As recommended in a post by Ronnie last week i contacted them through they're website out of business hours and inquired about whether they had any used but good gas front shocks for a 92K 325I and if they did how much they would be with postage. The next morning (Thursday) at 8am i received an email back saying they had them in stock, £50 for the pair plus £10 postage plus vat and to call if i wished to order them. I then rang at lunchtime and spoke to Lee, confirmed they were definitely gas and ordered them and paid by card. Friday morning Lee rang me and said he'd found some on a car that were nearly new and described as very shiny and still painted black but they were not genuine and would i be interested in them instead. Well knowing that all i could find when getting prices for brand new gas ones that everyone seemed to supply Sachs boge only i said yes I'd have them, he said ok I'll get them out today and re-confirmed my post code.
This morning they turned up at 9am, exactly as described (very black and shiny) and my suspicions were correct - they were Sachs boge, to my complete surprise they also came fully built up with nearly new looking springs and top mounts - result!!
I then checked the part numbers on the shocks using Sachs website http://www.sachs-boge.co.uk/ and then found out they were M-Tech spec - even bigger result!
I can not recommend this company highly enough, Lee was especially helpful, the cost and postage were very reasonable and to offer probably a better pair of shocks at the same price was the icing on the cake.

Just a little note to say thanks to Ronnie, i was aware this company existed through ebay (user name quarrymot) but would not have thought to try them through they're website if you hadn't suggested it.
