From now on we’ve got height adjustable H&R springs BMW 5 series available in our online shop.
These springs offer a variable lowering while retaining the original adaptive or damping-adjustable shocks. The original shock absorbers can be further used without any limitation in function.
H&R springs BMW 5 series enable a lowering between 40 and 55mm at the front axle, at the rear 30 to 50mm lowering is possible.
Product benefits of height adjustable H&R springs BMW 5 series:
- Sporty Appearance
- Lowered center of gravity
- Individual lowering on the original adaptive or electronic adjustable shock absorbers
- The original damping adjustment of the shocks maintains without limitation
- Improved handling characteristics
- With approval
- No alignment of the original electronic system necessary
As usual, the suspension professionals from the Sauerland region have once again done a great job: The height-adjustable H&R springs BMW 5 series are now available for almost the entire model range of the popular BMW 5 Series F10/F11. This applies to vehicles with and without X- drive as well as to sedans or Touring, petrol or diesel and most importantly, also to vehicles with electronic damper control.
As a supplier to the BMW Motorsport team in the DTM, it is almost \”a must\” for H&R to elicit even more dynamics from the models from Munich. The original BMW shocks remain in service, even the electronically controlled version works without restrictions, it is not necessary to resign this option.
Nevertheless, the vehicle height can now be infinitely adjusted, with sufficient residual spring travel for near-series driving comfort. The lowering at the front axle is between 40 and 55 millimetres, at the rear 30 to 50mm lowering is possible.
Optically the cars win by a perfected stand of the wheels in the wheel arches. From a technical point of view, the vehicle\’s centre of gravity is moving downwards and handling is noticeably more dynamic. The body\’s lower tendency to roll, better steering behaviour and a noticeably more confident cornering position ensure even more driving pleasure.
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, H&R has been named the 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 that can help racing teams adapt to changing road conditions accurately and efficiently.
Clearly, H&R holds an advantage when it comes to developing competition suspension components, and it is this same flexibility and attention to detail that allows H&R to design and manufacture components like springs, shock absorbers and height-adjustable coil-overs for high-performance street use. Indeed, one of the greatest accomplishments an automotive component manufacturer can attain is to become an Original Equipment (OE) supplier for the automotive industry—and H&R has reached the highest echelon in the industry by supplying precision suspension components to some of the world’s greatest automobile manufacturers. For example, Porsche equips its ultra high-performance Carrera GT as well as its 996 & 997 GT II and GT III with H&R components, while Volkswagen uses them on the Golf R32, the fastest Golf ever. And recently, Mercedes Benz chose H&R suspension components for its CLK supercar, the CLK DTM AMG. Directly derived from Mercedes’ DTM race car, this special model is limited to a production run of 100 units, and with 580-bhp, is one of the fastest production street cars in the world.
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.
