V-MAXX has released details of its lowered spring offering for BMW’s under-rated (and currently under-valued!) E38 7 Series range (’94 -on). Two different spring set ups are available, to suit both ride-levelling and standard damper equipped vehicles, meaning there is bound to be a set for every enthusiast out there. These kits are a direct replacement for each model’s factory springs and have been designed to work effectively with the OEM dampers – or any quality aftermarket offerings. Fitting every model ever sold, it’s a great way to get any big Seven sitting more aggressively and handling better. As many early examples of these cars are now almost two decades old, it’s probably not a bad idea to freshen the old units up, anyway! The kits are suitable for all 728, 730, 740, 750 and 725 TDS standard wheelbase versions.
The V-MAXX kit springs draw heavily from the manufacturers’ impressive experience of all BMW models. Wound from the very same steel that V-MAXX uses for its competition springs, these are pre-stressed to prevent sagging, before being shot-peened for tempering and then electrostatically powder coated for a long and happy life. Fitting precisely as per the OE parts, these springs fit quickly and easily and lower the recipient E38 by around 35mm. As you would expect from a product of this quality, each kit comes with full TUV certification.
Using innovative progressive winding technology, each spring offers two distinct characteristics within the one component. A softer, more compliant area for riding around on every day, as well as commuting and low speed driving – and then a stiffer section which is brought into play when the car is thrown into corners at greater angles of lean. It means the BMW can be comfortable and cosseting when required, or focussed and precise when the conditions dictate.
