[thumbnail]A few years ago, we introduced Brian Dodd’s French Widow Maker on our blog, his Renault Clio V6. The fact that the Brit sold his BMW M3 CSL (E46 model) to buy himself a Renault Clio V6 caused quite some buzz on our social media channels. Although, all the screaming and yelling didn’t stop Brian to deliver some fresh updates for his Widow Maker. Again! “When I say that I sold my CSL for the Clio, they always think I’m crazy,” smiles Brian. “But unfortunately, many people don’t know what kind of ‘sporty monster‘ such a V6 Clio really is”. With the installed KW Coilover Suspension Variant 3 Kit, everything remained the same on the Renault, at first glance. “The V3 is simply a dream. I have now only adjusted the dialed in damper setup a little bit because I changed the rims and tires since last time.” Brian, who installed a KW Clubsport kit in his Cooper S JCW GP and a KW Variant 3 in his BMW M3 CSL back in the day, “I’ve adjusted a little bit of the compression and rebound setup to make it a bit more sporty for my Country Roads Adventures.” The special thing about our KW Variant 3 suspension kit, compared to conventional aftermarket coilover suspension kits, isn’t our high quality, state-of-the-art materials for the struts and housings of the dampers, in our point of view. Already in 2002, KW Automotive set a new benchmark for the global aftermarket industry. We have been the first manufacturer to innovate the production of shocks with stainless steel bodies and struts in inox-line quality. The truth of success of our coilover kit is the handcrafted and fully adjustable shocks, which we developed exclusively for the KW V3. KW adapted its leading Motorsports technology for daily driving. At a certain level, you can adjust the compression and rebound stage dampening separately. And the best feature, you don’t even need to sacrifice the ride comfort. Basically, the adjustable bump and rebound valves are made up of several valves: adjustable low-speed valves and, already in our production in Fichtenberg, preconfigured, not further fine-tunable, high-speed damper valves.
