BILSTEIN boasts a history of over 140 years, founded back in 1873. From our humble beginnings in the business of window fittings manufacture, nobody expected BILSTEIN to one day become a household name in the automotive world with a massive influence on road safety and driving comfort. High quality standards were given top priority, granting the company’s founder, August Bilstein, an outstanding reputation not only within local regions but also into neighbouring countries.
To achieve that celebrated BILSTEIN driving experience, BILSTEIN engineers rely on not only technology that is truly at the cutting edge, but also something that has withstood the test of time: how it feels to the driver. As a result, all of BILSTEIN's high-performance absorbers, as well as sport suspensions and threaded ride height adjustable kits, undergo a rigorous testing programme.
