PERFORMANCE AS A LIFESTYLE
Bilstein EVO S available now for the BMW 3 Series (G20) and Volkswagen Golf VIII
Bilstein presented its new Bilstein EVO Performance Line for the first time at the 2019 Essen Motor Show.
Now, the first two offshoots of the new coilover suspension kit can be ordered, with the Bilstein EVO S coilover suspension kit now available for the current BMW 3 Series (G20) as well as the new Volkswagen Golf VIII.
Bilstein says its EVO S coilover kit is a real
all-rounder: chic when stationary and fast on the road.
It has reportedly been developed for maximum performance and maximum comfort, impressing with its high-quality workmanship and cool anthracite look.
Bilstein says that thanks to the further development and internal fixing of the one-piece spring plate, its engineers were able to achieve a lowering of up to 70mm for the BMW 3 Series and 20-35mm at the front and 5-40mm at the rear for the Volkswagen Golf VIII.
Its shock absorber setting, which has been double-tuned in the Bilstein road test, ensures steering behaviour for optimal road feel with a high level of comfort.
Further, Bilstein says that due to the tighter shock absorbers, significantly higher cornering speeds are possible compared to the standard suspension.
Bilstein explains that the EVO S coilover kit is one of three models in the EVO LINE range that will be available for an increasing number of vehicles in 2020, stating that this generally still includes the EVO SE version for vehicles with a standard adaptive suspension and the EVO R for use on the race track.
The Bilstein EVO S for the current BMW 3 Series and Volkswagen Golf VIII is now available in dealerships and workshops and in Bilstein’s online shop at shop.bilstein.com
Also available now for the Volkswagen Golf VIII is Bilstein’s B6 high-performance shock absorber, which Bilstein says stands for improved standard replacement parts and offers a noticeable increase in damping force with the same length as the original. The product is initially available for the 1.5 TSI with electronic damper adjustment, to which it is fully compatible.
