KW Dynamic Damping Control ECU
The KW DDC coilovers are part of the KW iSuspension program - the intelligent suspension solution. They combine the advantages of an adaptive damping system with a vehicle-specific aftermarket suspension solution. There are two versions offered: the KW DDC ECU with the option of using KW's App control, and the KW DDC Plug & Play for selected vehicle models with factory adaptive suspension.
KW DDC “Plug & Play” Coilovers
The “Plug & Play” solution for VW models, which have a standard electronic damper adjustment.
KW also offers you the opportunity utilize the OEM factory interior damper controls of your sports car to control the KW DDC Plug & Play coilovers. Applications are available for: VW Scirocco, VW Golf IV, VW Passat, BMW 3-series and other models.
The best part is: Except for the replacement of the adaptive factory OEM suspension with the KW DDC Plug & Play coilovers, there are no further conversion steps or even modifications of the stock wiring. The KW DDC Plug & Play coilover simply plug into the factory plugs for the adaptive suspension. The user is able to select the different settings with their factory interior controls of their vehicle.

KW DDC ECU
The adaptive KW DDC ECU coilovers allow adjustment within the tested lowering range. The dirt-resistant trapezoid thread and the composite collar allow years of accessible adjustability and ease of use. Lowering can be done via the composite spring collar on the shock body or on the height adjustable rear perch in the rear of the vehicle. No matter where in the world, sporty drivers, car manufacturers and refiners rely on our KW technology “Made in Germany”.
Each KW coilover kit is produced at our headquarter located in Fichtenberg, Germany. During the production process each kit is subjected to extensive stress tests and must meet the high quality standards set by KW management and surpass OEM quality. Over 4600 applications come supported with a multi-year warranty. A 5 year warranty is provided when the kit is installed at one of KW’s specialist dealers. Currently KW DDC ECU coilovers with App-control are available for Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Volkswagen and Range Rover Evoque.

In Sport+ mode, the adaptive KW dampers give every car an unadulterated driving behavior. A setup which is ideal for demanding rides on twisty roads with lots of load changes. The Sport mode however, is perfect for driving on the highway with long curves; while the Comfort mode is the ideal for traveling on poorly developed country roads. In Comfort mode, the suspension adjusts automatically to the respective driving situation.

Structure and function of a KW coilover kit
A KW coilover with its 100 percent corrosion resistant stainless steel strut housings can be height adjusted at all times. With our dirt resistant trapezoid thread and durable composite height adjuster collar adjustment is possible after many years of driving pleasure.
In contrast to anodized adjustable spring seats made of aluminum, at KW we use a durable polyamid composite collar with a stainless steel insert. So even with the influence from dirt particles, such as brake dust or sand grains, the polyamide composite collar will not be damaged.
