    I have one, sold one.

    Can get a part number at the weekend if no one else can help you buy then.

    I got some from Audi Peterborough and they gave me 20% off, but they turned out to be Monroes with Audi badges - so you can get them off Ebay easily enough....

    Call TPS, there should be one local to you, they will give you a price and part number too.

    Also maybe worth putting an ad in the classifieds, im sure many have upgraded there suspension on here and would be willing to part with standards to a fellow member.

    Any Audi dealer will be able to get you a part number if you give them your reg number (ok, not always but most of the time :))

    If you are looking for genuine parts then a dealer or TPS is your only choice... if looking for a pattern part then somewhere like GSF... (REAR SHOCK ABSORBER 513VG1010)

    Lets not turn this into a classifieds ad please :)

    Can I just add that when you order 2 rear shocks from Audi they come sellotaped together and not in boxes. Was gonna send them back due to scratches etc. but they said it would just be the same again. Well disappointed for a quality car manufacturer.

    Just wondering if anyone has replaced the rear shocks will gsf versions? Looking at their premium shocks now and wondering how good they will be? My rears are starting to look pretty tatty.

    They seem fine, said that the car is standard at the back and have only done 1200 miles or so

    I ran a set of the GSF rear shocks for a couple of weeks after AP sent me the wrong ones in a suspension kit, no complaints, worked well and fitted straight on.

    For the price, longevity wouldn't be an issue really, although I've no reason to suspect they wouldn't last.

    Excellent, thanks for the info. I think ill get ordering the premium rear shocks from them soon, mine seem to work ok but just look tatty and also the bushes are very soft.
