KW Coilover Kit Variant 3 (V3) for the E30 3 Series, Sedan, Coupe and Convertible with RWD
It's here! Finally, a 2-way dampening adjustable coilover kit that is fully bolt-on for the classic E30 3 series and doesn't require cutting or modifying your stock strut assemblies. KW has reproduced a forged spindle that comes complete and assembled to a 51mm front strut tube, ready to install on the car. The V3 takes all of the features of the more basic V1 kit and adds full dampening adjustment for precise tune-ability of your E30's suspension, and comes pre-set and ready-to-go solution out of the box. The V3 ride height adjustment allows the same wide range of ride height and come with the dampening adjustments pre-set a balanced street ride on your E30.

This E30 V3 kit is long overdue, and as anyone familiar with BMW tuning knows, KW has a strong reputation for delivering long-term reliability. They refused to release a coilover solution until the proper design could be achieved. After many years of development and testing, they've finally paired the corrosion-resistant stainless steel V3 "inox-line" shock design for the non-M E30 RWD platform. Variant 3 coilovers are KW’s premium-level model that allow you to dial in the perfect ride height (either based on looks or performance reasons) and tune the dampening to match your conditions -- either for streeet driving or scrutineering better lap times on track.
Used both by BMW in their "M Performance" suspensions for many newer BMWs as well as custom tuners like Alpina and Oettinger, and its not surprising why the KW V3 is the go-to for high performance street driving. KW has a deep wealth of knowledge and experience from numerous racing relationships, as well as constant testing at the Nurburgring and on their own 7-post suspension "shaker" rig. KW has poured their comprehensive expertise and knowledge into the KW Variant 3 Coilover Kit, and combined with the E30 chassis it's the ultimate bolt-on street and track suspension.
The dirt-resistant trapezoid thread and composite collar mean that you’ll always be able to quickly and easily adjust your E30's ride height when needed, regardless of how many years or seasons they’ve been installed. Adjusting ride height is a simple task, with one-piece composite height adjusters on the front dampers and height adjusters sitting either above or below the rear rings.

I am extremely pleased with this order. The price was competitive and your expedited delivery charge was surprisingly low. I needed the part fast and you exceeded my expectations. I especially appreciate your gentleman who over the phone ensured me that the part was indeed in stock and would be shipped immediately.
I’ve never dealt with a true “race” shop like BW and I really have enjoyed the experience. I always feel like I’m getting the best advice, and suggestions for true race car set up. Your technical expertise on even the minute details of building race cars is really impressive, and some I value greatly...
I just can't express enough how impressed I am with you guys. Thanks so much for the great service from start to finish, and always done with a smile and as professional as possible.
