BMW E30 B8 Damper Upgrades
BILSTEIN, the hugely respected suspension manufacturer has released a finely engineered damper upgrade for the retro-tunerâ€™s favourite; the BMW E30, in its many varied guises.
The E30 version of the BMWâ€™s capable 3 series is considered by many to be one of the finest platforms for development, due to its light weight, neutral handling and wide range of tuneable engines . BILSTEINâ€™s B8 damper package helps to significantly enhance the dynamic abilities of the car, working in perfect harmony with either the OEM springs or better still, with any quality aftermarket offerings. The units are set to work particularly well with lowered and uprated spring packages and are available in a variety of fitments to suit the many power-plants available across the E30 range.
The BILSTEIN B8 range is designed for those looking for more damping capability, with improved handling and reduced squat and dive, without ruining everyday ride comfort. Using the very latest in BILSTEIN gas pressure technology and inverted monotube construction, each unit is hand finished in BILSTEINâ€™s German factory to surpass even the most stringent of OEM production standards.
The monotube BILSTEIN dampers in this kit draw heavily from the firmâ€™s motorsport heritage and are vastly superior to the twin-tube design fitted by most manufacturers. After full dyno analysis, each kit application has been signed off by BILSTEIN test drivers and engineers at both the NÃ¼rburgring as well as the industry-leading Papenburg test facility â€“ hence the reason that the BILSTEIN B8 kit offers such a peerless ride and handling balance.
Offering significantly greater service life than the standard part, the BILSTEIN B8 dampers also increase active safety through more efficient braking, better traction and improved handling.
