    This guy found that they bottomed out when fully settled! and as you can read he wasn't happy with the nose down stance.
    Also when i ordered B8's I recieved B6's without any comment from the supplier! He told me he couldn't get the B8........which are the same bar the travel! make sure you read the label................. B6's are superb anyway

    Europerformance they claimed that Bilstein would not supply me the B8,
    which is normal for the B12 kit.

    as it happens the B6 length was not a problem, and the valving is the same!

    my top link on the rear suspension needed doing but i just fitted new std ones, i put yellow stuff pads in [but there is not much choice for the 314 brakes] and braided hoses. I uprated the brake fluid. I also bought eibach camber bolts to try and get 1 deg neg on the front.
    If you check my threads you will see it is quite effective. I think the bilsteins are perfect, amazing control.
    If you want trolly jack ride you will be dissapointed.
    i run 8" wide wheels!
