    Motor factors are useless unless you know exactly what you want. Call a vx parts dept who may offer you one at a decent price and without hassle.

    The Bilstein B4 is quoted as being OM/standard but the are (IMHO) better than the standard SRi and certainly many people have replaced there SRi shocks with these and are very happy.

    I did my rears and the B4 is about 10-20mm longer (as it's standard) but it's the spring that sets the hight and it doesn't bottom out. Again, a common set up is the B4 and eibach springs which are 30mm drop on standard (The SRi is 15mm already so it's only another 15mm for them) and people have no problems and love the ride.

    The B6 is the 'uprated' sports shocker and does offer significant improvements over OM but it's twice the price. Unless your driving like a maniac I think most people are happy with the B4 (including me).
