That's very kind of you. I apreciate your offer but if/when I change I will probably go for a B6 in the rear to make the damping more controlled and stiffer. With the stock shocks the rear feels under damped on compression.

Even this are simple shocks they are a improvement over stock.

Re: Fiat 500 coilovers on a Panda 312/319?

I found a set of Bilstein B8 shocks for a reasonable price
They also offer the B4 and B6 kits

As stated before, Bilstein does not offer the B8(short sport shock) for the Panda 312. There are lots of companies that say the do have them but if you talk to Bilstein directly they will tell you that there isn't a B8 made for our car.
I'm not saying that the shocks being offered won't fit but they are not developped specificly for the Panda 312.

Then I stand corrected. I've maild a while a go and then they didn't offer them. Also I checked last week on the Bilstein site and the B8 shocks still didn't show. Now it does appear on the Bilstein.com site so it must be correct.
I would suggest to contact Bilstein directly to ask if they have the correct part numbers.
Lot's of sites where offering them for years but Bilstein said that these wheren't correct so watch out when you order.
A Novitec lowering kit with B8 shocks would be pretty cool.

Combined with the 16" mito wheels i'm hoping to get close to the corner speed of my father's 100HP.

For the straightline performance i'll have to visit Savali

If you get some good tires on those rims your corner speed will be fine
I would like some pictures of your Panda and the Mito wheels. I have also looked at many Alfa wheels but could never find a nice pair.
Keep us posted on those Bilstein shocks, I'm realy interested in your findings.

They are not adjustable like "Koni Sport", and there for not my choice.
The B6 and B8 shocks could be very hard, and then you are stuck with them.
I like to have adjustability (compression-Rebound) in my shocks, so i can adjust them to my likings.
My Koni Sport shocks with AP springs (40mm front and 30mm rear lowering) were awesome, the best suspension i ever had on a Panda. (typ 169)
