Eibach Launch New Audi A1 Chassis Upgrades

Audi’s superb new compact, the A1, now has the poise to match its pose thanks to the suspension gurus Eibach. The German manufacturer has released a spring and spacer package to endow the diminutive Deustchlander with class-leading levels of handling.

Whilst even the most hardened critics are struggling to find anything negative to say about Audi’s latest niche offering, the latest Eibach Pro-Kit package improves further on the already excellent chassis. By lowering the entire centre of gravity by approximately 30mm, the turn-in, grip and predictability of the car are hugely improved.

Sublime handling is all very well, but not if it’s at the expense of ride comfort. Here Eibach’s exclusive access to Audi’s factory chassis data prior to launch results in a factory-quality ride that perfectly matches the original dampers. This is achieved by Eibach’s progressive spring windings that effectively produce two spring characteristics in the one spring. Soft for straight line ambling, precise for spirited cornering. As the official supplier to Audi Sport – Ingolstadt’s Motorsport arm – for the last three seasons, the two firms enjoy a genuine two-way flow of information.

This isn’t simply an exercise in dynamics however; The A1’s balanced good looks are further enhanced by the aggressive stance of the Pro-Kit, giving the car a far more purposeful appearance. The kit is priced at £134.76 + VAT.

For those drivers wanting the ultimate aesthetic and dynamic enhancement, Eibach have also introduced a range of Pro-Spacers for the car. These precisely fitting spacers increase the vehicle track, further enhancing steering precision and improving the cars ability to cope with swift direction changes. The Pro-Spacer range starts at £33.04 for the 5mm versions.

The icing on the cake comes in the form of the industry-leading 5 year, unlimited mileage warranty on the Pro-Kit, ensuring enjoyable driving for many miles to come.

Eibach launch new Honda CR-Z chassis upgrades. Now hugs trees AND corners

Respected suspension manufacturer Eibach has launched a new range of suspension and wheel spacer upgrades for Honda’s new ‘green’ machine, The CR-Z.

The German firm has been quick out of the blocks to release the fully TUV approved kit, despite the new hatch having only been in the showrooms for a few months.

The new spring kit uses pre-fatigued, heat treated and surface-treated springs to lower the chassis by around 30mm. Not only does the resultant lower centre of gravity improve handling and turn-in, but the CR-Z also gains a useful improvement in stance, augmenting its cutting-edge looks even further.

Thanks to the progressive winding on each spring, ride quality is maintained at almost factory levels, whilst allowing the car to stay much flatter under cornering.

Optimised to work with the OEM dampers, the four spring kit costs £143.48 + VAT and comes with a comprehensive 5 year warranty.

The final finishing touch comes in the form of Eibach’s hub-centring spacer kits. Offering owners a wide range of track increases, these beautifully machined components offer a high-integrity solution from just £81.74 + VAT per pair.(10mm versions)

Who said saving the planet had to be dull?

Eibach Release New Pro-Street S Kit for VW Golf 6

Leading suspension designers Eibach have just released details of their latest upgrade for the new Golf Mk 6: Their Pro-Street S adjustable coilover kit.

The latest kit, designed specifically for the car, uses the latest materials and construction techniques to give the VW a wide range of ride-height adjustment, while still retaining a fantastic ride quality. As the name suggests, Pro-Street S are designed with road use in mind, although their stainless steel construction, precision damper units and unparalleled build quality mean that they will also be a pretty effective upgrade on track, too.

The adjustable spring seat can be easily wound up or down in order to achieve the perfect stance – or corner weighting, before being easily locked off with a stainless allen bolt. Eibach actually uses the hugely respected ERS range of race springs on the Pro-Street units, which goes a long way towards explaining their race pedigree. Although not designed as a race-spec unit, there are numerous club-level competitors using them to great effect in various saloon series around the UK.

Ride height cab be adjusted from almost stock level to drops of around – 60mm. Damper rates are computer matched with the springs at the Eibach factory, making the Pro-Street S a true ‘fit and forget’ proposition once the desired ride-height has been set. The entire set of 4 costs just £702.61 plus VAT.

Mini Convertible – Open Air Thrills With Open Road Ability!

It may have been in the showrooms for all of 5 minutes, but already suspension gurus Eibach have a full complement of suspension products for the new Mini Convertible.

Even in standard trim, the car has wowed critics with its combination of svelte good looks, superb roof and responsive chassis. The new Eibach products remove the compromises of the standard suspension set-up to endow the lovable soft-top with an incredible degree of steering precision and driver feedback.

For those looking for the ultimate balance of ride comfort and response, The Pro-Kit lowered springs work in harmony with the factory damper units to lower the car by approximately 30mm. This improved centre of gravity reduces body roll and improves turn-in. Thanks to the spring’s unique progressive winding, developed by Eibach’s F1 engineers, compliance is retained almost at factory levels.

In-keeping with BMW’s reputation for longevity, the kit comes with a comprehensive 5 year warranty on fit and finish. Perfect for UK roads! The kit is priced at £157.39 + VAT.

For enthusiasts searching for true handling nirvana, Eibach also offer a new, stiffer Anti-Roll Kit for the Mini.

The ingenious properties of the new bars mean that in a straight line, ride comfort is totally unaffected, with the stiffening effect only coming into play under hard cornering. The kits are priced at £260.87 +VAT for a pair front and rear bars.

The final finishing touch can be added with the application of the Eibach’s hub-centric Pro-Spacer kit. These are available in a selection of widths to either increase the track of the standard wheels to improve the car’s handling or to allow the precise fitment of aftermarket wheels whilst retaining factory offsets. A great idea in either case. Prices start at just £38.00 + VAT per pair.
