Bilstein releases new coilover options for Audi A1

German suspension manufacturer Bilstein has released two enhancement packages for VAG’s popular Audi A1.The kits are designed to provide original equipment levels of fit, finish and ride quality, coupled with significant improvements in handling. Both have 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 -30mm and -50mm. Bilstein says this is regarded by most engineers to be the most that it is possible to lower a vehicle before handling becomes adversely affect and safety is compromised.

The B14 kit comes with a pre-set damping rate, allowing the owner to fine-tune the ride height and stance to suit their own needs, whilst the B16 kit represents the pinnacle of suspension performance. Each damper unit has nine 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 truly allows you to have two cars in one.

As with all Bilstein performance products, both of these kits have been extensively proven in Bilstein’s extensive laboratory set-up, but more importantly, at the Papenburg test facility, Bilstein’s research centre. Here, both kits were tested by real 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.

Both kits carry full TUV approval and 12 months warranty.
