KW introduces iPhone adjustable suspension
Is the new app for KW's Golf R coilover package genius or a step too far?
Basically the idea is that, when you buy the KW DDC ECU coilover kit, you get a free app for your iPhone that allows you to configure the dampers to 'comfort', 'sport' and 'sport+' modes with a swipe of your finger, and to lower the ride height between 5mm and 35mm.
There's also a more advanced mode that allows the user to make more complicated adjustments.
So, iPhone-adjustable suspension: brilliant gadgetry or unnecessary gimmickry? We honestly can't decide...
In what way is this anything other than a stupid idea and marketing gimmick?
Imagine when your phone runs out of battery and it is stuck on 'race mode' and you actually have to drive it. Still, what with 20 inch low profile wheels that this car will have I am sure the ride is ranges from terrible to dreadful anyway.
I am, though, please to see the car in question is in white. And I expect it has privacy glass too.
