Height adjustable spring systems for BMW 6 series Grand Coupé
The BMW 6 series height adjustable springs offer a variable lowering while retaining the original adaptive or damping-adjustable shocks. The original shock absorbers can continue to operate without any limitation in function. In addition to a sporty appearance the springs also allow improved handling characteristics.
The BMW boys may not have invented the mixture of a large sedan with a coupé-like appearance, but with the 6-Series Grand Coupé they skilfully staged it: so flat, so wide and so determined that there is hardly any air left to move upwards. The suspension specialists at H&R have now developed height adjustable springs for the Bayern-Beau for less air underneath. The original BMW shocks remain in service, and the electronically controlled version also works without restrictions. Nevertheless, the vehicle height is now adjustable steplessly, with sufficient residual spring travel for close-to-original driving comfort. At the front axle, the lowering is between 30 and 45 millimetres, at the rear 25 to 40 mm are feasible.
The perfect position of the wheels in the wheel arches enhances the look of the Grand Coupé. From a technical point of view, the vehicle's centre of gravity moves downwards. The lower body roll and a more direct steering response ensure even more driving pleasure. H&R promises further refinement with "TRAK+" wheel spacers for millimetre-precise alignment of aftermarket and standard wheels on the wheel arch edges.
The secret to such success? To put it simply, the technology H&R employs to develop cutting-edge suspension systems for competition use is the very same used to develop innovative suspension components for street-driven cars. For the eighth year straight now, H&R has been the official supplier for the DTM teams of Mercedes. In addition, H&R maintains extensive involvement in several touring car, GT and Monoposto racing series. Not to mention the Formula 1- where each circuit may have its own demanding characteristics. In the harsh environs of competition, H&R is able to test new materials and innovate production technologies. Those can help racing teams adapt to changing road conditions accurately and efficiently.
All of H&R’s products are 100% made in Germany, and meet ISO 9001 Quality Assurance Standards as well as the rigid safety standards of the German TUV. In addition to the finest-quality materials and state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques, H&R prides itself in its ability to remain flexible in product development and production. Whether in motorsport competition or OE manufacturing, flexibility is key to fulfilling the many requirements of the industry today. Simply put, H&R is more than just a suspension manufacturer. It is a company whose core philosophies are innovation, quality and performance.
