Ed is certainly right here. The ride is nothing lik stock. I replaced my
Boges with Bilstein HDs a couple yrs ago. The car is incredibly more stable
at speed. Gone is that "floating" feeling at 120+. I would say the ride is
not any harsher, it just feels more solid. I am very pleased with the

I have to confess though that I have never driven a 91 200q with new boges -
mine had over 100k on them when replaced. Although they still seemed to be
good, at that mileage I would suspect they were getting tired.
