Does your KW Var.2 go Pssstt?

Hey all,

Just wondering for those that have KW Var.2 coilovers installed, when you go over sharp small humps, do u hear a pssstt from your coilovers? Its like when there is a sharp compress of your dampers, they would make the "psstt" sound?

My car is a E92 335i.

Cheers and thanks for any feedback.

Yes, I think it's a pretty cool sound. Reminds me of that seat tester at Ikea.

I don't have KWs, but I do have PSS9s and they do the same thing. All gas shocks I have used have made this sound during large compression at low speeds--it's normal, so don't worry about it

All of my coilovers make that sound, or any car that I've been in with aftermarket shocks for that matter.

If you guys are looking for KW coilovers, we are a master dealer for them, so let me know if you guys have any questions about it!

thanks.

Cool guys!

I thought there was something wrong with the installation. Never had that sound when i was using KW Var.1 on my E46 325ci, though.
