The BMW E36 M3 is considered by many to be one of the most competent sports cars ever produced, and maintaining that trademark handling should be a priority for every owner. Made by the leaders of the industry, the Bilstein B6 range of gas shock absorbers are an excellent choice for owners wanting to improve upon handling characteristics of their M3, but still ensuring road-biased comfort at the same time. Compared to the original shocks that were fitted from the factory, the quality of Bilstein’s designs and the components used are in a completely different league. This means that they provide much better shock absorption, and the damping rates are able to be more finely tuned by Bilstein’s engineers who develop these struts at the Nurburgring. For many driving enthusiasts, the Bilstein B6 shock absorber is the perfect upgrade, utilising quality components that make the original factory-fitted shocks look and feel like antiques. The Bilstein B6s are direct-replacement shock absorbers providing increased longevity, and come complete with dust boot and internal bump stop.
The shock absorbers fitted to your car from the factory have a relatively short life before they fall out of their efficiency range and fail to deliver the same damping abilities they once did. Replacing yours will not only overhaul your car’s handling and comfort, but its safety as well.PART NUMBERS
