    I am very happy, I have just bought some 6 month old Bilstein B6 shocks with Eibach lowering springs. Lowering 30mm front and 40mm rear, all for £255!!

    I cant wait to fit it

    I've got Eibach pro springs fitted currently with standard shocks.. and although i'm reasonably happy I am considering getting a full set of Bilstein shocks to improve things further..

    the shocks work out at £250 ish for a set.. will this improve my car much?? basically is it worthwhile??

    by the way dane sounds like you got yourself a nice little bargain there mate

    Should do. I'd imagine that your shocks will have a few miles on them by now!

    Remember that there are different types of bilstien. The black ones tend to be OE spec with the normal damping tubes, then there are the B6 and B8 which are better with the upside down large damping pistons. But even the OE ones will make a difference from tired shocks...

    yeah I would be getting OE spec bilsteins only.. can't justify anything more expensive on my car!

    bilstein claim they are OE spec but will produce a big improvement over standard shocks.. that doesn't make sense surely??
