    Hi Peeps,

    The A3 failed its MOT on Friday due to fried rear shocks which will now need replacing fast!!

    I've seen these and wanted to know if anyone's heard of or had any experience with them?

    Also, i see it states 'for standard chassis', mine is a 2.0l tdi 'sport' so would the shocks be different to 'standard' (or is it just spring rates that make the sport lower?)

    Would I be better off getting bilstein replacements?
