    Will probably be changing my rear shocks in the near future and was wondering if the Billie B4's are a replacement for boge sport shocks or are they a standard shock replacement? IF not ill stick to boge ones as the b6's are quite a price hike!

    The B4's are excellent and should be an OE equivelent.
    I will be fitting the B4's to the M3 in the future....

    I believe the B4 shocks are about 10-15% stiffer than standard, i have them on my car and they are great.

    Thanks for the replys chaps, wasnt sure if the b4's were softer than the sport shocks but having said that, most things will probably be stiffer than a weak shock

    You wont go wrong with anything by Bilstein, they are brilliant shocks. You are right, they will be better than the old weak ones though...

    Word of advice - before fitting the B4 shocks, you're supposed to prime them - pump them from extended to compressed 10 times each. No-one told me!

    sorry to drag this up again, having a bit of controversy with the part numbers. Looked them up on the bilstein website, 330d with mtech no problem. Putting the part numbers into eurocarparts it comes up with the front shocks fitting a 320d with standard suspension and the rear shocks to fit a 325ci with standard suspension

    Give ECP a ring. There website is crap and doesnt go into enough detail. The guys will look up the correct ones for you over the phone....
