I think you got ripped off, those are Bilsteins.
Still, driving impressions are appreciated. I have half an eye on those. The other half is looking at the adjustables in stainless.
Well... considering they were failing so gradually, I don't even remember exactly how the old ones felt before they turned to mush, and can't even say if they weren't half-dead when I got the car, but these make it feel like a completely new car. Before going over a speed bump was like riding a rocking horse, now it just eats up the bumps and on you go. If I were to describe the new ride experience in a single word (or two words connected with a hyphen), it would be "confidence-inspiring". I don't know whether that's good or not.
