BMW E34 - SE to Sport Suspension HELP

Recommended Posts

Hi All, 

 

Does anyone know all the suspension parts needed to make and SE model E34 into a Sport?  Do BMW also still supply all the original parts? 

 

Thanks

Yes but at huge expense. It depends what year and model but Sports all had the big top mounts as fitted to 530i/535i/540i's and some TDS cars. 

 

BMW want something like £200 per damper - you'd be looking at a £1500 bill for all the bits. Really, a set of Boge Sachs Super Touring dampers and H&R springs with a @30mm drop will be about the same. Not much lower than std but a bit firmer and lots of wheel travel.

Can't see a point in upgrading SE suspension to genuine Sport, when there's a huge choice of aftermarket options at a lot more reasonable prices.

 

Look into various suspension kits made by Bilstein, Eibach, etc.

Agreed, the sport suspension bought from BMW  is very poor value for the upgrade you'll see. Use OEM parts (lemforder) to make sure the various arms, links, and bushes are in as new condition and then ask what it is you want from the suspension?
