As winter begins to fade, it is time to think about summer tyres. For many drivers, the required visit to the tyre centre is quite a chore – but the results of fitting Bilstein shock absorbers make up for it, on the drive home! This year, BILSTEIN’s B12 suspension range is a must-have enhancement for those drivers wanting to improve the handling of their vehicle with a sporty suspension kit.
The BILSTEIN B12 suspension range is being expanded to an impressive 993 different kits which covers a total of 1718 car models and their individual variants. Of the 236 applications on offer, 24 per cent – are new to the range, enabling more drivers to take advantage of the benefits of Bilstein handling. This means that Bilstein can now offer suspension kits for BMW 1 Series, 2 Series, 3 Series and 4 Series as well as VW Golf VII, Audi A3 8V, SEAT Leon 5F, and many more.
The range is divided into the variants BILSTEIN B12 Pro-Kit (up to 40 mm lower) and BILSTEIN B12 Sportline (up to 50 mm lower). In both cases, specially shortened BILSTEIN B8 high-performance shock absorbers with mono-tube upside-down and gas-pressure technology are combined with Eibach Performance suspension springs with a progressive character. The individual components have endured elaborate road tests and harmonise perfectly in their sporty design without compromising on comfort. Although summer tyres will need to be swapped in October, to a winter tyre, a sporty suspension can be enjoyed all year round with the Bilstein solution.
