[BiturboS4] euro springs for S4's...

FWIW, I think the valving on the Neuspeed-tuned Bilsteins is bizarre, and
gives the car an unsettled feel on undulating roads. I spent some time in my
wife's "stock" S4 over the weekend, and it handles better than my car w/the
NeuBilsteins. It's much better damped under all road conditions.

My uneducated guess is that they tried to valve them to "match" their sport
springs, and the resulting setup works poorly w/stock springs (I have no
idea how it works w/stiffer springs).

There's another Bilstein solution: ECS (www.ecstuning.com) tuning sells
Bilstein Sports that are the correct part for the S4. In addition, they will
groove the shock body for you for a small fee to your specs. I have a set on
their way to me as I write this.

Why didn't I just get the NeuBilsteins revalved? 1) I didn't want to deal
w/my car up on bricks in the garage for a week, 2) Assuming I like the
"stock" Bilstein Sport valving, I'm going to have Bilsteins revalve the Neus
& probably slap them on my wife's S4 (or just sell them).
