This month, we wanted the ultimate performance coilover technology, so we hit up BILSTEIN and they sent us this kit for the W204 C63 AMG. This is their Clubsport kit. “This is completely over the top for the road, but for track, it’s absolutely brilliant,” explains Aftermarket Sales Manager, Aaron Quilter. And you know what? We agree.
BILSTEIN Clubsport is geared towards the real track day enthusiast and translates years of motorsport experience and race winning technology into a coilover for you to enjoy. With over 100 different damper setting variations possible, individual bump and rebound adjustment and camber adjustable top mounts BILSTEIN Clubsport should have any real driver drooling.
Despite all the adjustment on offer BILSTEIN hasn’t made Clubsport hard to use, with an ingenious colour coding system – blue for bump, red for rebound. This ‘2-way adjustable system’ makes on the fly adjustments at the circuit a breeze and when coupled with a lightweight aluminium construction makes the Clubsport a sure-fire winner in our eyes.
BILSTEIN use the Nürburgring to test the performance of all their aftermarket suspension kits. Legends like Walter Röhrl are deeply involved with the Nürburgring test programme and have direct input in how BILSTEIN products perform.
Mr Röhrl says, “What’s important is not the speed at which I do something, but the degree of perfection with which I do it. When I do something, I want to do it perfectly.” That’s the kind of attitude that ensures each product is manufactured to exacting standard.
