Default R8 Magnet ride Shock replacement

I have a 10 plate V10 with the magnet ride suspension of which I have just had replaced a shocker because the fluid had leaked out-the garage said that the other three were showing signs of leakage too-now I don't want to get rid of the car as I can't find anything else that I want to replace it with, so my question is, is there an alternative option other than original parts or can the old shockers be reconditioned?

I did hear that there is a company in Poland that can refurbish the Mag ride.

Quote from another R8 owner.

Nagengast charge €250 per strut. All 4 were 860.00 posted. Initially. 30 to send so for 4 new was less than 900!
Regeneration of shock-absorbers

Regards

Thats fantastic and just what I was looking for, thanks so much for taking the time to reply. Looks like I might just keep the R8 for a tad longer.
