Better fast than hard - the latest AC Schnitzer suspension developments

by Bernie McGroarty on February 28, 2014, 2:48 pm


AC Schnitzer has followed its philosophy of transferring technology and design from motorsport to the road, and over the years has refined this philosophy ever further. In suspension development in particular, extensive tests with concept cars on the road and track are essential: simulations and models tests are simply not enough. The concept is simple: "Better fast than hard".

True to this motto, we have turned our hand to the latest 1-series (F20/F21), 3-series (F30/F31) and 4-series (F32), and developed racing and sports suspension kits under the watchful eye of "suspension guru" Manfred Wollgarten.

AC Schnitzer Sports Suspensions lowers the vehicle by around 20mm and offer a sporty, comfortable ride. The kit consists of:

2 x spring strut front axle
2 x spring front axle
2 x shock absorber rear axle
2 x spring rear axle



AC Schnitzer Racing Suspensions offers fully adjustable ride height, compression and rebound adjustment, and lowers the vehicle by around 20mm. This is a sporting, firm set-up that also retains comfort for everyday use. The kit consists of:

2 x spring strut front axle - adjustable
2 x spring front axle
2 x shock absorber rear axle - adjustable
2 x spring rear axle

Does anyone know if the "Sports" kit will work with x-drive? It lists F31 which is available non-USA in two wheel drive, but I would be interested in a kit for a USA F31 (x-drive).
