    I am going to change these before the MOT in a couple of months, the car is a 2.0 litre TDI quattro S-Line and I am also going to do the rear springs, probaly for S3 ones, so no lower than -35mm. What shocks are OEM and what do you guys recommend I have spoken to a coupld of places and Bilstein B4s seem to be OEM equivelant with B6s a good upgrade, also got offered Konis?

    Not much as you can probably see. Did manage to establish that factory fit is Sachs, also what they sell at ECP and a bit cheaper than the dealers' price but just to be different I bought the Bilsteins anyway with S3 springs, been on the car 2 weeks now and very happy so far :)
