I called Bilstein, and in a moment of honesty (stupidity??), I explained the
whole situation to them.  I figured I'd get a new shock out of them, which
probably isn't the correct shock to begin with, and I'd have to buy the
correct ones anyway.  They are thinking about it, and will get back to me.
I'll check the dimensions on the B46-0130 (usa 5000t nonq) vs. B46-2065
(200 euro Q), and also get back to you all when Bilstein gets back to me.
Thanks for all the help, and hopefully this can be a learning experience for
some of us, apparently me most especially...
