Which the dampers/shocks are not made by Bilstein at all but a company called DeCarbon which also makes them for G-Max.

Some of the brands listed make coilovers for rally use. That isn't what you want to fit if the car is for road use surely.

The quality of the FK kits was enough to scare the Bilstein rep - the FK kit is nearly half the price, with the same quality build, and the same features!

Details of the FK kits are in our new catalogue. The Highsport kit is 480 and is height adjustable front and rear. Spacers aren't required on this kit either!
