Default Bilstein B6 sport for the S8

Hi.

Anybody here running Bilstein B6 Sport on their 2001 S8?


If so, how are these compared to the OEM shocks?

And do anyone have a suggestion to a nice price site online for ordering? The dealers here in Norway wants $300 each.


From Bilstein online Catalogue i find 2 different shocks for the front.

Bilstein B6 Sport (to build year 04.00) Front: 24-026093 Rear: 24-026161
Bilstein B6 Sport (from build year 05.00) Front 24-066785 Rear: 24-026161

Since i'm trying to get these from the US (since the price is less then half) i can only find the once for the 2001 model
since the S8 Facelift didnt arrive over there before 2001.

Anybody have a clue if the 01 shocks will fit my 00 S8?


Any help would be very appreciated.

I just ordered a set of bilsteins B6 sports from ecstuning.com....the rears are universal but it says theres a pre-'01 and post '01 set for the fronts......I have an '03 S8 and am anxious to get them on, Ive heard that the bilsteins are maybe 5% stiffer compression than the stock red S8 shocks, which should make them just about perfect in my opinion....I'll give my impressions next week once theyre installed.

From what can see. the 99/00 S8 uses the same shocks as the 99-02 A8 4.2(310bhp)

I would def like to find out the difference...

So i'm gonna do a bit more research before i order.
