    Hoping to take advantage of 25% discount on ECP and get some new front shocks.
    However, there seem to be loads of different prices for Sachs items and not sure which ones to go for...

    Can anyone help, or suggest cheaper alternatives?

    Cheers.

    It seems Boge and Bilsteins are identical prices with C3 and MSW. Not sure which ones to go for. Arent Bilsteins firmer than the OEM shocks?

    Ive been told the B4's are very slightly uprated. But to be honest its hard to tell, but the last car I fitted them to rode really well.....

    Went with these guys in the end, slightly cheaper, and very professional and helpful over the phone.

    Only annoying thing is having to wait a week for delivery as they're coming from Germany.

    Yup. Arrived early today actually, so having them fitted tomorrow. Was a bit confused to see 'E46 3-series Compact' on the sales invoice, but it seems all compacts have M-sport spec shocks.

    Cant wait to see the difference they make.

    They feel good but i think i need to replace the rears as well because its still quite bouncy.

    Still, its a lot better through the corners.
