So, I guess this means Monroe are Audi o.e.??? Based on Eric's statement that
Monroe/KYB/Carrera are all made by the same mfg. I guess now KYB can be
considored o.e.??? Hmmm...curious, guess the imitation bilsteins aren't so
bad after all...either that or Audi purchasing got a great deal in spite of
engineering's wishes otherwise.If that is the case though, why do the
Monroe's cost more than the Boges for this application??? Strange.
