BMW E82 128i, 135i Ohlins "Road and Track RTR" Suspension Kit
Thank you for your interest in our E82 128i, 135i Öhlins "Road and Track RTR" 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. Ohlins is the choice of Professional racers from Touring Cars, 24 Hours of LeMans teams, and the new 2018 BMW M4 GT4 factory racecar.
The Öhlins "Road and Track" lineup provides optimal suspension performance on both the street and the track. You like stiff and reactive? Or soft and forgiving? It’s all there. The easily accessible adjuster at the base of the Öhlins units allows small, but positive increments of fine tuning, so you can take into account every single parameter. Sounds complicated? Nothing could be further from the truth. Just a few clicks either way will soon have your car responding precisely to your inputs and driving style.
- 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)
Öhlins "Road and Track" suspensions are great out of the box but we know everyone is a little bit different, or perhaps a lot different which is why 3DM Motorsport offers a variety of "Road and Track" solutions for your E82. If you haven't already, we recommend reviewing our 'E82 Öhlins Buyers Guide' where you will find information such as “Why Öhlins” and "Why Purchase From 3DM Motorsport" along with an overview of all the categories of kits we offer. This will help guide you in purchasing the best kit for your application.
E82 Öhlins "Road and Track RTR"
3DM pre-assembles the basic Öhlins Road and Track Kits with OEM mounts so they are ready to bolt up to your car out of the box. This removes the need to research and source all the pieces yourself. It also reduces the risk of getting caught mid install with an incorrect part. New mounting hardware is also included depending on the application. All ride height settings are set to Öhlins recommended starting points with spring perch jam nuts torqued. You can always request a different setting or change it yourself before install.
In most cases, basic hand tools are all that are needed to install these kits. There should be no need for complicated special tools such as a spring compressor. Every DIY mechanic operates at a different pace but with these kits you will likely cut install time in less than half over a basic kit.
If you are having your favorite shop perform the install, the RTR kits will save you labor costs as well, offsetting the extra cost of the new mounts and hardware. We recommend letting your shop know this setup comes pre-assembled so they can adjust their labor estimate accordingly.

Front Spring Options: (Ohlins Brand)
Because of the MacPherson strut front suspension, the lower spring perch is very close to the tire. Most wheel and tire packages clear the original spring from the basic kit but more aggressive fitments may rub such as a “square” setup. To help resolve this we offer two different 180 mm (7 inch) front springs to create additional clearance.
(60 N/mm) (342 lbs/in)
(70 N/mm (400 lbs/in)
Rear Spring Options: (Ohlins Brand)
Whether it be for track use, power upgrades, or wheel/tire upgrades, we have found increasing the rear spring rate helps improve the balance of these already fantastic kits. All springs have a 230 mm height
Rate: (110 N/mm) (628 lbs/in)
Rate: (120 N/mm)(695 lbs/in)
Rate: (140 N/mm) (80 lbs/in) Coming soon…
The basic kit valving is fantastic out of the box, however if you prefer even more extreme performance, we offer revalve services for Ohlins. Each kit purchased from 3DM Motorsport comes with 1 free revalve. This is redeemable at anytime.
