AC Schnitzer Lowering Springs

Now sold

I have recently changed my car and have genuine AC Schnitzer lowering springs for sale. ACS springs are built by Eibach but to AC Schnitzer specifications.

These were bought directly from the AC Schnitzer HQ in Aachen, Germany, whilst I was travelling in Europe, so they are definitely 100% genuine and not an imitation! I have kept all the documentation (including the certificate and receipt) that came with the springs. AC Schnitzer UK sell these springs for 274.28 + shipping.

I had the springs fitted for around 6000-7000 miles so they are in good condition. I have never taken the car on a track.

The springs lower the car by 25mm-30mm and lower the front more than the rear so the stance is also changed, a huge improvement in my opinion. Body roll was reduced under fast cornering and the suspension firms up, but the ride quality is not compromised. It’s still comfortable. If you would like to know more about the springs you can contact me or check out the ACS website.

The ACS part numbers are: Front 313387160 and rear 335387130. According to the ACS website these springs are suited for 316D – 320D + 325I – 335I Saloon and not for all-wheel cars. You can check the suitability here http://preisliste.ac-schnitzer.de/ac...swahl=Fahrwerk

Anyways here are the pictures:





Front Spring:


Rear Spring:














175 plus shipping. The weight of the parcel should be around 9-10kgs.

Edit: Some pictures of my previous car with the springs fitted:

At that price, given they're rarer than Eibachs, mate I personally wouldn't think twice if I were looking at springs!

Thanks Sam.

I can only reiterate what Sam has said. You just have to decide who will design springs for BMWs better. One of the largest manufacturers who cater for a wide variety of cars, or a specialist well established BMW tuning company. Remember these are also manufactured by Eibach so no worries about build quality!

Yes all ACS products come with a 2 year warranty. I have only had these for 6 months and you will be provided with all the documentation. Warranty info: http://www.ac-schnitzer.de/en/bmw-ca.../general-info/

Some info on the springs:

Not too sure mate. I'm pretty sure that 25-30mm guideline is for SE cars. So i'd guess that M-Sport would be lowered by less.

I can dig up some pics when fitted on my E90 SE if you want?

Have been in Mo's E90 with these springs on, I can confirm the ride was very pleasant. Would pass as stock to most people in terms of comfort, subtle yet enhancing drop too

If you're after the slammed look then these aren't for you! Also bear in mind Eibach springs also lower by 25-30mm (apart from sportline i think??). Its a good height for road use, no scraping of bumpers etc.

I'll get some pics up shortly
