AP Coilovers

We’re very pleased to announce that Clickable now stocks AP Sport Suspension products for popular BMW models.

As we’ve said before, we’re steadfast in our belief that owning a BMW shouldn’t mean paying a premium for maintenance, and that goes for performance upgrades too. Equally, there’s no reason why sensible prices must mean a poor standard of quality. We feel our job is to seek out and cherry-pick the very best quality products available in the world today, which is why we’ve chosen to offer AP Sport Suspension coilovers and lowering springs.

In late 2015 we air freighted a set of AP Coilovers in from Germany and had them fitted to Project 46, our E46 330Ci M Sport. We’ll be publishing a blog post in the following days that will go into the upgrade in a little more detail, but needless to say the results far exceeded our expectations. For what is marketed as an entry-level coilover package, the APs displayed a very high level of detail in their manufacturing, which translated to its on-road characteristics. There’s clearly been a lot of considered thought that’s gone into the engineering of these coilovers during the development phase. We’re not really meant to go into any detail, but the real reason is because the AP Coilovers are actually just rebranded and repackaged coilovers from one of the most well regarded German coilover manufacturers. In different colours, these coilover kits normally cost twice as much.

AP Coilover kits allow the driver to adjust the height of the car to their own personal preferences, all while leaning on the experience and expertise of the development engineers in Germany. As the damping rates are pre-set for the perfect ride/handling combination on each BMW, all of the guesswork is taken out of the equation. Each coilover features progressive chrome silicon steel springs, pre-load springs (on some variants), adjustable anodised spring perches, hardened chrome piston rods, and corrosion-resistant galvanized bodies. Unlike many cheaper alternatives, these aren’t just an off-the-shelf threaded universal damper and spring combination.

If you’re the type that enjoys a bit of geeky detail, read on. AP’s range of lowering springs are manufactured from cold wound, heat treated chrome silicon steel. It combines exceptional resilience with high tensile strength, allowing the springs to withstand rapid and repeated shocks over a long period of time without their performance diminishing. The progressive spring design means a more supple ride over road undulations, yet body roll is reduced through cornering. Coupled with an attractive blue powder coating, these AP Lowering Springs are equal in quality to springs you would expect to find from other German suspension makers.

Each set of AP Coilovers and Lowering Springs come complete with a TÜV certificate. TÜV are a German organisation that validates the safety and quality of aftermarket vehicle performance parts.

Hi Matt. Thanks for the question, the E30 318is is definitely a popular model. We're hoping to be able to offer some lowering springs for that one soon. Ben

I own a 1991 BMW E30 318is.
You say that you are stocking AP sports suspension "for popular models.
Does this, or will this, include E30s?
