Superior performance – The B12 sport suspension kit

Performance²: Combining top quality from BILSTEIN and EIBACH

Ennepetal/Essen, November 28, 2011 – BILSTEIN and EIBACH will be unveiling their new B12 sport suspension kit at the Essen Motor Show 2011. Under the Performance2 formula, the B12 combines components from the two "best brands" BILSTEIN and EIBACH in a single product. The B12 is available in B12 Pro-Kit and B12 Sportline versions. The product line brings together four specially adapted high-performance BILSTEIN B8 shock absorbers with high-grade EIBACH springs. The result is a top quality sport suspension unit featuring exclusive "Made in Germany" technologies. The B12 offers maximum sports performance and driving pleasure plus high degrees of comfort and safety. As visitors enter the event through Entrance South, they will be given a visual treat in the form of a BMW 3 Series featuring exclusive Performance2 paintwork. At the BILSTEIN booth a black Ford Mustang kitted out with the new B12 and the stylish Performance2 paintwork is sure to attract large numbers of admirers. Tuning fans will be able to get expert advice from the BILSTEIN specialists.

The B12 sport suspension kit combines sporty dynamics with maximum functional capacity. Allowing the car to be lowered by up to 40 mm, the Pro-Kit provides an impressive level of sporty driving performance combined with a precise response, excellent driving dynamics and high-level safety reserves. The emphasis in the Sportline version is on a sporty appearance and dynamic driving characteristics. Permitting lowering of up to 50 mm, it puts any car into closer contact with the road. Experts carried out elaborate driving tests to harmonize the EIBACH springs perfectly with the BILSTEIN shock absorbers. The sport suspension kit achieves outstanding driving dynamics values thanks to the BILSTEIN monotube gas pressure technology and the EIBACH lowering springs. Even after intensive use, the high-quality springs retain their target height. TÜV certification has already been issued for the B12 suspensions.
Suspensions show their potential and quality most clearly during cornering, which is why visitors to the BILSTEIN booth are being encouraged to enter their favorite bends in a world map provided by Google Maps and Google Street View as part of the "Dream Curves" campaign. Tuning fans can also enter their favorite bend on the Performance2 website ( to let other sports drivers in on the world of beautiful curves.
