    After almost 10years, mine look a bit tatty, clearly not designed to cope with UKs road salt! I'm pretty sure they are still working as intended, considering mine have only covered 30k miles or so?
    Anyways, is there an easy solution to give the exterior a spruce up, or even have them rebuilt? Kind of expensive to go out and buy a new set when they aren't broke.

    10 years is bloody good going though, proves the difference between those and eBay jobby coil overs - mine was knackered after 1 1/2 years!

    Just to make it clear, 10 years of parked in the garage and only 30k miles.
