Anybody have experience with this Ohlins ?

Hi,

I go to Ohlins website today,
and see that they have this Ohlins new website for their Road and Track used line:
http://www.roadandtrackbyohlins.com/en/product-range/

and I see they have application for E90, and it is in stock,
and I think the ordinary E90 and the M3 Sedan should be the same,...

so I try to look around for price of the kits, and so far only find this single website who
listed the price at $2,349

http://www.horsepowerfreaks.com/part...vers/DFV/16388

I was expecting much higher price than $2,349 for Ohlins coilovers kits,
but from the picture of it,
this kits is NOT
the same as some custom kit made for M3 application which use the racing shocks...

I guess this is more of a entry line kit equal to PSS10 or KW3...

anyway, have anybody ever use this Road and Track line from Ohlins ?
any review please ?

and is there anybody here that use custom Ohlins kits that use the higher end Ohlins struts and shock absorber, I am talking about the Ohlins that equal to the most expensive Motons...
if some of you use this high end Ohlins kits,
may I know where you buy them from,
and how much is their cost ? and
are they durable enough for daily driving too, and
are they still comfortable enough for daily driving ?

Thanks

Sadly, the mechanical design of the M3 suspension is quite different from the regular 3-series cars. Bottom mounts for both the front and rear dampers are quite different and definitely not interchangeable.

I expect that the Ohlins Road and Track is similar to the Moton Street Sport kit.

If anyone has them, they'll be on Mazda's, Mitsubishi's and Subaru's, so check out those online forums for reviews.

I contacted Ohlins today and was told that they have a R&T kit for the M3 coming out in a few weeks.

Guess they didn't give out any more info.
I wonder how this kit will compare to the Moton kit.

Wow. Swedish suspension nirvana for under $3K?

Over the years I've bought tons of Ohlins bike parts including TTX shocks and R&T forks, just fantastic suspension for the money. Really looking forward to seeing this kit.

What I know so far:

-Single adjustable (rebound & compression, 30 clicks?)
-Front height adjustable via 1) spring preload, and 2) strut body length change
-Dual Flow Valve Technology
-Camber plates (likely)
-Rebuildable/Revalveable
-Made in Japan

Will post more when I know.

A few pictures on other applications:

That is a bargain price for Ohlins coilovers, I purchased a set of Ohlins fixed perch struts for my other car and they were $2100 , then add springs, camber plates on top

P.S. Love hlins stuff and my struts did have 25 clicks of rebound adjustment

Looking at their product catalogue, they seem to have really gotten into the JDM market.

What about those external reservoir, dual-adj. struts/shocks they have for the e92m3 GT4?? Can we put some camber plates, rear shock mounts and spring perches and use them on our cars??

The price for those GT4 Ohlins double-adjustable race shocks & struts (with remote reservoirs) are out of this world.

Not exactly how expensive, but when I was talking to Christian over at BMW Motorsport HQ in Germany, he told me the Ohlins double-adjustable race setup on the GT4 race cars were much more expensive than even the KW Club Sport coilivers.

If you're curious to know how expensive they really are...I could contact BMW Motorsport for you. (to see how many banks you would need to rob in order to pay for them )

And if anyone cares...the $2800 Ohlins street kit (shown in the pic above) uses a twin-tube shock design, not a mono-tube shock design.

Yes please find out the price. Also for the Sachs kit on the GTS please, if possible.

What are you implying with the twin tube? From what I have read, at the non-racing level it makes no difference assuming it is properly designed...
