Hi Ed

Not so far, but I´ve had two sets of Monroes in my former turbo
Saabs; Heavy-Duty ones at my lowered ones, couldn´t use Sensas
just because of the suspension height. These were really worth of the
money for a short time I had them. Made me believing in them, maybe
not for a heavy quattro, but for Audis´ CGT, yes.

About Sensatracs: almost all I know is what I wrote, You should have
designed height for them. All my friends cars I´ve driven, that have those
worked well, again -dunno how did they last. In my opinion; very good 
compromise between Comfort/Sporty and Money/Quality. I´m pretty sure 
Monroe is closer to those B:s than KYB:s. 

If You decide to buy Sensas, please let us know Your impressions.

My best
