I've got the Bilsteins in my car and now have about 110k miles on them. I
would agree with the other persons comment on the shocks being fairly harsh
on small impacts, but can't comment on Bernie's input. They were definetly
an upgrade from the originial shocks I took out at the time in that the
oem's hadn't gotten tired by that time.
Funny thing I've experienced that not seen anyone else comment on, at this
point I have noticed that the shocks are not as stiff as when I'd orignially
gotten them. Shouldn't be surprising as all things mechanical wear out, but
don't be falsely led by the lifetime warranty.
