    Hello everyone... general question going out about front shocks... has anyone had Bilstein B8 shocks, ive read that they are very harsh.
    As there are lowered springs i would like a pair of shocks that arent too harsh...

    Cheers

    The B6/8 dampers should be a nice upgrade giving a firm but controlled ride without being harsh. They're really good on my BMW, they are not a race damper nor a cheap "uprated" one either.

    Yeah... well my main concern is that the original ride comfort will be tarnished by little pot holes and the car making a thudding noise! cheers for that though :)

    2003 is an 8L, should be in the other section.

    B8s and H&R springs was always the recommended combo when I had mine, them or Koni FSDs.
