Even more driving pleasure with the most recent Focus generation

BILSTEIN B14 coil-over suspension and BILSTEIN B12 Sport-Kit enhance Ford best-sellers

Ennepetal, (Germany), February 13, 2013 – Smart driver assistance systems, innovative features, economical and powerful engines: the Ford Focus III is fun, is fully in line with the trend, and is among the leaders in the highly competitive compact class. The suspension specialist BILSTEIN now really brings the hatchback and notchback versions of the Ford best-seller top form with the BILSTEIN B14 coilover suspension system that has been proven in motorsports. Sports-suspension fans can also look forward to the BILSTEIN B12 Pro-Kit, which is now available for the Ford Focus III. Under the formula performance², specially tuned BILSTEIN B8 high-performance shock absorbers and high quality springs from Eibach ensure perfect harmony in the suspension system. Both of these high-quality sports suspension systems are available on the independent aftermarket and offer even more grip and driving pleasure.

Ford engineers provided the Focus, right from the cradle, with its ability to tackle corners dynamically and safely. The monotube gas-pressure technology of the BILSTEIN B14 coilover suspension system ideally complements this natural born ability with high power reserves for maximum safety. Improved directional and braking stability promise even more agility and driving enjoyment. Would you like to tune your Focus to your preferences? The generous lowering range for around 30 to 50 millimetres front and rear axle is just what you need. Even after successful installation, an additional adjustment of the height level by up to 20 millimetres is easy to implement on both axles. A certificate of approval from the German Technical Inspectorate (TÜV) is included. The round coil guarantees perfect handling. Surface coating using Triple-C-Technology®, spring collars and lock nuts made from a special aluminium alloy, as well as high quality sports springs made from highly durable material make the BILSTEIN B14 extremely robust and long-life.

The BILSTEIN B12 range is characterised not only by its sports performance but also, and in particular, by its safe and comfortable driving properties. The result of the combination of specially tuned BILSTEIN B8 high performance shock absorbers and high-quality quality springs from Eibach is maximum sports performance and driving enjoyment, coupled with a high quantum of comfort and security. Experienced suspension specialists are responsible for the BILSTEIN B12 product development, in which BILSTEIN shock absorbers and Eibach springs are tuned precisely to each other in extensive driving tests. The BILSTEIN monotube gas pressure technology ensures optimal handling and thus creates power reserves that are so high. Eibach springs have a reputation for providing constant spring, even under intense stress.

With a lowering of up to 40 millimetres, the BILSTEIN B12 Pro-Kit impressed with its precise response. The sports suspension combines excellent driving dynamics with high performance. The BILSTEIN B12 suspension comes together with a German MOT (TÜV) certificate. Subsequent registration is therefore no problem.

In addition to the BILSTEIN B14 and BILSTEIN B12 Pro-Kit for customized tuning, the suspension system specialist now provides appropriate conversion solutions for the new Focus generation with the BILSTEIN B4 series replacement shock absorber and the BILSTEIN B6 and BILSTEIN B8 high-performance shock absorbers. With the BILSTEIN B4 and BILSTEIN B6, BILSTEIN not only provides a decisive advantage over standard shock absorbers for FORD's bestselling car, but also offers the alternative of a sportier version, the shorter BILSTEIN B8 high-performance shock absorber. 


Even more dynamics and driving stability for the Ford best-seller with the lowering suspension systems BILSTEIN B14 and B12 BILSTEIN.

The monotube gas pressure technology used in the BILSTEIN B14 coilover suspension system ensures enhanced directional and braking stability.

With a lowering of up to 40 millimetres, the BILSTEIN B12 Pro Kit impresses with its precise response.
