While swapping in the M5 rear sway bar this past weekend I noticed that the rear shocks were externally white. The car has 80K miles and the records I have don't mention replacement. I hope these aren't Gabriels...
What would have been found originally?
Thanks in advance!

They are probably the original and I seem to recall that they were sachs on my 530.

The original Sachs shock for the sport suspension have an unpolished aluminum (silverish) outer tube. It could be mistaken for white.
