Ã–hlins Release BMW E90 Road and Track Suspension Kit
Respected suspension maestro Ã–hlins has released the new benchmark in road-friendly, track-ready suspension for the BMW E90. The near-perfect balance of Munichâ€™s super-saloon is the perfect recipient for the unique features of the Ã–hlins kit, which finally solves the puzzle of how to achieve a truly comfortable ride from competition-quality units.
Build quality is exceptional, with carbon-steel bodies and flawlessly anodised detailing. Ã–hlinsâ€™ pioneering dual-flow valve technology means that despite their light weight and slim-line profile, the Road and Track kit responds to road undulations in exactly the same manner as a traditional Macpherson strut set-up. The use of needle valves in the damping unit also means that even when the oil gets hot after a hard session on the circuit or â€˜Bâ€™ road, the damping rate is kept absolutely consistent, even when the viscosity of the damping fluid changes.
Height adjustment is achieved by simple adjustment of the precision-machined threaded body and damping and rebound are tweaked simultaneously in one simple twist of the easily accessible knurled knob; allowing the supermarket run to be clicked off with limo-style smoothness and after a few seconds of adjustment, track days to be dispatched with racecar precision.
This unparalleled quality helps to explain Ã–hlins 2 year warranty and thanks to their racing heritage, each unit is fully serviceable and even upgradeable, should requirements or car specs change.
