    No. Best buying Bilstein b4 shocks rather than putting chocolate vx ones back on.

    Some people would say yes, but i too have Eibach and Bilstein, and not had the 4 wheel alignment check done.

    My tyres seem fine too. Just individual opinions i suppose.

    Knew the fronts were weight specific, but not the rears. Seeing as he has a 2.0 dti the answer is no.

    Four versions for the rear
    Standard
    Standard V6
    Sports
    Sports V6
    Dealership I used had ordered Sports (as per the VIN), but as soon as they looked at them realised they were wrong
    I've been having this problem for so long, however once the right parts are found I simply ask for them by part number in future
