Exclamation Bmw m6 suspension - outputs/constants/values - HELP

Hello everyone,

I am a student at a technical university and study automotive engineering. I am doing a modelling project of how a car passes over a speed bump (bmw/VW/renault), but this concerns the BMW only. I am having a real hard time finding values such as:
-Length of the suspension
-Spring constant and max compression length
-Max force on 1 suspension system
-damping constants

basically im trying to find a very technical spec of the car, but i cant find anywhere. Could someone please point me in the right direction?

thank you,
Viktor Kolev

BMW doesn't publish those specs. You could contact a BMW race shop to see if they have some of those numbers, RRT comes to mind. Otherwise you you were expecting to just find those values somewhere you're SOL, sorry.

What BMW are you specifically looking for? Perhaps someone would take some measurements for you.

I am looking for any Bmw that has sport written all over it, the idea is that these values will be compared to comfort cars, and normal cars. So Even an M3 e36 would do or a f10/f12 m6 or any M///power or sport like bimmer

Thank you
