BILSTEIN VW Golf Mk 6 B12 Pro-Kit Chassis Upgrades
BILSTEIN, the respected German suspension manufacturer, has released a version of its much-vaunted BILSTEIN B12 matched spring and damper package for VW’s iconic Mk6 Golf.
The BILSTEIN B12 packages consist of four Eibach Pro-Kit springs and four matched BILSTEIN dampers, making for the ultimate ‘real-world’ handling upgrade that balances unparalleled ride quality with exemplary handling and poise. The well proven set-up offers a drop of approximately 30-35mm. If preferred, the BILSTEIN B12 kit can also be ordered with Eibach ‘Sportline’ springs which will lower the recipient vehicle by around 50-55mm, creating a truly aggressive stance combined with unparalleled handling.
The BILSTEIN dampers that come with the kit draw heavily from the firm’s motorsport heritage and are carefully matched BILSTEIN B8 units, using BILSTEIN’S pioneering inverted monotube design and gas pressure technology, which is vastly superior to the twin-tube design fitted by most manufacturers. After full dyno analysis, each kit application has been signed off by BILSTEIN test drivers and engineers at both the Nürburgring as well as the industry-leading Papenburg test facility – hence the reason that the BILSTEIN B12 kit offers such a peerless ride and handling balance.
The springs have been pre-stressed, shot peened and tempered, before receiving a two-stage zinc-phosphate and electrostatic epoxy coating for a long and durable life. The kit comes with a comprehensive 2 year, unlimited mileage warranty. As one might expect from BILSTEIN, full TÜV approval for every single application comes as standard.
The combined effect of the complete BILSTEIN B12 kit is a car with less body roll that corners with vastly improved dynamics. Thanks to reduced squat and dive, acceleration and braking characteristics are also enhanced.
