Cool KW Releases iPhone App for Remote Control of DDC ECU Coilovers

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
The KW DDC (Dynamic Damper Control) ECU coilovers remove the pain of getting out of the car and adjusting it manually. You can get the software from iTunes for free! You can adjust your coils with your IPhone. It has 3 settings (comfort, sport and sport+) or you can fine tune it yourself...

“When our W-LAN module is connected, the damper characteristics can easily and individually be adjusted. With the push of a button’ the driver’s set-ups can also be shared with friends via Email,” said KW’s Product Manager Johannes Wacker. Up to five separate setups can be stored at any one time.


A list of all availble cars is under www.kwsuspension.de

I'm still grasping the idea that you can adjust with your iPhone. Wow.

looks similar to what Tein had some years ago with an optional EDFC kit that allowed for remote shock adjustments via a little electronic panel mounted in your dash. you could select from a few pre-programmed memory settings as well.

using a smartphone app instead of a remote panel is a pretty nice touch though.

That's awesome! Not really blown away since the technology has existed for years but I'm glad they are finally rolling it out.
