    I've had them with eibach pro spring kit. Great handling, also found them fairly comfortable with a nice Sporty feel. Was more comfortable with my 17s but found them a little bit hard with the 19s. I would def recommend them tho

    Bilsten B4 s are equivalent to oem struts the only difference being they will last a whole lot longer

    Thats what the car is sitting on at the moment the front,s for the last year and the rear,s for 22 months, If you just want to do a one for one replacement for the existing shocks then go for it.
    Also most guys upgrade there springs as well at the same time due to vauxhalls famous ability for installing rubbish springs.

    Darn beaten to it

    Maybe it was the b6 shocks I was using? What's the shorter ones for lowering springs?
