    Hello guys,

    It seems that i encounter a slight issue, my car came with an S-Line suspenssion and recently I've bought bilstein B16 PSS10, i would like to know how can i determine the strut size, i know the size can vary between 50mm and 55mm, from what I've seen in etak mine is 54.6. I hope i'm not looking at the wrong picture :).
    Any advise is well appreciated.

    The 55mm is an approximation. Yours will be the larger diameter (55mm) struts.

    it is either 50mm or 55mm

    You can either ring your main dealer and give them your vin number and they can tell you, or have a look at your car and measure yourself

    Ok, sorry for bumping, it's clear that a 2.0 tdi has the 55mm struts.

    But does anyone happen to know what diameter are the struts on a 2004 1.9 TDI?
    I don't know how to measure them on my car, and all the dealers have closed for today, but anyway i wouldn't trust them, as i've already had a couple of problems with them..

    Rule of thumb is all 2.0s and over regardless of fuel will be 55mm.
