If you're like most tuning enthusiasts, you’ve probably made some modifications to the suspension on your ride already. Ride height, control, handling, and road feel matter to performance enthusiasts, and it’s possible you’ve already got a B12 ProLine or Sportline Bilstein Suspension Kit installed on your vehicle. The B14 Suspension Kit is the next logical step for drivers interested in taking their ride from street racing level to into the realms of motorsport. Here’s why you want a Bilstein B14 Suspension kit for your ride.
There’s a few reasons to upgrade to the B14, but they all come down to the same thing: performance. Unlike the B12 kits, B14 kits offer a greater flexibility of ride height for a lifted all-terrain ride and a super-low track-day ride. Additionally, B14 Suspension Kits offer a more connected road feel and superior customizable ride and handling. Let’s examine the specs to better understand all the advantages of a B14 Suspension Kit.
Go lower or higher than ever before without sacrificing performance or road feel. The B14 has exceptional flexibility for a street performance suspension kit, and the design has been torture tested in the extreme conditions of motorsport road testing to create this peak performance regardless of configuration.
Prefer the smoother, rail-like glide of a twin-tube gas pressure suspension? Bilstein has you covered. Want the wilder, stronger road feel of a monotube gas pressure suspension? The B14 can do that, too.
Need to tweak your suspension before tackling a new stretch of road or a new club track? All you need is the right hand tools and a few minutes to alter your front and rear suspension height.
A Bilstein specialty, Triple-C Tech is a superior performance triple-layer coating to protect your suspension tubes and springs from rust and grit. Even after 600+ hours in a salt spray chamber, the Triple-C Technology coating remained unaffected. Layer 1 is a zinc alloy providing excellent adhesion and corrosion protection, Layer 2 is a complete sealing of Layer 1’s zinc base, and Layer 3 is added to provide ultimate protection from mechanical wear and corrosion damage.
Are you ready to get maximum street performance for your ride? Replace your street or factory suspension kit with a Bilstein B14 Suspension Kit, and get ready to experience the smooth and powerful handling that has become a Bilstein trademark for over sixty years.
Opel is a German vehicle manufacturer, and since August 2017 has been a subsidiary of the French car maker Groupe PSA. From 1929 right up to 2017, Opel was owned by large American car company General Motors. Opel vehicles are currently marketed in the UK under the Vauxhall name.
From the popular urban chic of the Adam to the family MPV Zafira, Opel have successfully unveiled a huge range of Opels over the decades.
The Corsa and Astra have proven to be perennial favourites in particular. As the direct rival to Ford’s Fiesta, the latest generation of Corsa landed in 2014 and offers something for everyone, from the 74bhp 1.4-litre petrol model to the 202bhp VXR sporty number. It’s well priced and drives and handles well, with an updated version due in 2019.
The mid-sized Astra has been around in various forms for over 30 years and is renowned for its sharp, sporty appearance and a well-designed interior. Step up another notch and the executive Insignia really is the epitome of luxury and comfort. Fully loaded and with all modern technology and boasting excellent fuel efficient, each of these three models have been the lynchpin of Opel’s European offerings over the decades.
In 2011, Opel released the amazingly spacious and well-received Opel Ampera-e offering an extremely impressive 236 to 323 miles on one battery charge. This is thanks to the particularly high-capacity battery pack manufactured by LG. Its 288 cells kick out 60kWh of power, and the 430kg is located just underneath the Ampera-e's floor with a raised section under the back seat. Super quiet and oozing style and sophistication, the Ampera-e is the ideal MPV for growing families.
