BILSTEIN B16 Coilover Kit for Audi RS7
BILSTEIN, the respected German manufacturer of dampers and suspension systems has released details of its beautifully engineered enhancement package for Audi’s fire-breathing RS7 super-saloon. As the impressive flagship of the A7 range, this is a car that responds very well to a little chassis tuning and this all-new kit from the German manufacturer provides the ideal way to give the big Audi the grip and poise to match its epic power, without compromising its ride comfort.
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 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 -15mm and -35mm. This is regarded by most engineers to be the most that it is possible to lower the RS7 before handling becomes adversely affected and safety is compromised.
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, the kit was ‘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, these kits carry full TUV approval and 12 months warranty. The complete B16 kit for the Audi RS7 is priced at £1500 + VAT. Incredible value for a peerless chassis upgrade.
