New Audi A1 coilover suspension: The BILSTEIN EVO S
With the EVO S, BILSTEIN offers a high-performance threaded ride height adjustable kit for the Audi A1 GB. The BILSTEIN EVO S Audi A1 coilover suspension offers perfect lowering, a sporty driving style and maximum comfort.
When the Audi A1 was launched in 2018, Max knew one thing immediately: “This is my dream car!”. A dream that the mechanical engineering student made come true in 2019. He went for the version with the two-liter TFSI with 200 horsepower. But the brand new Audi A1 with the internal code GB did not remain in production condition for too long. The 22-year-old chose BILSTEIN for the suspension. The BILSTEIN EVO S threaded suspension was exactly to his taste.
The perfect Audi A1 coilover suspension
Max did not leave one stone on another. Among other things, he mounted a sportier body kit and 18-inch matt bronze rims in combination with wheel spacers of 8 mm in the front and 20 mm in the rear. Originally, sports springs with the standard shock absorbers were to provide adequate lowering. That looked good. But the drivability of the tuned Audi A1 suffered. “The combination didn’t fit together, so that there were unpleasant shocks, especially on uneven roads,” reports Max.
A new coilover suspension for the Audi A1 GB should help. The choice fell on the BILSTEIN EVO S threaded suspension from the new BILSTEIN Performance Line. The Audi A1 coilover supension ensures that the vehicle is lowered sharply by up to 45 mm and has a super sporty look. But it was above all the significantly improved driving dynamics that Max was particularly enthusiastic about.
“The handling and especially the steering behaviour has become much more direct”.
More performance, more comfort
“The handling and especially the steering behavior has become much more direct. But what surprised me most was the greater comfort offered by the BILSTEIN EVO S. I always thought that a sporty coilover suspension would reduce comfort. But this is not the case. My Audi is now much more comfortable to drive”.
So Max is quite enthusiastic about the BILSTEIN Audi A1 coilover supension. “I drive a lot of country roads to work. And I totally celebrate it, because I’m already in a good mood in the morning!
Audi A1 production suspension vs. BILSTEIN EVO S threaded suspension
What makes the BILSTEIN EVO S threaded suspension so much better than the Audi A1 production suspension? A whole lot!
- Better performance and a more satisfying driving experience than factory suspension systems thanks to double-tested damper settings – in BILSTEIN driving tests and lab simulations
- Lowered ride height between 30-45 mm with threads to spare and a technical component report
- Damper settings for sporty handling, but still comfort by using it daily!
