After trying the aftermarket SACHS "red label" advantage shocks (from autohausaz.com) .... I went back to Koni yellow sports in front and dealer supplied SACHS sports in the rear on my touring.

This was rather an unexpected purchase, but a great one at that. After selling my Alfa Romeo Berlina I needed a daily driver. My friend sent me a link of this 1 owner beauty with just 67k miles. The rest is history. Sorry for the so-so pic.

After a minor fender bender with a SUV, I finally got my touring back from the body shop. Had them replace/repaint the hood, front bumper and also added Slimmbones new polyurethane front lip.
