About Koni

KONI makes a broad range of product lines to deliver upgraded performance in handling and ride quality to cars and trucks driven on paved roads. Below is a list of the many world-class KONI products and features, including Koni sport shocks and suspension kits, so you can make the right choice for your vehicle. We also have Bilstein Sport Shocks here for another reputable company providing quality performance parts.

Koni

KONI has a long and colorful history starting in 1857 in the Netherlands and was not a shock absorber manufacturer at its onset but made leather equipment for horses and then prior to World War II it began designing and manufacturing a friction type shock absorber and finally after the war it initiated work on the telescopic shock absorber. Later, KONI began to view racing as an avenue that would advance the company’s presence in the automotive industry and consequently participated in an international rally and thus was the start of the KONI presence in the sport of racing until finally winning the World Championship with Tyrell Ford at the wheel winning the driver’s and construction championships and the rest is history. KONI has dedicated itself to the task of improving damping for racing purposes but it has not stopped there and has gone on to improve damping in commercial vehicles as well as things like bridges--no job is too big for KONI and its experts and now KONI has a presence in a potpourri of conveyances and industrial applications being used under the most extreme conditions and are touted to be first when it comes to the designing and manufacturing of shock absorbers and suspension systems.

As a testament to its success in 1972 it became part of the globally diversified industrial company ITT who has a customer base in about one hundred twenty-five countries around the world and is one of the leading manufacturers of energy, transportation and industrial solutions. When you purchase a KONI product you can be certain that a great deal of expertise has gone into the making of that product whether it be in design, manufacturing or testing because a company cannot exist in such a competitive marketplace without providing a quality product that satisfies their customer and they certainly can’t become one of the leaders in the industry. Whether you choose the Gold, Yellow, Orange or Red KONI shocks for sale on the LMPERFORMANCE web site ,know that the difference is not in the color but in the unique driving experience each is designed to provide because KONI makes every color of SANS PARIEL quality, they just want to give you the ability to choose the one that best suits your driving situation.

For over 150 years, KONI has been the premier manufacturer of performance and adjustable Koni sport shocks in the world. KONI shocks introduced the industry's very first adjustable shock absorber, electronic drag racing shocks and today's patented FSD (Frequency Selective Damping) street shocks. KONI suspension kits are made from the highest quality raw materials and machined to the highest tolerances. This quality is represented not only by KONI's long heritage in motorsports but has also afforded KONI shocks the ability to offer a limited lifetime warranty on many of its shocks.

BMW

These are some of the items you can find at LMPerformance for your BMW

If you own a BMW, the luxury German car, then we know you appreciate the finer things in life and want top quality performance out of your car and we want to help you do that with the prestigious array of performance parts available on our web site. Parts like those from the inimitable SPEC Clutch line with Clutch Kits from street kit Stage 1,2,2+, 3, and 3+ to Race Kits Stage 4 and 5 and the Mini Twin and in the SPEC Super Twin for the M6, M5 and M3. We know you don’t want a cookie cutter clutch but one that satisfies your driving needs and the stage selection of the SPEC clutch is determined primarily by use, rather it be for street use or more high performance use such as racing or autocross. and by materials used to manufacture the various clutches such as molded carbon KEVLAR, full faced Kevlar with steel backing, carbon semi-metallic on one side, carbon semi-metallic 6 puck sprung or not sprung, carbon semi-metallic with a double sprung hub, solid hub with 8 rivets or full-metallic disc- all decided by you, the driver. The pressure plate in your BMW is the driving force between your engine's power and the drive line and if you are doing intense driving you need a performance pressure plate like the one from SPEC for increased holding power. Another great product from SPEC, the billet flywheel exceeds the industry standard of .010 tolerances by a considerable amount with the .001 tolerance guaranteeing ideal balance and flat bedding and can be rebuilt and have a replaceable steel friction plate and they are a lightweight alternative to your factory flywheel.

Several estimable exhaust kit options are available for your BMW and one such brand is CORSA Performance, a renowned manufacturer of aftermarket performance exhausts. CORSA Performance features straight unrestricted flow mufflers and are available depending on application in 3 different sound levels to suit your taste. For example, CORSA'S BMW M3 exhaust system features a patented non-restrictive straight-through design resulting in the reduction of back pressure and freeing up much needed power all resulting in improved horsepower and torque. Since there is no drone because of CORSA’S own RSC Reflective Sound Cancellation technology, you never need to worry about the that annoyance just expect great sound.

Another very popular choice by BMW enthusiasts are the B&B (Billy Boat) exhausts which are made right here in the U.S. in Arizona. They feature 304 mandrel bent Stainless steel and come in several muffler styles such as the Bullets, PRT, and Fusion. B&B tunes each muffler to match its application for the best possible performance gain and sound quality combination. Billy Boat recently started to incorporate the PRT technology into all of their muffler systems. PRT Technology allows true straight through exhaust passage under aggressive driving, though a mellow sound is emitted at cruising speed thanks to the unique Purge Chamber. The use of two distinct packing materials and several S.C.C.’S inside the BILLY BOAT muffler enable them to create a harmonious sound that will have heads turning when you drive by.
