Any German speakers on here?

I'm looking for some H&R lowering springs for a van, seems that they are around a £100 quid cheaper if purchased direct from Germany, but as I don't know much German (Apart from, "Ja ja, ich komme!!") I am unsure of ordering them.

Can anyone help please?

Part number is 29270-4

My dad used to say "bustenhauter" means bra, if that helps.

Will! I see you are upgrading your car - going from a E92 to a van! Congratulations. I'm sure you'll have loads of fun with that this year on the 'Ring.

The 29270-4 are good for:

VW Bus T5 Multivan, Transporter, LKW, California Typ 7HM, 7HC, 7HK, 7HKX0, 7J0, 7HMA, 7HCA; 2WD
Axle load [kg] from 1501 kg front axle, axle load [kg] from 1561 kg rear axle, colour black, lowering [mm] 40, built year: from: 03.2003

If your new ride falls under these specs, the springs are the right ones.

The 29270-2 is specced only for up to 1560 kg rear axle load.

It would be "Büstenhalter" actually. Do you want to lower a bra with springs?

Thanks Marcel, I thought that was the case, I will check my vehicle code to be sure.

My gross vehicle weight is 3200kg so need the highest rated springs available.

And YES it will be going to the ring this year.

What price are they coming in at for these springs from any of your local spring suppliers?

I've seen them for around 200 EUR in Germany.
