    Default New Koni FSD shocks

    Anyone know much about these? I've read the Koni bumpf and they seem to be just what I want, but wondering if anyone's had any practical experience with them?

    The Frequency Selective Damping (FSD) is supposed to give a firm sporty ride but adjust to the driving style and road conditions so they don't get harsh on uneven surfaces.

    Any opinions?

    It's to do with special valves and oils that get trapped in certain sections of the damper under different loads, something like that!

    I was quoted just over £400 +vat by one site, but another who have been helping me decide on what's available/suitable to go with my PI lowering springs will do them for just under that inc. vat. Just waiting for a firm quote by email then i'll be ordering.
