Our Project Mini Cooper S F56 gets Bilstein B16 Coilovers
No good project is complete without a suspension upgrade, and after upping the power with a remap the little Mini desperately needed something better to keep it composed out on the twisty roads.
We chose the Bilstein B16, a common theme among our project cars, as for us it strikes the right balance between compliance and performance, Ideally suited to UK roads. The adjustability in ride height also meant we could finally get the car sitting lower to the ground, BMW chose to have the car look like it's on stilts from the factory, so a healthy amount of lowering was much needed to improve the cars stance.
In this video Imran gives you a detailed analysis of the car with the standard suspension, and then again with the Bilstein B16's fitted.
