M Coupe with KW V3+ Suspension

Hi Colleagues,

My setup (sporty for all day):

Bump Front 7 klicks open Rear 7 klicks open
Bump Front 9 klicks open Rear 12 klicks open

It was coner balanced. The overall wight without driver but fully fueled is 1487kg

Axel / left / right / axel weight
front / 368kg / 394kg / 762kg
rear / 368kg / 357kg / 725kg
sum / 736kg / 751kg / 1487kg

Looks damn nice.

Did you buy the black rims new, or did you paint the original ones?
And what i'd really like to know is, how is the ride with the kw suspension?
Is it a big difference, especially on bumpy roads?

thanks

The rims are the original onces painted in sparkeling graphite gray. With the current bump and rebound setup its as comfortable as the original suspension. For all day perfect. The setup for a racetrack can easiely be adjusted. Takes 15 min to close the rebound a bit which makes it noticeable harder.....less side movement of the car.

You didn't really answered his question. I thinks he meant if it is still as bumpy as with the stock suspension. This is my bigest concern also.

great. would not have expected that
Thinking put the V3 below mine as well.

In the softer setup you are driving, it is less bouncy then the original suspension? Can you share your experience in feeling stock compared V3.

Thanks

You can set it up between extremly soft like riding a camel and intervertebral disks killer. . You will for sure find a setup which fits for you. My setup is more comfortable like the original but not as bumpy as the original.
