BILSTEIN, the respected German manufacturer of dampers and suspension systems has released details of its beautifully engineered enhancement package for the Nissan 350Z. With this version of Nissan’s fabled ‘Z’ series now hugely attainable, many owners are looking to improve the ride and handling of their cars, future-proofing them for years to come. This kit provides the ideal way to give the 350Z the grip and poise to match its considerable grunt and fits both the Coupe and Convertible variants.
Suitable for both UK and JDM versions of the car, the B16 kit offers OEM levels of fit, finish and ride quality, coupled with significant improvements in handling. Everything included in the kit has been designed and produced entirely in-house in BILSTEIN’s cutting-edge German production facilities.
Thanks to precision-machined threaded steel bodies, the BILSTEIN kits offer 20mm of ride height adjustment from a lower starting point, which equates to a drop of between -30mm and -50mm. This is regarded by most engineers to be the most that it is possible to lower the Nissan before handling becomes adversely affect and safety is compromised.
The BILSTEIN B16 kit represents the pinnacle of suspension performance, allowing the owner to fine-tune the ride height and stance to suit their own needs. Each damper unit has ten steps of adjustment, with bump and rebound being changed together in a carefully pre-set ratio to ensure that the car retains impeccable manners. With a damping range that offers either limo smoothness, track control or indeed, anything in-between, the BILSTEIN B16 kit truly allows you to have two cars in one.
As with all BILSTEIN performance products, this kit has been extensively proven. Not only in BILSTEIN’s extensive laboratory set-up, but more importantly, at the Papenburg test facility, where BILSTEIN have their unparalleled research centre. Here, both kits were ‘shaken down’ by real, live test drivers, to ensure that these upgrades don’t just work well in a computer simulation, but can offer ride quality and peerless handling whether fully loaded or on the poorest of surfaces.
As you might expect from the World’s leading original equipment manufacturer, the kits carries full TUV approval and 12 months warranty. The complete B16 kit for the Nissan 350Z retails at £1400.00+ VAT. Incredible value for such epic heritage and performance.
