Air Suspension - Arnott vs Aerosus

Recommended Posts

I replaced a rear susp bag on the E39 in Holland and it was an Arnott Bag ..came with new circlip ....my right side needs done and I was going to order 2 Aerosus  bags ( and keep Arnott as an spare )  ... has anyone any experience of replacing an Arnott bag and knows if the circlip is just universal and will fit a different manufacturer ( aerosus don't come with clips )

haha .. yes .. you would think however my reasoning is Arnott supply one air bag that does SE and Sport .. they say the levellers etc will dictate the correct height but Aerosus which were recommended have two different bags .. the Sport one being slightly shorter so I am keen to keep the car right so will replace the two and keep the Arnott as an emergency bag

 

I think the Arnott bag is OK as it did sit at correct height despite the other side being OEM Sport bag...but I like things to match :)

Do you mean the metal clips on the top that hold the studs in? I haven’t had Arnott bags but I just re-used the original clips when I fitted the two new Aerosus bags for our Sport, if you’re worried just get some new clips from BMW first. 

They fit very well.
