You (Andrew) paid $500 for four (4) Boge Turbo Gas (just the shock/struts),
I recently paid $437 (incl shipping) for four (4) Bilstein Sport (just the
shock/struts) from RD.
Just how much do you "Bilsteins-are-too-expensive" people think Bilsteins cost?
Enquiring minds want to know,
1991 200 quattro, 81k, car for slippery stuff, where did the snow go?
1988 GTI 16v, 173k, car for non-slippery stuff
