Variant 3 KW coilovers for the Audi A3

Audi A3

Dynamics and comfort, easy handling and increased security at its highest level. KW automotive Ltd. from Fichtenberg/Germany presents the Variant 3 coilover system for the Audi A3.



Utilizing the many years of international racing experience at such pivotal series and races as the 24h of Le Mans, FiA ETCC, GT, DTC and as well as the 24h of Daytona Beach, KW Engineers have successfully mated their racing technology to the street vehicle.


The KW Variant 3 coilover system for the A3 lowers the Audi 30-70 mm on all four corners. The unique and patented valve technology allows for adjustment of both the bump and rebound of the dampers independent of each other. The bump is adjusted via a 14-position dial that affects the low speed characteristics of the damper allowing you to directly tune the steering control of the vehicle. The high-speed range is only slightly affected, allowing for greater control and comfort on rough or uneven surfaces. The rebound adjustment also focuses on the low speed of the damper, allowing greater control in the pitch and roll of the vehicle without creating a harsh ride. With the new Variant 3 coilover systems, KW automotive Ltd. presents impressive proof that the race technology can be utilized effectively on the street.


The new Variant 3 KW coilovers are also available in the new INOX Line. The stainless steel housings offer a new look to the KW lineup while providing an elevated corrosion resistance level in comparison to conventional housings. The new exclusive KW designed threads allow for even easier, longer lasting height adjustment of the new aluminum spring perches. The complete housing assembly and welds are manufactured from the same stainless steel, and then polished for an incredible long-lasting appearance.
