Evening All,

Iím going through some bits on the car in preparation for itís MOT in a few months. Iíve noticed that 3 of the 4 dampers are weeping.

Iíve priced replacement OE units but as itís an M Sport it runs Sachs dampers at about £130 a corner so quite a costly exercise to change them all and refresh the chassis.

Iíve got 2 options and Iím looking for experience/advice on the 2 -

1 - Euro Car Parts do list alternatives made by Anschler at about £85 a corner. Has anyone used them and are they alright replacements for the M Tech units? Ride, handling, tyre wear etc?

2 - Various eBay sellers list coilover kits for the E91 at around £250 all in. I know that I would factor a geo setup into the costs but I need to understand if this is a viable option or whether anyone has done it and regretted it against standard. Same questions apply really. Ride, handling, tyre wear etc?

Experiences and suggestions welcome all.

Thanks,

Matty

Not forgetting to cut and paste the product number into www.carparts4less.co.uk first and add their MAY12 discount code and compare prices
