WTB Hartge-Bilstein front struts and Girling calipers.

Post by Jan E-28 » Sat Apr 20, 2019 9:32 pm

WTB the original Hartge coil-over Bilstein front struts, or tips about who might have some. And also the Girling calipers/271mm disks for E21.
My E21 Hartge was at a restore shop when a dishonest employee sold away some of the parts :evil:

Finders fee that ends with a deal is relevant.

Ouch! Incredibly rare stuff. Perhaps one of our Hartge specialists can help you out but I can't remember having seen these items for sale in the past 20 years.

The Girling calipers are the same as the Volvo 240 ones often used for a brake upgrade, this will narrow your search

As far as I know, the 271mmx22mm discs were specifically custom made for the Hartge e21 back in the day. You have to be extremely lucky to find some.

with regard to the Bilstein struts, same story. But when you send some regular front struts to Bilstein in Germany, they will make coilovers out of it.

Hope this will help,
I took the corner at high speed, came in the ditch, drove straight through a garden, flipped over 4 times and then I lost control of my steering-wheel!
