A BMW’s suspension is quite literally what makes your vehicle feel like a BMW and unlike anything else. In a BMW, highway+ speeds feel like 35mph does in anything else, and a BMW will take turns effortlessly as if it is on rails. BMW’s precision engineered suspension tuned for a sport driving experience is the center piece of the ultimate driving experience. It is imperative, therefore, that your suspension is performing properly and is not loose.
Worn or damaged suspension parts will always cause tire wear, possibly at a highly accelerated rate dependent upon which part is worn or damaged. Torn or loose bushings will cause your BMW to feel like it is wandering all over the road and can even feel like something is being hit. Leaked or worn out shocks & struts will cause every bump to quite literally feel like a big deal! Properly operating shocks & struts will create a smooth and effortless, regardless of the road surface, and your vehicle will feel more glued to the road.
BMWs often have bushings and mounts serviceable separately using BMW specialty tools - do not pay more for less at a non specialized shop selling you a complete control arm where only a bushing is needed. Precision tooling is often needed to replace shocks and struts on BMWs, from a spring compressor to laser alignment tools just to replace front struts on some newer BMWs. There is always a significant difference in quality from BMW grade suspension components to aftermarket. At Ultimate European, we never use anything less than BMW grade suspension components as we want to keep your BMW handling like a BMW.
