    i know these have been covered to death but has anybody used the febi bilstien ones? i can get a set for anout £260 to my door and i would imagine they would be decent as its a reputable name but wont bother if there not any good.

    It is a decent name, but i've no experience with them.

    After mine costing me nearly 700quid (cheap ebay set + replacement meyle set + new tyres), every pot hole and bump the car hits my brain screams "noooo, my control arms!!!" lol.

    Its a little cheaper than the Meyle's but not a silly amount cheaper like the ebay ones were, so they might be worth a pop.

    what sort of miles have they done in the 3 years? they are near £100 cheaper than the other 2 good sets and it is a reputable name so i cant see them being chocolate like the cheap ones.
