Saloon, Touring, Coupe, Cabrio and finally Compact – the offer of BMW E36 body types is extremely wide. Many orthodox fans of the model almost renounce the latter version, but despite the controversial appearance, Compact kept what is most characteristic in BMW – the rear drive!
The suspension design of this version is slightly different from the others, therefore the offer of the MTSGWBM01 set described last week is complemented by the MTSGWBM02 coilovers, designed for the Compact, and the agile toy – Z3.
The front of this set has been adapted from E36. We are dealing here with a proven solution in the form of a gold-plated strut, armed with Eibach springs and PUR foam bump stops. Maybe the E36 is no longer a young car, but the characteristic white-blue badge is synonymous with the premium brand, and the best available solutions match it.
The rear axle of both Compact and Z3 is, of course, a fun drive. But also a short and light back. To make this relatively small weight go down, just like the brand’s fans like it the most, the MTSGWBM02 set has redesigned rear springs, made of course by Eibach.
Whole rear suspension, together with the sports shock absorber contributes to achieving a satisfactory lowering.
