Eibach launch New VW Passat Estate Chassis Upgrades
Eibach, the respected German suspension manufacturer, has launched an impressive range of dynamic enhancements for Wolfsburg’s latest lithe load-lugger; the Passat Estate.
As the official accessory supplier to Volkswagen DE, Eibach has unrivalled access to chassis and technical data for all VW models, resulting in a kit that offers OEM levels of fit and finish, but combined with substantial improvements in handling and control over the showroom model. Naturally, all components come with full TUV approval and allow the new Passat to be all things to all people. Hardy load-lugger one minute – and then ‘B’ road weapon the next.
The first enhancement available is the Pro-Kit. These pre-stressed springs lower the car by around 30mm, lowering the centre of gravity and endowing the VW with an aggressive stance. Thanks to Eibach’s unparalleled research and development, these springs feature a unique ‘progressive’ coil that offers a softer section for everyday driving and commuting, combined with a stiffer, more precise section further up the spring to equip the car with precise road holding and cornering. This seamless progression offers true versatility, in-keeping with the car’s purpose. The springs have been carefully configured to work with the factory dampers but may also be ordered with uprated dampers as part of the Eibach ‘Pro-System’ for the ultimate in ride and handling. They also benefit from a class leading 5 year warranty.
For drivers seeking the ultimate in dynamics and aesthetics, Eibach also offer a wide selection of Pro-Spacers. These are precision manufactured, hub-centring spacers which are machined from aerospace grade aluminium. Available in a wide variety of widths, they are the perfect way to increase the track measurement of the car for enhanced steering feel and ‘turn in’.
