Bilstein has released details of its many Mercedes W124 upgrade options to allow enthusiasts to uprate, enhance or totally restore the handling of their cherished E-Class. As the OEM supplier to almost all of Mercedes creations, the Bilstein B8 dampers are the obvious fitment when bringing a W124 back to better than ‘day one’ condition.
Bilstein offer fitments for every engine variant of the W124 models, with each fitment borrowing heavily from the firm’s enviable knowledge with each chassis. Bilstein has used this to create a range of dampers that maintains the character and comfort of the original car, but with an even sharper focus on handling precision, making it faster through the turns and more rewarding to drive. The Bilstein B8 damper offers an ‘as new’ OEM quality restoration part and is perfect for the concours purist or driving enthusiast.
