Bernie:  Not ANYWHERE in your reply does the replacement of the strut 
cartredge (and the proper tightening to a specified torque reccommended by both Audi 
and Bilstein) which the Bilstein tool accomplishes when you switch cartredges, 
get listed in your R&R.

Clearly an oversight in your post I see.

They didn't spend the extra coin to make them because they are garnish.
Use Bilsteins, use their tool.
