Suspension setup per iPhone also for the Audi A6 station wagon:
Perfect driving dynamics at the touch of a button
Fichtenberg (Germany), June 11th 2013 - The adaptive KW DDC ECU coilovers allow in addition to a sporty lowering optionally also to adjust the driving behaviour per iPhone. The KW dampers can easily be adjusted by App to the individual demands and the personal damper setups can be shared with friends by Email. The German TÜV tested adjustment range allows to continuously lower all A6 station wagon (type 4G1) models with quattro or front-wheel drive from 40 to 65 mm. The KW DDC ECU coilover kit made of stainless steel is available with its three adaptive KW modes "Comfort", "Sport" and "Sport+".
The adaptive KW DDC ECU coilovers are the intelligent retrofit solution for Audi A6 drivers who want to get more than a standard sport suspension. Besides the possibility of a German TÜV-tested lowering from 40 to 65 mm, the KW coilovers made of stainless steel offer also three adaptive driving modes for every demand.
One button for Comfort, Sport or Sport+
“The delivery content of the KW DDC ECU coilover kit includes the KW DDC button, that by one touch changes within milliseconds between our recommended damper characteristics 'Comfort', 'Sport' and 'Sport+'” explains KW Product Manager Johannes Wacker. "This allows Audi drivers to switch at any time to get a completely new driving experience." In KW mode "Sport+", the KW dampers give the station wagon a direct and pure driving behaviour, an ideal setup for demanding rides on curvy roads with a lot of load changes. The mode "Sport" is perfect for rides on a highway with long curves; while the "Comfort" mode is ideal on bad way routes. "In 'Comfort' mode, the KW dampers act not only with a comfort-oriented identification, but our suspension control unit automatically adjusts the damping characteristics to the driving speed", says Johannes Wacker.
An App for driving pleasure: KW DDC App
The KW DDC ECU coilovers for the Audi A6 station wagon can optionally be extended with a W-LAN box. This enables for the first time to adjust the stainless steel coilover kit in real time in its damping characteristics individually to the loading condition, driving preferences, or in this case, to the 21-inch RSQ1 SL wheels with a tire size of 245/30R21. "Depending on the setting, the station wagon acts tighter or more comfortable," said KW Product Manager Johannes Wacker. With the KW DDC App, the adaptive dampers of the KW DDC ECU coilover kit can be adjusted continuously in their damping setup at each axle from the maximum "Comfort" identifier with a very soft damping (displayed in the App with 0%) up to Sport+ damper setup (displayed in the App as 100%). The KW DDC App has a vehicle-specific safety relevant control range. "If for example a trailer is pulled with the station wagon, this can easily be considered in the KW App." The five available storage spaces also allow to save up various damping settings for different routes and afterwards to share them with friends via Email.
Alternative: KW dlc airsuspension DDC App
The adaptive KW DDC ECU coilover kits are available for all Audi A6 station wagon and sedan. For the App control for an individual damper setup, an optional KW W-LAN module is required. For drivers of an Audi A6 with standard air suspension (adaptive air suspension), KW has the dlc airsuspension in program. In this case, the standard air suspensions can be lowered by up to 50 mm via App with an iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
