I believe they are predominantly being sold only in Europe and Asia hence the lack of mentioning on these forums


*Not picture of actual E9x application

From what I know they are 20 clicks single adjustable dampers

Now we all know what Sach brings to the table in OEM and F1 applications... Just wondering if anyone has had any experiences with their coilover systems.. The VW golf crowd has had pretty good reviews thus far

You are correct the ACS coilovers ($$!) were manufactured by Sachs... But since then Sachs has came out with their own system (PN as posted above)

I believe Performance Shock Inc (PSI) carries the Sachs "street" kit.

I'll be paying a visit to the local Sachs dealer to find out more info regarding this setup

After a month of pursuing the TCKR S/A setup I am just about to give up and look for other options..

I would be more willing to spend a premium on a better setup than to spend it towards the hefty shipping


This Sachs system and the soon-to-be Ohlins R&T are intriquing options....

I've found pictures of Sachs "RS1" setup from the good guys over at Studie Japan





Judging from the non-matching part number and its price tag (~USD4XXX) I believe the RS1s are their top of the line "RACE" version?

Heres a company that sells them online for an idea of its price range.

Dont quote me on this but I am quite confident they can be had for significantly less here in Asia as with my experience regarding the Bilstein PSS10s...
