There are more news for BMWs concerning ride quality and performance improvement delivered from suspension systems. This time the provider is Bilstein and the BMW model in question is the Z3.
Called the Bilstein B12, this kit will deliver the ultimate “real-world” driving experience to Z3 owners.
The B12 package from the German suspension maker contains four Eibach Pro-kit springs mated with Bilstein dampers that not only improve drive quality, but also lower the vehicle by 30 mm both front and back. This kit derived from Bilstein’s B8 unit and the motorsports heritage shows in the fine craftsmanship and fine enginnering of the dampers. Each kit was tested and signed off by Bilstein’s test drivers and engineers.
Two kits are available, depending on the BMW Z3 version you have. For the 1.8 and 1.9 engine variants, the normal Bilstein B12 kit will be installed. A heavier version is available if you sport a 2.0, 2.2, 2.8 or 3.0 liter engine. For the lucky few that drive a BMW Z3 M with a 3.2 liter engine, a special upgraded damper is provided.
