Suspension question

What would be a good aftermarket strut/shock for my '08 335i sedan
And this is a daily driver. Non performance. Or does someone suggest keep stock.


Thanks
Blane

Koni FSDs if you have sport suspension.

Well, like the Drill says, FSD

Now then, what's so thrilling about FSD's? You just gotta Google that....you'll get an eyeful o'info, and be well prepared to negotiate the change, from detailed DIY procedures to expected Indy prices, current.

One thing's sure....pothole explosions....know what I mean?

Mein Auto:
If you are not trying to go lower, then I always recommend staying with the OEM shocks/struts. With the original set you already know what kind quality ride you are going to get. We carry the OEM Sachs-Boge brand and they come with a limited lifetime warranty, so if you ever have any issues with the shocks or struts you will be covered.

Here is the link to the parts on our site:

Disclaimer: Make sure to check the year and model of the vehicle before placing the order.

I know what kind of ride I got with the OEM Sachs-Boge brand and that is why they went into a dumpster and were replaced with Koni FSDs.

Some advertising is passably good advice.

THIS ISN'T!

FSD for the daily driver....yes....OP, did you look up those pothole explosions? You should.
