Ever heard of OCAP? ABOUT THE COMPANY! Ocap is a renowned high quality Italian company that specializes specifically in the area of steering and suspension parts. We've used these Ocap kits in our own service facility and continue to have great results. Not much is known about Ocap in the Audi Vw realm because their replacement suspension parts are used more on Mercedes, Volvo, and BMW models. However, they are the OEM supplier for Maserati and Lamborghini. They are a TÜV and ISO 9001 certified company. This is one of the most important certifying bodies in Europe. Ocap has also achieved two more important ISO 14001 and ISO/TS 16949 quality certifications. We encourage you to check out their site for more information. www.ocap.it

Let me rephrase...Does anyone have personal experience or knowledge of OCAP?
My local parts place has used them before, no problems. They tend to use those and Bilsteins. I can get you the Bilstein arms (which I have installed on an 04 ZHP) for about $250 or so if that is more trustworthy to you. I put the meyle HD ones on my car and have nothing but good things to say about them as well. Lastly, the front suspension components wear out so fast anyway, I would go with the less expensive pieces because I really don't think they are lesser quality in this case. Hope that helps.

Umm, if you want to be the guinea pig, go ahead. i don't care to which cars they manufacture parts, first time i hear about in the BMW community. OEM has proven to be the best so far in all the generations prior to e46. I don't see any reason to assume otherwise for e46 an on.
