BILSTEIN, the respected German suspension manufacturer, has released a version of its much-vaunted BILSTEIN B12 matched spring and damper package for the Audi A3. This new kit will fit all models from the 1.2 right up to the 2.0 TSi (from 2003 onwards).
The BILSTEIN B12 packages consist of four Eibach Pro-Kit springs and four matched BILSTEIN dampers, making for the ultimate ‘real-world’ handling upgrade that balances unparalleled ride quality with exemplary handling and poise. The well proven set-up offers a drop of approximately 30mm all round for an improved, aggressive stance that still offers enough ground clearance for ‘real world’ use.
The BILSTEIN dampers that come with the kit draw heavily from the firm’s motorsport heritage and are carefully matched BILSTEIN B6 units, using BILSTEIN’S pioneering design and gas pressure technology. After full dyno analysis, each kit application has been signed off by BILSTEIN test drivers and engineers at both the Nürburgring as well as the industry-leading Papenburg test facility – hence the reason that the BILSTEIN B12 kit offers such a peerless ride and handling balance.
All four springs have been pre-stressed, shot-peened and tempered, before receiving a two-stage zinc-phosphate and electrostatic epoxy coating for a long and durable life. The kit comes with a comprehensive 2 year, unlimited mileage warranty. As one might expect from BILSTEIN, full TÜV approval for every single application comes as standard.
The combined effect of the complete BILSTEIN B12 kit is a car with less body roll that corners with vastly improved dynamics. Thanks to reduced squat and dive, acceleration and braking characteristics are also enhanced.
