BMW E46 3 Series (RWD) - 3DM "TrackDay" Suspension Kit
Thank you for your interest in our E46 3 Series Öhlins "3DM TrackDay" suspension kit.
Öhlins has been an integrated part of the Motorsport industry for over 40 years. With its headquarters in Sweden, there are over 320 employees and a test center at the most demanding track in the world, the Nurburgring. Öhlins is the choice of Professional racers from Touring Cars, 24 Hours of LeMans teams, and the new 2018 BMW M4 GT4 factory racecar.
Our ‘TrackDay Series’ kits take the Öhlins Road and Track dampers to the next level while still retaining street-ability. While you certainly can “set it and forget it” with these kits, they are geared more towards the person who wants to tinker with their suspension on a regular basis.
- Street Friendly with Racing Level Technology
- Dual Flow Valve (DFV)
- Damping Adjustable (20+ available clicks of adjustment)
- Ride Height Adjustable
- 2 Year Warranty (Corrosion tested ISO 9227)
- Customizable (Spring Rates, Valving, Mounts, etc)
These kits are not “shopping cart” developed. Tweaks to each component have been made to ensure proper fitment and the ultimate performance. For example the front strut was originally designed to work with the OEM top mount. When converting over to a camber plate, the camber plate “stack height” is much thinner. This creates ride height and rebound travel problems. We include special spacers to adjust the strut position in the spindle clamp to resolve this problem. This also aids in the ability to use a wider wheel/tire combo as the lower spring perch is higher to help clearance.
