      Hey guys,

      Not sure if anyone has seen the DDC setup from KW but damn it would be nice if we could install it on our MKV R's.

      I emailed them already... awaiting reply. I suspect its going to be extremely expensive for the MKV since we don't have the needed controller / wiring.

      yeah, we will need the full kit, not just the drop in version which integrates into the already existing controller.

      According to KW there is a kit for the MKV R32 in Europe ... I'm working with them on pricing for a US kit. Details to be forthcoming.

      These would be cool with a linear spring for the occasional track day person, otherwise stellar choice.

      I know this is an old thread. I can help any of you interested in the R32 kit. Send me an IM, give me a call or e-mail me and I will get you a quote.

      The kits are still drop shipping from Germany, takes about 2-3 weeks delivery time.

      Let's break this down.

      KW - a favorable aftermarket system for our R's

      Adjustable - so there a no comprimises that need to be made between comfort and response for those of us that DD and want to have performance an adjustment away

      Adjustable via app with no getting out and making sure you dial in each individual setting per shock...

      Lets see the price for this magical mechanical marvel

      (Now if the DSG and ECU could be controlled like this as well...) I know the DSG can be via a key-fob, but still.

      You guys also know KW have an HLS system?

      It allows you to "lift" your coilovers at the touch of a button when needing to clear speed bumps etc .

      Also available for the R32 with any KW coilover set. expensive and KW's don't really go that low anyway?
