BMW M135i & M235i (N55)
Handling Upgrades

We pride ourselves on our suspension knowledge and chassis understanding. Our workshops are equipped with the latest suspension measuring and alignment technology. Combined with our excellent working relation with the best suspension brands on the market means we can provide our customers with their perfect setup.

We have owned a number of BMWs in recent years including one of the first M235is and M2s in the country. This has allowed us to develop a variety of chassis improvements for both enhanced road manners and track handling. These cars have regularly enjoyed testing around UK track events as well as frequent visits to the Nurburgring.

We have a range of upgrades to suit your budget and requirements.

For a simple and straightforward upgrade we can install Eibach’s range of springs, anti-roll bars and spacers for the M2, which improve both handling and appearance.

For those drivers who want a faster road setup and who do the odd track day we would recommend the AST and Bilstein suspension kits which have received critical acclaim on our M2 demonstrator and make the ride vastly improved.

For the more performance focused cars with frequent track days we'd suggest the KW clubsport variant 3s and for race cars we can fit the Moton WTCC suspension packages.

As well as providing incredible solutions for our customers many of these manufacturers is a direct supplier to BMW and BMW Motorsport. Together with our unique setup and chassis components we can transform the dynamics of your road or track M135i/M235i.


Litchfield / AST BMW M2 suspension kit

We first started working with Dutch suspension company, AST, in 2003 with the creation of our Subaru Type-25 chassis upgrades. We have worked closely ever since and more recently on our BMW M235i we featured their latest 2-way adjustable suspension kit. Being so impressed with the cars ride quality and handling improvements we again turned to AST to help us produce a new suspension kit for our BMW M2 demonstrator.

The AST 2-way dampers allow the driver to quickly adjust the firmness of the damping using the CNC adjustors. The ride height can also be adjusted to suit the drivers local conditions and each kit is supplied with upgraded drop links. Having used the dampers extensively on our own demonstrator we have developed a damper position, ride height setup and wheel alignment geometry which will suit most owners. The car will be much more supple on the road and make long distance journeys more enjoyable whilst still having razor sharp handling response, improved body control and greater driver feedback.

For owners looking to take their M135i/M235i on track regularly we can also installed solid top mounts for even more adjustment and driver feed back (photos show kits with topmounts installed).

KW Spacer Kit Front & Rear

The KW spacer kit (12.5 mm each spacer) gives the M135i/M235i a slightly wider track that will benefit the car's handling. Aesthetically it helps the wheels fill the flared wheel arches for a more balanced look especially if the car has been lowered.
