The BMW M4 CS stands for cultivated high performance on racetracks and country roads. But everybody knows that the better of the good is the greatest enemy. That’s why the suspension experts at BMW Motorsports technology partner H&R have taken measurements and developed a set of height adjustable springs. They allow the vehicle to get lower variably while retaining the BMW original shock absorbers!
The forged wheels on the front axle are 25 to 40 millimetres lower in the wheel arches. On the rear axle between 20 and 35 millimetres.
The visual gain is pleasing, but you can also “experience” it. The lower centre of gravity and the H&R-typical spring characteristics pay off. In terms of driving dynamics through a particularly “stable lateral position” and even more “bite” when turning in. The adjustable springs for the BMW M4 CS are of course available with a type approval.
The H&R sport springs, which are available for the CS version as well as for the M4 in the basic version, the GTS and all other models of the 4-series, are still available. Even more performance is promise “Trak+” wheel spacers, which H&R offers in various dimensions. This means that standard and aftermarket wheels can be aligned to the fender edges with millimetre precision.
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.
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. All of which can help racing teams adapt to changing road conditions accurately and efficiently.
Every sport-oriented motorist can experience the result of these efforts! Suspension components “Made by H & R” enjoy appreciation from the international trade press and from customers all over the world.
Car manufacturers such as Porsche, AMG Mercedes, Volkswagen, MINI and BMW also rely on the know-how and flexibility of H & R for various special models. But not only sporty drivers, who had suspension components like height adjustable springs for the BMW M4 CS installed to optimize their vehicles, appreciate the qualities of the H & R products.
Simply put, H&R is more than just a suspension manufacturer — it is a company whose core philosophies are innovation, quality and performance.
