KENT, U.K. — Automotive aftermarket specialists, febi and Blue Print, part of the Bilstein Group, has revealed its latest range expansion, with new braking, clutch, filter, steering and suspension products introduced.

New to the febiPLUS range is a parking brake switch to fit BMW X5 (2006-2013) and X6 (2008-2014) cars. A typical fault on these vehicles is the button breaking as it is being lifted when applying the parking brake.

The steering and suspension product lines expand with the introduction of a new axle beam mount for Volvo S60 (2019-), V60 (2015-) and XC60 (2017-) models (part 177192), a new stabilizer link for Tesla Model 3 (2017-) and Model Y (2019-) cars (part 179467), new strut mounting kits for Audi A4 (2015-) and Audi A5 (2016-) (part 179883), and a new control arm for Ford Mondeo (2014-) cars (part 179105).

The febiPLUS range features over 1,500 specially selected vehicle parts and unusual product types that provide an aftermarket repair and replacement option removing the need to source via franchised dealerships.

Blue Print has introduced three new clutch kits; with part ADBP300163 to fit Ford Kuga (2008-2012) models, ADBP300072 to fit Mercedes-Benz Sprinter (2006-) vehicles, and ADBP300037 to fit Audi A3 (2003-2013), Seat Leon (2005-2020), Skoda Octavia (2004-2020) and VW Golf (2008-2014) cars.

Since 2017 the Bilstein group has housed its impressive Clutch Competence Center in Durmersheim, Germany, for all Blue Print passenger car clutches – ensuring Blue Print can continue to offer modern, original-equipment-matching standards, meeting strict internal quality criteria.

Every product in the febi and Blue Print ranges are subjected to extensive quality checks using various inspection tools across the company’s exacting quality control laboratories.

New products and the latest vehicle releases are constantly being researched to ensure that febi and Blue Print continue to meet the aftermarket’s requirements with every new component.
