Hmmm... that's odd. Well, here is the info... you can go back in and surprise them. Tell them that another guy got them through them... and if they give you a hassle, talk to the manager. They DO have a program where they can get anything (well, just about everything...).


KoolWire spark plug wires, mfg'd by Borg-Warner (BWD)
Mfg # CH76107
Pep Boys sku # 8384106
Unit price $154.27 (for the set of six)

This was for my 1992 Audi 100S with the 2.8 V-6 (in case they ask...)

I ordered these on 01-11-97, and got them two-three days later. As I mentioned before, they are the real McCoys... with the OEM Beru connectors on the ends... with the Audi four ring logo.

Good luck.

Here is what I originally posted:

I ordered the Bilsteins through a place called Strano's. I had ordered the triple electrode spark plugs through them before... twice... at only $4.32 apiece (vs. $11.00 at the dealer). I decided to give them a call re: the Bilsteins. Here is the breakdown:

Front struts 2 @ $118.30 apiece = $236.60

Rear shocks 2 @ 97.00 apiece = $ 194.00

Shipping (from PA to MD) = $8.25

Total = $438.85

I guess I got a good deal??

Here is their address and phone #:

Strano's Foreign Car
68 White Street
Brookville, PA 15825
800-777-1831 / 814-849-3417

They are nice people... always courteous... and helpful... and I've never been disappointed. Of course, usual disclaimers etc... I have no financial interest or connection... just a satisfied customer...

Good luck.
