Re: bilstein gas shocks

Some good, some bad - mine was bad unfortunately. I think that if they have what you want in stock, then you should be good. If it needs ordered from someone/somewhere else, then perhaps not so good. Pay by VISA i reckon, so if it all goes wrong.....

Let us know how you get on, as if they have sorted out their customer service issues, it would be good to tell us all about it.

Re: bilstein gas shocks

Ok, so I had a call today and they can't source the Blistein shocks straight away, but they can get some Sachs shocks to me tomorrow, which are by all accounts as good. If they do deliver thses tomorrow then I will be more than happy with there service.

Re: bilstein gas shocks

i had bilstein gas shocks on my previous car, Ford Escort, brand new and they made a difference, ai have no idea what could go wrong or what bad review there could be - bilstein is number one shocks brand I think, or at least in the first league

you cannot go wrong only the ride maybe a bit firmer than the stock shocks

you can also try a sport version or race version the letter one is of course the firmest and most expensive

i really like the pssst sound of the gas shocks BIlstein , i am going to get them for my panda when these stock wear out
