BILSTEIN announces DampTronic® shock absorbers and suspensions for BMW M3 and M4

In the current models BMW M3 and M4, a 431 HP biturbo inline six-cylinder engine is perfectly paired with the suspension. In contrast to the basic models, the sporty top line models from the 3 Series and 4 Series feature a completely independent axle design. In addition to the standard suspension, customers can also choose the adaptive M suspension, which adapts to the current road conditions within milliseconds. To ensure driving remains enjoyable even after many miles, BILSTEIN announces a new standard replacement shock absorber, the BILSTEIN B4 DampTronic, the even stronger B6 DampTronic and the high-end coilover suspension B16 DampTronic at the automechanika 2016. All products are the perfect plug-and-play solution and support all functions of the factory-installed active suspension.

The BILSTEIN B6 DampTronic mono-tube gas-pressure shock absorbers will offer even more damping force than the already available OE level shock absorber BILSTEIN B4 DampTronic. Following the principle “better than the original”, it delivers even better performance and durability. For BMW M3 and M4 without active suspension, the conventional high performance shock absorber BILSTEIN B6 has already been available for some time, just like the coilover suspensions BILSTEIN B16 and Clubsport. In addition, the suspension specialist from Ennepetal in Germany also announces an active variant for vehicles with the adaptive M suspension: the BILSTEIN B16 DampTronic. The tenfold adjustment option of bump and rebound stage, many lightweight components, and the adjustment range that is suitable for approval are a dream. This means no new approval is required in case of changes.
