Most likely you just got used to them since they loose dumping ability gradually.
To really test shocks you need special equipment which even dealers rarely have in this country.
I rode around in a 2012 528 as loaner for a day when the dealer changed out the plugs two weeks ago. When i first started driving in the 528 I immediately thought that my car rode and felt just as good. When I got my car back I concluded that my car my car felt just as comfortable and handled much better. This is why I know my shocks are fine.
