The german directions say no oil.  How funny.

We can decipher German and want Bilsteins!

Bilsteins:  No oil in strut.  They are built "upsidedown" as the oil just
cools the piston rod area.
Also the bumper stop is internal.  At least on 200's you discard some items.
Oil is for conventional shocks to disipate heat from the shock getting a
work out from the raod thus genrating heat around the Strut cartredge
( a Boge or similar etc.....)

Obvious answer is, don't put any oil in, but why is the reason for this?  O=
r, should I put oil in anyhow?

The only thing that I can think of, is the fact that there seems to be hole=
s on the bottom of the insert, unlike what I have seen on other shocks in t=
he past.  Is this why?
