Bilstein B12 Sportline Suspension Kit With B8 Shock Absorbers
The Bilstein B12 Sportline Suspension Kit is an all-in-one solution to sharp handling fast road suspension. Combining Bilstein B6/B8 dampers with an Eibach Sportline spring kit, this will lower your car approximately 30-45mm, and give your car much sportier handling whilst still retaining good ride comfort.
- Aggressive lowering
- Much enhanced handling
- Retains good ride comfort
The Bilstein B12 Sportline Suspension Kit is a package of Bilstein's B6 or B8 dampers (depending on application) and an Eibach Sportline Lowering Spring Kit. This combination gives more lowering and sportier handling than the B12 Pro-Kit, but still offers good comfort.
Eibach Sportline Lowering Spring Kits are designed for drivers who want sharper handling than a Pro-Kit can offer. 30-45mm lowering is on offer. While these definitely offer firmer handling than the Pro-Kit they're still not crashy or unpleasant to drive which is quite the achievement.
Lowering the car gives enhanced body control through corners with reduced body roll. Reduced body-roll means better grip from all four tyres, for a more controlled confident feeling in corners. As these springs are lower and stiffer than the Pro-Kit they offer even flatter handling. Firmer springs also contribute to better handling under braking and acceleration.
Bilstein's B6 and B8 range of dampers are monotube in most cases. This gives them a smooth and controlled ride, and means they are less prone to heat fade. Bilstein also develop these for real world road conditions. Pairing an uprated damper with lowering springs means you get both better response on compression from the spring, and a more composed rebound from the uprated dampers. This helps keep the ride of the car smooth and controlled. When fitting very low springs, Bilstein tend to recommend their specific short-stroke range of dampers which is what is on offer here. These use a special shortened piston-rod which helps stop the suspension bottoming out.
The B12 Sportline Kits are the best handling kit this side of high end coilovers. While we wouldn't expect these to be uncomfortable for daily driving, the B12 Pro-Kit range offers handling more tuned towards comfort.
On vehicles where sports suspension is a factory option (e.g. Audi S-Line, BMW M-Sport, Mercedes AMG-Line) the lowering amount shown is for vehicles without. If your vehicle has optional sports suspension you will have to deduct the amount the vehicle is already lowered by. This can be up to 30mm.
Lowering amounts mentioned are generic figures for the whole range. Actual lowering available for your car can vary.
