Black Sappphire F87 M2 Competition - Ohlins DFV Road & Track Coilovers
BMW M cars are some of the finest choices when it comes to a "double duty" type of role. You can daily drive them comfortably during the week and push it to the limit at a weekend track day. That's exactly the kind of car this M2 Competition is.
This M2 C stopped by for Ohlins Road & Track Coilovers. These Coilovers work well "out of the box", but there’s still plenty of adjustment for you to set things your way. You like stiff and reactive? Or soft and forgiving? It’s all there. Too much low speed rebound damping can have an adverse effect on grip, so the easily accessible adjuster at the base of the Öhlins units allows small, but positive increments of fine tuning, so you can take into account every single parameter. Sounds complicated? Nothing could be further for the truth. Just a few clicks either way from our factory settings will soon have your car responding precisely to your inputs and driving style.
Also bolted to each corner are Titan 7's lightweight and fully-forged T-S5 alloy wheel. For cars that regularly apex on the curbs on race circuits at speed, a durable, forged wheel is necessary to to soak up all that punishment. Titan 7 wheels are pressurized with 10,000 tons of industry-leading pressure to give you a wheel that is incredibly strong while giving you all of the performance attributes you need in a track focused wheel.
The OEM driver's seat was replaced with a Recaro RS-GK. Factory seats can have the driver slide around during hard cornering, so a seat that hugs the driver in place can really aid in confidence and ergonomics when you clip the apex or fly through a sweeper. The seat is securely bolted to a Macht Schnell Clubsport Mount. Designed as a full turnkey seating solution for most race shells, the Clubsport Seat Mount comes complete with mounting brackets, seat sliders, and adjustment mechanisms. The kit is lightweight, strong and simple to install.
No modifications are required for installation and it is fully reversible at any time.
