Brand info: BC Racing was founded in the late 90’s and are now a well-known industry leader, their products can be found in all types of vehicles, from complete race cars to normal cars. BC Racing Benelux / Showoff Imports partnered with BC Racing in the late 2000’s as their sole distributor to start marketing the great products BC Racing produces in the Netherlands, Belgium and even more EU countries.
Coilovers from BC Racing are the pinnacle of adjustable performance for your car. They are developed to compete with the big boys and can handle the violence of the track well. Example; The BR Series street & track coilover offers height adjustment via a mount at the bottom (to maintain full damper travel) aluminum topplates, ball bearing mount for the top and a dust boot to protect the damper seals.
The mufflers themselves are incorporated into a large 46mm diameter piston, housed in a 53mm diameter muffler body to maintain maximum oil capacity. The damping is so well worked out that BC units are filled with a viscosity of oil that advantageously affects the damping to observe that the oil heats up during extreme use. The large capacity of the oil reservoirs in BC dampers lowers the temperature fade of the oil to keep the damper performance at the highest possible level. BC’s damper units are also compressed with nitrogen which reduces aeration of the oil and improves damper cohesion and quality.
The BC range offers value for money; A coilover setup that mixes street and track great. With an entry-level price coupled with great performance, it becomes difficult to find a comparable coilover system for a similar price.
We have the ability to provide your coilover system with custom springrates based on your needs. If you need custom specs regarding jumprates, send us an email. Keep in mind that the standard kit developed by BC Racing is a very good match for most cars and drivers, so most people do not need a custom kit. Custom kits have a 1-3 week lead time because they are made to order.
Camberplates are not available for some kits due to the factory design of some cars. Camberplates mainly work only on a McPherson strut. The reason is that some car manufacturers use an A-Arm style suspension for their cars both front and rear. This type of suspension cannot support the use of camber plates, so then you either need an adjustable arm/link or another camber adjustment setup. As an example; If you ever come across a post stating that a Civic EK kit includes camber plates, this is often incorrect. These messages are generally generic plats used for a large number of cars. These kits will mainly come with rubber mounts for the top, which is ideal for street use, Ball bearing plates are optional. Although the ball bearing plate is only a solid steel bearing it needs no modifications.
BC Racing Benelux offers the extreme lowering kit for most cars upon request. This includes a shorter spring and shock combo to allow for a lower drop. This also affects how high the kit can go, this is something you do need to consider before ordering. We only recommend the extra low option for those who want to go very low, slammed or stanced. We don’t recommend this setup for serious track cars unless you really know how to set up the suspension. If you need an extra low set, send us an email. The price for an extra low set is 75 euros incl. 21% VAT.
Want to go really low with your car? But not sure if it's possible with a normal coilover kit?
BC Racing offers the possibility "Extra Low"!
This for only 99 euro's extra!

BC Racing is originally founded in the late 90"s and they have been a well known industry leader to this day and their products are found in all types of vehicles ranging from complete race-cars to everyday drivers. BC Racing Benelux / Showoff Imports teamed up with BC racing in the late 2000's as their sole-distributor to start offering the amazing products BC racing manufacturers to the public in The Netherlands, Belgium and currently even many more EU countries.
Coilovers from BC Racing are the pinnacle of adjustable performance for your ride. They"re designed to compete at the very highest levels and take the punishment of circuit and fast road abuse in their stride. For example; The BR Series Street and circuit coil over offer height adjustability via a bottom mount (to maintain full damper travel) aluminium top plates, pillowball upper mounts and a dust boot to protect the damper seals.
The dampers themselves incorporate a large 46mm diameter piston, housed within a 53mm diameter damper body to ensure maximum oil capacity. Damping has been worked out so carefully that BC units are filled with a viscosity of oil that favorably alters the damping to take account of the oil heating up during hard use. The large capacity of the oil reservoir in BC dampers reduces temperature fade of the oil keeping damping performance at the highest possible level. BC"s damper units are also pressurized with nitrogen gas that reduces the aeration of the oil and improves damper consistency and damping quality.
The BC range provides a great "bang for your buck" coilover setup that mixes street and circuit use very well. With an entry-level price coupled with excellent performance, you"ll be hard pushed to find a coilover quite as capable for anywhere near the price tag.
We have the ability to set up your coilover kit with custom spring rates based on your needs. If you need custom specs for spring rate then please email us directly. Be advised, the standard kit that BC Racing puts together is a very good match for most cars and drivers so most people don"t need a "custom" kit! Custom Spring rates will require 1-3 weeks build time since they are built to order.
Camber plates are not available on some kits due to the factory design of some vehicles. Camber plates will generally only work on a "McPherson strut" design. Reason is because some car makers use A-Arm style suspension on their cars, both front and rear. This style of suspension will not support the use of a camber plate, so you would need to use either an adjustable Arm/Link or other camber adjustment setup. For example; If you ever see a listing that says a Civic EK kit includes camber plates, many times it is not correct. These listings are usually generic listings that cover many makes of cars. The kits will generally ship with rubber insert upper mounts, which are ideal for street use, Pillowball plates are optional. However the pillowball plate is just a solid steel bearing, it has no adjustments.
BC Racing Benelux offers the Extreme Lowering kit for most vehicles upon request. This includes a shorter spring and shock combo to allow for a lower overall drop. This will also affect how high the kit can go, so there is a trade off and you should consider this before ordering. We only recommend the "Extra Low" option for those who are looking to go very low, slammed, stanced, etc. We do not recommend this setup for serious track vehicles unless you really know how to setup the suspension around them. If you need your set extra low, please email us. The price costs for an extra low set are 75 euro incl 21% VAT.
