Re: Shock Absorbers

Don't know MB part numbers but assume on a 500 they are Bilsteins? 

Bilstein B6 easily available from Demon Tweets, Larkspeed etc and cheaper

Re: Shock Absorbers

The 500's often ran factory AMG version shocks

No more expensive than the standard MB shocks

Bilstein B6 are a very good alternative as stated 

Post VIN.. even just last 5 digits and I can put part numbers up

Re: Shock Absorbers

If you ring round a few dealers they will all potentially offer different discounts,  easy now you have the part numbers?

Are yours shot?

Re: Shock Absorbers

Hi Jason,

I'll have a call around my local dealers,

I had an advisory on my MOT about the shocks and wanted to get an idea of replacement costs.

 

Regards

Re: Shock Absorbers

Readily available from MB Germany

A tempting £408......

Unfortunatly each so £1632 a set of four

A nice set of Bilstein B6 at circa £650/700 a set from Autodoc or similar would be a better choice!

Re: Shock Absorbers

With a bit of searching you can some good deals on Bilsteins from Germany,  or you could still buy Koni Raid shocks for half the price of OE stuff and far superior ( only my opinion)
