    All B4's are the same, no matter if you have the SRI with the lowered sports chassis or just a standard chassis! Got them fitted on mine and they are a treat! I've read in another thread that LMF buy from Euro car parts, i got mine from Euro car parts.

    Hey Nath,

    Have recently bought some B4's from Euro-car parts(£65 delivered)and they have not only cured the thumping sound and skitting about from the drivers side rear end but completely improved the handling.
    Only took 45 mins to do both sides, it took longer to jack up the car and take the wheels off than to replace the shocks.
    Definately go for it mate, you wont regret it.

    Mark.

    Are these the same as the lmf ones though, because they are black in the pictures as opposed to yellow on lmf (at least for the 1.8 anyway). I hope so because I want a set and that is a good saving.

    On LMF the picture used for the B4 is I think actually a B6.

    B4's are black and look fairly standard
