Hello, I need to replace my shocks and wanted to go with Bilsteins. Price is a fator as is ride quality. I was thinking of the Bilstein Heavy Duty shocks but the service tech said these produce a pretty rough ride in the verts. Any vert owners wanna dispute that???
Bavauto has the front Heavy Duty Bilsteins for $165, rears $85. They also have the Touring Bilsteins for $129 and $69.
I had never heard of the Touring models, which are described by Bavauto as "For a slightly sportier ride, try Bilstein's new Touring Shocks. For years, BMW owners had a choice of regular replacement shocks and Bilstein's famous blue-and-yellow sport shocks, but nothing in between...until now! Bilstein's new line of Touring shock absorbers. offers better performance than stock (they have 15% more gas pressure), but they're not as stiff as their sport shocks."
Any thoughts? Thanks!
