About KW DDC Plug & Play Coilovers
The "Plug & Play" solution for BMW models, which have a standard electronic damper adjustment
Today, more and more premium vehicles are being fitted with an adaptive suspension system. Until the KW DDC Plug & Play was introduced to the market, you often had to make compromises when customizing your suspension lowering, and often had to dispense with the active control system and comfort features that you had paid extra for. With the adaptive KW DDC Plug & Play coilover suspensions there are no compromises to be made and you can combine the control of your standard damper system with a step less suspension lowering and the driving dynamics of a KW coilover suspension.
For the first time, the KW DDC coilover kit combines the advantages of a KW coilover suspension with the comfort of the standard damper control. At the push of a button, the driver can choose between the Comfort, Normal and Sport-setup optimized for the KW coilover suspension. In addition, the KW coilover suspension allows individual lowering in the tested adjustment range.
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.
Ideal integration of an OEM factory controls with the advantages of an adaptive KW coilover kit
KW's suspension technology is compatible with the electronics of various automobile manufacturers. The adaptive KW DDC Plug & Play coilover kit is recognized by the factory onboard electronics. All displays and control elements of your vehicle remain fully functional with the advantages of adaptive damping. The stainless steel construction provides additional protection and durability against the elements, salt and dirt. Height adjustability is retained from our unique use of materials for construction.

After 3 other BMW workshops couldn't fix the problem with my M3. SouthernBM sorted it. Excellent to deal with, great communication and customer service.
My first dealing with Southern BM was a pleasant one. I had some springs and shocks installed and Sean was a delight to deal with. Knowledgeable, helpful and offered solutions when not everything went to plan. I would happily recommend them.
Andrew Brien @ Southern BM has been helping me for years with my BMWs - he is extremely astute and has a refreshingly customer-first mentality. I trust him to do the best work and only the best!
Had the rod bearings on my E92 M3 replaced by SouthernBM, very happy with service and price, highly recommended. Many thanks!
The guys are great, definitely take your BMW there.
