H&R has more than ten years’ experience supplying the highest grade components to the most established racing teams in Europe. Using all this experience and knowledge, H&R manufactures quality parts for the broader market at excellent value for money.
H&R plans and creates each part from their own facility in Germany, employing world-class engineers and designers. By overseeing all aspects of the production process, no matter how small the component, H&R can guarantee an outstanding product and customer experience.
When used along with H&R lowering springs, you can be sure of the best performance coilovers money can buy. Furthermore, the brand offers a broad spectrum of coilovers for just about every vehicle make and model, so there’s something for everyone.
H&R is proud to supply the best coilovers possible and always provides top performance, safety and durability in one exceptional package.
Distinguished parts manufacturers like H&R understand that what one driver finds comfortable in a car’s suspension may not be the same for someone else. This means that every H&R coilover is fully adjustable, regardless of the model, and shock absorbers are simple to adjust using H&R's customised spring seats. Changing vehicle height depending on road conditions, weather or simply because you fancy something different is very fast and easy.
Every H&R coilover comes complete with a specially designed mono-tube gas shock system. This allows the shocks to counteract excess spring energy more effectively, as well as give a smoother, more responsive driving experience.
Progressive rate springs offer H&R engineers the ability to tune each coilover for compatibility with a particular make or model of car, as experience shows that not all models are the same when it comes to what feels right.
What our customers say about H&R Coilovers "I have been running this suspension all through 2007 at the Nurburgring on my Peugeot 306 rallye with no problem at all. The track grip is immense, and the quality is second to none. I will be using this same setup on my next car."
H&R is pleased to be able to market two distinctive coilover varieties, both offering outstanding results in line with any budget.

During the last few years of the 1970s, keen German motoring engineers Werner Heine and Heinze Remmen had started to realise that suspension was merely an afterthought during a car’s design process.
They noted its lack of priority, resulting in the majority of cars on the road suffering poorly built, restrictive suspension systems, and they knew something had to be done about it.
Using their many years of professional and personal experience between them, Herr Heine and Herr Remmen set about creating suspension springs that would offer drivers superior handling and enhanced control on the road. They strongly advocated the idea that car journeys are not just about making it from A to B, but are also about enjoying the ride and being comfortable.
The designers then combined their knowledge and started manufacturing their own unique suspension springs, with the sole aim of showcasing to the motoring world how excellent suspension springs could transform the appearance and ride of motor vehicles. Over time, they continued developing and refining their suspension components according to their own exacting standards, pulling in plenty of interest from the rest of the motor manufacturing world as they went.
Eventually, the work of the enterprising pair won highly sought-after TUV certification - the German hallmark of excellence in engineering. Alongside this outstanding recognition came the dawning of a new age in the European Performance Spring market, with H&R leading from the front.
The high standards and intricate detailing of Herr Heine and Herr Remmen’s suspension systems became a central part of H&R which continues to be the case today. Since the beginning, H&R has focussed all its efforts on being leaders in the field and producing top class motor suspension is at the heart of everything they do.
The BMW 5 Series has been a leading executive saloon ever since its introduction in 1972. It was the first BMW to introduce the 'X' Series nomenclature, along with the three-digit designations.
Over 10 million 5 Series cars have now been produced, making it the second best-selling range for BMW, behind the 3 Series. The 5 Series has always been popular in Britain, with early versions such as the E12 and E28 now being cherished as classics.
If you need parts for any BMW 5 Series just take a look here first - we have everything you need, whether it's for a classic or any of the more modern versions listed below.
The E12 ran from 1972 to 1981, replacing the 'New Class' saloons which were credited with saving BMW and taking the company through the '60s and '70s. Engines were naturally aspirated four and six-cylinder petrol units.
The E24 generation, in production from 1988 to 1996, is immediately distinguishable by the smaller headlights that BMW were introducing across the range. The E34 also saw the introduction of fuel injection and an estate version - the 'Touring' - in 1990.
The fourth generation E39 ran from 1995 to 2003 and, for the first time, a diesel engine was offered. This brought the number of engine families in use across the range to nine - unusually large.
For the first time, with this range, BMW's production codes were split by body type; the E60 being the saloon and the E61 the estate. Production started in 2003 and finished in 2010.
From 2010 to 2016 the sixth generation was produced, introducing a third body style - a fastback branded the "Gran Turismo". This received the code F07, with F10 going to the saloon and F11 to the estate. The saloon also received a hybrid drivetrain option for the first time.
The three body styles carried over to the current seventh generation, introduced in 2017, but the Gran Turismo was hived off to the 6 Series and is no longer considered part of the 5 series. With G30 referring to the saloon and G31 the estate, the other code - E38 - is for the long wheelbase version built and marketed in China.
The 5 Series cars run forever if they are looked after properly. It's not unusual to see examples for sale with over 200,000 miles on the clock and occasionally over 300,000.

From near bankruptcy in 1960 and fighting off acquisition by American Motors and the UK's Rootes Group, BMW has risen to become one of the most respected car brands in the world - producing more than 2 million vehicles for the first time in 2017.
A prestige brand, the range now covers every mainstream car niche and a few that the company has invented itself, like the fastback SUV crossovers now in the X range.
Although now known by the 1 to 8 Series branding, with some recent offshoots, our involvement with BMW starts with the 'New Class' models that rescued the company in the 60s and 70s. We still carry parts for the 1500 and its larger brothers, as well as the iconic 2002, the forerunner of the all-conquering 3 Series.
The 2002 and 3 Series established BMW as a drivers car brand although the 5 Series was the first modern 'Series' car, in 1972. The smaller 3 Series followed in 1975, the 6 Series coupe in 1976 and the larger 7 Series saloons in 1978. Smaller cars followed much later with the popular 1 Series.
In 1994 BMW had bought out the Rover Group which included the Land Rover and Mini brands. After six years BMW off-loaded the remnants of the group, retaining the Mini brand to launch a retro version in 2001. The fruits of Land Rover ownership were realised with the launch of the X5 SUV in 1999, a risky undertaking given BMW's reputation for sporting models. But it proved so successful that there are now 'X' version of every Series bar the 2 and 7 Series, and they are rumoured to be on the way.
Since 1972 the BMW Motorsport division has been producing high-performance versions of production cars alongside its race cars. There was some dabbling with an M535i in the very first 5 Series but it was with the M5, based on the second generation 5 Series, that the 'M for motorsport' variants really took off, following up with the iconic M3.
BMW has also been producing coupe versions of its saloons throughout its modern history. The company then introduced a proper mass-production two-seater sports car with the Z3 in 1995, followed by the Z4 in 2002.
BMW has also launched BMW I - a separate brand of all-electric cars which launched the i3 city car in 2013 and a full-on sports car, the i8, in 2014. It's also now possible to buy hybrid versions of cars in the 5, 2, 3 and 7 Series ranges, with more on the way.
With such a wide range of vehicles, with so many variants, it's no wonder that many parts suppliers can't cover the whole BMW range. But here we have parts for all models from the 1500 up to the latest electric cars.
