AC Schnitzer sports damper offer - FREE FITTING

Over the past 5 years we have sold approximately 2000 suspension spring kits for 3 and 4 series models, as customers appreciated the reduced body roll, improved appearance and warranty support offered by this entry-level AC Schnitzer suspension kit.

AC Schnitzer Sports suspension (springs and matching sports dampers) takes handling to the next level and has always been available for rear wheel drive cars, but it took AC Schnitzer until this year to release an equivalent damper set for xDrive models. These dampers are now available separately as an upgrade for anyone who already has our spring kit fitted.

We appreciate that this product release is late in the life cycle of F3X models, so as a gesture of goodwill we would like to make the following offer; FREE FITTING for sports dampers to customers that already have AC Schnitzer springs. Having paid once for fitting, you won’t need to pay again to realise the full benefits of AC Schnitzer suspension.

In addition to the handling benefits of the spring kit, AC Schnitzer sports dampers bring the following improvements:
  • Reduced bouncing and skipping on bumps, undulations and rough surfaces
  • Even more agile and responsive with a further reduction in body roll
  • Improved traction in all conditions
  • More communicative, secure and predictable handling.
Ride height is unchanged compared to a car with just the spring kit. For cars with adaptive this function is no longer needed and is deleted. The car will be more comfortable and handle better without it.

Sports damper kit prices:
sDrive passive £1194.42
xDrive passive £1242.39

sDrive adaptive £1507.71
xDrive adaptive £1548.54

These prices include vat. The free fitting offer is currently available at the following dealers:

Revolution Performance in Gateshead – free damper fitting for existing customers who have previously had springs fitted there. If you have the springs but had them fitted elsewhere fitting at Revolution is available at half price. A wheel alignment check is included but any adjustments will need to be paid for.

Deutschtech in Milton Keynes, Rossiters in Norfolk and Stourbridge Automotive – free damper fitting whether you are a previous customer or not. Includes wheel alignment.

We realise that compared to a spring kit a damper upgrade is a more substantial investment so our demo car, a 335d touring with sports suspension, will be available at each dealer for a week for you to try before you buy. The car will be at:

Deutschtech Milton Keynes week commencing 26/11/18 - contact Ben on 01908 579229 services@deutschtech.co.uk


Stourbridge Automotive week commencing 3/12/18 - contact Neil on 01384 377792 enquiries@stourbridgeautomotive.co.uk


Revolution Gateshead week commencing 10/12/18 - contact Glenn on 0845 0023000 glenn@revolution247.com


After Christmas the car will be back with us (Rossiters) and the offer will end 31/3/19 on release of the G20.

I have the Xdrive adaptive set up, which is currently standard.

What would the cost be for both springs and dampers being installed together.

Thanks.

Hi Mike,

The price would depend on where you go for fitting. I'll PM you.

A big difference. Have a look at the customer reviews here:

https://shop.rossiters.co.uk/sports-...rom-2131-p.asp

and here:

https://shop.rossiters.co.uk/sports-...rom-2135-p.asp

The spring kit works as well as a spring kit can but the sports dampers really calm down the bounciness, skipping around on rough surfaces and compared to the stock dampers have much more control and feedback that some can only describe as an "expensive" feel.

If you can get to us or maybe Deutschtech to experience this for yourself in our demo car that would be ideal.

What a fantastic offer!

Changing the suspension is the single best mod I ever did on my 335d so if anyone was thinking about it all I can say is bite Lorcan's hand off on this one!

No, but if you shop around you can usually get a good deal. Where are you located?

Sandal BMW would probably be your best bet from there. Speak to the parts guys for a quote

That demo car is in for a thrashing. Might just book into Gateshead where my springs and ARB were fitted and see if I should get dampers on mine
