive Drive = EDC + ARS

Both X5's (///M and non-M) have AD (AD optional on non-M X5 right now).

Tuning of the EDC is different and so are the EDC shocks for each.

ARS is very similar if not nearly identical. Not 100% sure about tuning of ARS though.

After two months driving on KW, I am very happy about the setup. Much better handling / control, less body roll and better appearance. I am still using the factory setup without adjustment.
