AST Suspension Lowering Springs are now available for BMW G-chassis vehicles!
AST Lowering Springs are manufactured from a premium high tensile chromium-silicone wire which is handpicked by AST engineers for its quality and metal consistency. Each spring is cold wound and then heat treated to increase hardness and reduce internal stresses present after winding. Each spring is then individually shot peened, phosphate treated and then powder coated to outlast even the life of the vehicle. These springs are engineered to work flawlessly with the stock dampers and are backed by a lifetime warranty.
This G80 M3 Competition is our first customer to receive these new springs. The front was lowered by 30mm and the rear by 15mm. 12mm spacers were installed on the front and 10mm spacers were installed in the rear. The end result is a great setup for daily driving that offers stock-like ride quality, improved looks and no rubbing!
The G8X chassis M cars are probably the most polarizing designs from Bavaria to date. A lot of criticism has been raised with the large front kidney grilles but as we see more and more of these new cars in the flesh, the more we like them. When in a darker color like Black Sapphire Metallic or Dravit Grey, the grilles are less noticeable. This Dravit Grey M3 stopped by for its first round of mods with Macht Schnell Wheel Spacers and body color-matched Front Reflectors from IND. This car's got 10mm spacers on all 4 corners. Along with the painted reflectors, we also installed blacked-out Roundels on the front, rear and all the wheels (stock roundels have a chrome rim). We weren't too fond of the styling like many during the announcement but with tasteful mods, we think these cars will start growing on people. We can't wait to do more to this new platform as more stop by our shop...
