Default Re: Dampers for the BMW 320d (F30) - Koni FSD vs Bilstein B6?


Went for a long drive on winding roads and a mix of smooth and partly rough patched surfaces. The small vibrations caused by the poor surface is felt a little more than the stock suspension while the larger undulations on the surface is soaked up better than F30's stock suspension. But it does not feel anything like a stiff suspension and it behaves better while soaking up the surface with a more dampened sound and feel which improves the comfort of the driver and occupants. It feels more 'German' now! Cornering ability has improved and if you push it, its that much more fun. Thankfully the roads were almost empty on Sunday afternoon and it was fun on the ghats to use paddles and maintain the pace through turns without feeling loss of traction. During hard braking on uneven surfaces at high speeds, it feels more sure footed than before.
