Of the three pairs of B4 rear dampers I've purchased in the last couple of years, the most I've paid is £25ea. Best price I've found is still spring-loaded.co.uk though now £49ea. Anyone seen better or have recommendations?

Unfortunately there is a lot of profiteering currently where the suppliers blame a shortage of spare parts due to the Covid-19 and can charge almost what they like . not saying that there aren't supply issues but do they have to rip customers off. It is a bit like when the corner shop was charging £1 for a single toilet roll. If you were desperate (oops wrong choice of phrase ) you grudgingly had to pay. I really hope that when this lethal disease has left our shores that common sense would again come through and prices settle back down.

In the mean time have you looked here?

I was warned just before lockdown that Bilstein prices where going up with a bump
at the time I found some 'old stock' and bought a set of B4 (fronts and backs), paid £135 plus about £15 delviery from German Ebay

not seen same prices since though

I did check demon tweeks (as my first pair came from their eBay shop for £35ish/pair). The linked units are 19-109572 which don't show compatibility with A2(not saying they won't be suitable). Have you used these? I returned a pair of these to ECP as I couldn't verify suitably (nor did ECP). Certainly a more palatable price.

I’m franticly buying bits for 4 German cars, can’t imagine how much they will cost next year.

Have you received it yet? Mine are out of stock though I had to contact them to gain this information. Apparently due in stock on 11 Sept though past experience of DT is they couldn't arrange a p up in a brewery. Thankfully not in a rush and they were half (currently available) price.

For info I just bought a pair of the Bilstein B4 rear shock absorbers - they came in at £32.43 +vat each from GSF with one of their perpetual ‘sale’ codes.

Looks like stock is still available.

GSF part number is 513VG0180 = 19-106120
