JAZZ, WE CAN! BILSTEIN B14 for Honda Jazz/Fit
Nippy, quick off the mark and sporty - that's the Honda Jazz in town, on the motorway and on the race track. A threaded suspension unit 'Made in Germany' by the well-known and highly experienced company BILSTEIN constitutes the ideal complement to this car and is now available. The BILSTEIN B14 threaded unit from the suspension specialists provides the best combination of sporty performance and improved driving dynamics for all types of road. Regardless of whether the car is driven on bumpy tracks, winding asphalt roads or high-speed stretches, the sporty kit is perfectly suited to the nature of the Honda Jazz.
Once the unit has been fitted, the enhanced driving dynamics and sporty performance of the Honda Jazz are immediately noticeable. The vehicle height can be lowered from approx. 0 to -30 mm, depending on the customer's requirements. Subsequent adjustment of the vehicle height is also no problem. On the front axle, this is set on the shock absorber thread itself. On the rear axle the required height is set via a threaded sleeve. Spring carrier and counter nut are made from aluminium and can be easily adjusted with the units in situ, thanks to the high-grade threaded tube coating. This means the driver can have his very own sporty setting for his customised Honda Jazz and yet retain the car's important suitability for everyday use.
The BILSTEIN engineers in Germany carefully weighed up driving performance, comfort, suitability for everyday use, residual spring travel, performance when driving at the limit, and appearance against one another. Moreover, the characteristic BILSTEIN 'Comfort and Sport' setting was determined in elaborate test drives involving the company's own engineers. The suspension was also tested right to the limit on the test track in Papenburg and on the legendary North Loop of the Nürburgring. The mono-tube inverted technology of the BILSTEIN B14 threaded suspension unit comes straight from motor sports, where it is used on performance cars like the ones from Porsche, Lamborghini, Bugatti and the Nissan GT-R.
