Bilstein B4's

Post by jifflemon » Wed Apr 17, 2019 1:03 pm

So, posting this as an info post...

Just tried to order a Bilstein B4 set of shocks, and despite saying "10 in stock", received a message saying

"Unfortunately ourselves and Bilstein are currently out of stock of the rear shock absorbers from this set. New stock is due to arrive in June."

My concern now is that if Bilstein are out of stock, they may not produce any more new stock..... :(

Shall be keeping you all updated...

I just ordered B4s front and rear (shipped to the USA) from Demon Tweeks at the end of March. They arrived on my doorstep in 4 days! ... 19-019871/
