GAZ Shocks has long been associated with performance suspension for various BMW models and now the company has released a GAZ Gold Coilover suspension conversion for the BMW M3 F80 model. Ride height is adjustable through 60mm of adjustment. The height adjusters have a coarse acme form thread for ease of adjustment and the damper units are black zinc plated to ensure that they remain in good order even after considerable service. Damper rates are also variable by means of an adjuster knob on the damper body. The GAZ Gold range comes with a gas cell in the reservoir filled with a high viscosity index multi grade oil to prevent cavitation and reduce fade under racing or trackday conditions.
All the units are individually tested before leaving the factory and are covered by a two year warranty.
The GAZ Coilover Kit for the BMW F80 M3 can be ordered as part number GGA544 and retails at £1149.49 + VAT.
Overseas customers should contact their local GAZ dealer for prices.
NB: Later F80 cars with adaptive suspension require a ‘delete kit’ to override the ECU and prevent a ‘malfunctioning suspension’ code being given. These kits are available from several sources online.
