KONI Special Active shocks are the next generation of sport performance dampers for the F30/F31 3-series Xi AWD. The Special Active shocks use KONI's patented FSD technology (Frequency Selective Damping) to variably adjust the shock stiffness based on suspension movement. It's self-adjusting for road conditions! These shocks use a stiff setting on smooth roads or very slow suspension movements (cornering for example) and that gives them more control and better handling. The shocks automatically switch to a softer setting for rapid suspension movements such as a rough road. This keeps the ride comfortable and not jarring or harsh like a shock with fixed valving.Not For Cars With EDC (Electronic Damper Control)
Since all of the technology is mechanical and internal to the shock there are no sensors, cables, electronics, or setup to work on. FSD has been adopted by OE manufacturers like Alfa Romeo, Lamborghini, and Mercedes-Benz and has also won praise in the RV market where shock damping is notoriously challenging (extremely heavy vehicles that must have a plush ride). The FSD technology and KONI lifetime warranty make them similar to other performance shocks from Germany.
The red KONI Special Active shocks replace the previous gold-colored FSD shock sets. Special Active shocks are also available in single shocks instead of only as full sets. They are a direct replacement for the stock F30 Xi shocks and use all of the OEM mounts and bump stops. Special Active shocks can be used with either stock or Sport springs.
