Just a friendly find...

I was browsing the Bilstein site earlier today and found these:
B4 OE Replacement Front Struts - Part#: 22-250407

To my knowledge these are the first aftermarket struts available to market. And at a reasonable price.

Looks like rears are currently not available. Hopefully soon.

Nice! Chances are Bilstein may be better than the original Monroe struts...although Monroe had to build them to MB certification so probably no real difference....

Good info. Didn't know the originals are made by Monroe. True, MB would require a high quality product. But some of the other Monroe aftermarket products can be hit or miss.

Currently the German Bilstein site shows both B4 and B6 replacements for the w447 chassis.

Hopefully they will be offer these in the North America soon. Would be nice to have a performance choice when time for replacement.
