I would be grateful if the thread could remain focused and whether the moderators could clean it up.

Thanks.
I think confirming what the kits actually are in a thread about the kits in this thread is staying on topic about what the thread is to compare kits of what we actually think we are comparing guy.

It’s been confirmed by 6 forum members and has taken up 4 pages of this thread.

If someone wants further clarification then all they have to do is call up Bilstein themselves.

The topic is “OEM Sachs vs B12 Kit”, not “what does the B12 Kit consist of”.

Please stick to the topic.

Thank you.

I run H&R Springs w/adjustable rear perch and Koni yellows. Rides and handles great. Rear perches allow you to even out the lowering.

For posterity, this is the B12 kit that I ordered back in Nov.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It's on back order and was everywhere I checked, at least for delivery in the US. I'll chime back in about how it handles, if it ever arrives. But I can attest to the B6 shocks being nice!

Whilst the consensus seems to be in favour of the Bilstein Kit, has anyone compared the B12's to the KONI Sport Kit (1145 Sport Kit Yellow)?
