    I paid 75 shipped for my 5000 mile take off bilstein shocks. Only paid 150 shipped for my 2000 mile take off bilstein struts. Deals are out there just take a peak.

    Plus bilsteins are only like 93 each shock.

    If you need I have a set of stock front struts I just took off that were still good. Pay shipping and you can have them if you want. I've never heard anyone say a bad thing about koni's either, even the BMW people like them for what its worth.

    I've been running Koni Str.ts all around since October-ish. Fit my needs and budget, and I have no complaints.

    Lol same here. I got mine put in around the same time, they're great shocks for the price. I highly recommend buying them.
