AC Schnitzer suspension springs for F30/F31 - 10% off for F30POST members



AC Schnitzer suspension springs for BMW 3 & 4 series (F30/F31/F32/F33/F36)



What's in the box?

AC Schnitzer suspension springs, model specific according to engine type, body and drive system.



What's good about them?

If there is one thing AC Schnitzer excel at, it's suspension. Our performance suspension springs are lower than standard, but more importantly are developed to deliver the ultimate in performance handling from a spring kit. Where mass market spring manufacturers stop we continue, refining and developing each kit with exhaustive testing and development. The result is reduced body roll, less nose dive on braking and bonnet-rise on acceleration, and a reduction in the "floating" feeling that most 3 series suffer from. Combined with a lower stance that emphasizes stock or AC Schnitzer bodywork this is the spring kit that delivers. But don't take our word for it, read what our customers here on F30POST have to say:

“Big improvement! …My car now handles as it should. It's not an Mcar, but for driving on the road it's superb and it's fun. Ride comfort is brilliant with adaptive, ACS springs and non runflats!”

“A big improvement on my car....better turn in, less dive under braking, less roll, comfy and less float..a better all round ride. Well worth the money.”

“With ACS springs IMO, I think you have everything to gain - and nothing to lose (well maybe a few hundred quid )…These springs could (should!) be fitted on cars straight from the factory.”

“My experience was very positive moving to ACS springs on adaptive dampers. Resolved all the sloppy driving problems...Lorcan was very helpful, and I can highly recommend his customer service.”

“Agree with all the positive comments. No regrets at all having the springs fitted, which was about 2000 miles ago.”

“Had these fitted yesterday and have to say that I am very impressed. To those that worry about it riding like the old E90 and being very hard, don't worry. Drove it 170 miles today over back roads and motorways and it is perfect. I echo the thoughts of everyone else in that this is how the car should have been from BMW. A perfect compromise between sporty and comfortable. Thanks Lorcan and AC Schnitzer.”

“...the control is just immense vet there is no harshness even in sport. Others are right, the springs and shocks now work together...It's just amazing, the handling is simply outstanding now. All in all, a great upgrade - recommended to all.”

AC Schnitzer components also offer a number of advantages over other brands, including:
  • Compatibility – our spring kits are fully compatible with BMW adaptive damping and X-drive, and are developed to work in harmony with these systems.
  • Warranty – the BMW warranty on your car remains in force. In addition, AC Schnitzer suspension comes with a 2 year warranty from date of purchase, or is warranted to the end of the BMW GB 3 year warranty period, whichever is longer. Our warranty also covers related BMW components in the unlikely event that our suspension causes a problem.
  • Quality - AC Schnitzer upgrades are developed in-house by our own engineers, thoroughly tested on the specific car they are intended for and TUV approved – your guarantee that everything we make meets or exceeds OEM standards for quality, safety and durability. This also means that under EU Block Exemption rules your BMW dealer cannot exclude or void your car from warranty claims unrelated to the AC Schnitzer component.

OK so what do they cost?

246.85 - 269.55, depending on model, less 10% discount for F30POST members.

What about fitting?

This spring kit can be ordered and fitted at over 30 BMW dealers and 20 independent BMW specialists around the UK. Fitting takes around 3 hours 45 minutes (45AW) at dealer rates including a recommended KDS wheel alignment. Click here for a full dealer list.

Where can I order online?

Click here for further details and to order via our website. To get 10% off enter discount code F30POST at checkout. This discount only applies to this spring kit, not other products.

Is that all I need?

Yes, but unlike most suspension manufacturers we don't stop there. We offer a complete tuning program for the 3 & 4 series including:
  • further suspension upgrades
  • aerodynamic components
  • alloy wheel sets
  • performance upgrades
  • interior accessories
  • sports exhausts

PM or call me on 01485 542000 for further details.

Lorcan,

About to purchase these, but was worried about the warranty issue. Does the springs need to be installed by an authorized BMW dealer/shop? Or can any aftermarket shop install these and the warranty will still be valid? Any info, would help... Thank you.

Lorcan,

Can you confirm the part number for ACS springs, car is 2015 435i xdrive gran coupe with July 2015 build. I read some discussion in UK forums about some suspension components being different for late 2015 builds. Anything of concern?
