Better fast than hard – the latest AC Schnitzer suspension developments
From the outset, AC Schnitzer has followed its philosophy of transferring technology and design  from motorsport to the road, and over the years has refined this philosophy ever further. In  suspension development in particular, extensive tests with concept cars on the road and track are essential: simulations and models tests are simply not enough. The concept is simple: “Better fast than hard”.

True to this motto, we have turned our hand to the latest 1-series (F20/F21), 3-series (F30/F31) and 4-series (F32), and developed racing and sports suspension kits under the watchful eye of “suspension guru” Manfred Wollgarten.

The new AC Schnitzer sports and racing suspension kits for BMW 1-series, 3-series and 4-series were naturally developed to precisely these specifications.
