The KW Variant 3 is among the best coilovers available for the MINI regardless of price. They offer adjustable compression and rebound dampening. They are well worth considering on your short list for high end coilovers when its time to replace or upgrade worn out suspension on your MINI. Compression- and rebound adjustment As far it is vehicle-specifically possible, the rebound damping is adjusted by a spindle at the end of the piston rod. Mainly, the traction phase (rebound) controls car body vibrations and also influences handling and comfort in the low-speed damping range. By using the traction phase adjustment, the vehicle can be adapted to the requirements of the driver. Moreover the driving behavior can be regulated from comfortably rolling to sporty and tense with improved road holding characteristics.

The compression phase adjustment is carried out at the lower end of the shock absorber via our patented multi-purpose valve. The large number of pre-set parameters of this valve allows for a wide range of adjustment for individual use. The unique low-speed compression adjustment significantly distinguishes this technology from any other. In this compression range, the driving behavior of the vehicle is drastically influenced. An increase of the damping power supports the vehicle already during compression and therefore avoids rolling and pitching. The directional stability is significantly improved. State-of-the-art technology from motor sports for more performance on the road. The separate and independently adjustable rebound- and compression damping allows for an individual suspension setup for different uses and preferences.

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.

Customers' comments

Just received my most recent order from you guys and couldn't be happier. Not just with the trim pieces I ordered, but with the customer service and speed at which my products arrived.

Your online department to ask questions, has always responded quickly(even the dumb questions), and for a new MINI owner, that is truly appreciated.

This was my third order from OutMotoring, and look forward to many more. But since I have owned my 2014 Clubman for less than 2 months, my wife has put a moratorium on my purchasing more MINI accessories for a bit...

Sorry I can't be at the Dragon this year, but look forward to meeting you fine folks down the road.

We are an overseas customer in Perth Western Australia and can only recommend both the service and the quality of products supplied through Out Motoring. My wife has just received her 2nd mini an electric blue F56 with black roof named "Fabian" dont ask me why but thats how they sell cars in Australia (all have names) We received several items recently and have been installed quickly and easily. Thanks for shipping overseas and look forward to buying parts and accessories to add to the looks of the car.Even my good lady wife was impressed
