Ohlins DFV Road and Track Coilovers BMW E8x 128i 135i

This is the latest step in the Öhlins Racing automotive philosophy – Road&Track by Öhlins.

We have also added a clever light-weight design with a majority of the parts in aluminium and on top of that all shocks have suffered through vast corrosion tests according to ISO 9227. The end result is a 2-year limited warranty on all of our products - worldwide.

*Rebuildable

*Corrosion salt spray tested (ISO 9227)

Ethan,

A full review of Ohlins Road and Track on your 135i would be great!

Harold,

If those are anything like the Ohlins I bought for my Yamaha FZ1 (front forks rebuilt and their rear mono shock) this set up would be amazing I am sure!

Looking forward to hearing feedback on these for the 1's! I am really thinking about using this set up.

Talking

One of the reasons I chose the Ohlins kit, and decided to spend the extra couple hundred bucks, was that Ohlins is just about THE best name in motorcycle suspensions.

Plus, I wanted matching ohlins suspensions on my car And my bike.

Good to see that this kit is available from a single vendor now.

When I built it I had to source the Ohlins directly from Ohlins and the springs from Harold.

This is a fantastic suspension setup. Highly recommended!

spent yesterday at HP autowerks getting the basic dfv's installed then drove the 100 miles back home.

How do you say "they honestly can ride better than stock and chew through transitions like a fat girl at a bacon-ice-cream-and-waffles buffet" without sounding like a fanboy being paid to say it?

If you're local...enough to HP, just go to them, get these put on, screw around all day in Santa Barbara because there's a fair amount of fun stuff to do in walking distance, and go home grinning.

Enjoy the Ohlins R&T!

Don't you just love how the DFV system soaking up all the bumps like they aren't even there?

I hit the driveway into our garage at an angle when I enter it, producing a bit of rocking motion. The wife's old IS350 rocked *badly* and my 135 gave a little sway when stock. On these? nada.

I'm officially a fanboy.

Hi Harold.
I am looking at getting a set for my 135i

Quick question, will you be able to adjust ride height independently without affecting the spring preload????

Does not look like it from the pics but maybe i am mistaken.

Thanks

No coilovers I know of have independent height adjustments at the bottom of the struts. Ohlins R&T is still your best choice.
