    Im after any feedback from who have these fitted in the Sportline variant. whats the ride like and general handling/feel etc?

    Im thinking about going for the b12 Sportline kit as opposed to the Pro-kit. ive found the Pro-kit for 594 but cant seen to find the Sportline kit.

    also any pics of them fitted in both spring variants would be great.

    Does anybody know if Bilstein shocks come with bump stops?

    Purchased the B8's separately as I found them cheaper than the B12 kit, Strange!
    The only thing I'm missing are the front and rear bump stops.
    I've heard that Bilsteins have internal bump stops but I'd rather not rely solely on them or would it be overkill?
    As the B8's are a shorter shock I'm assuming I need shorter bump stops.
    After a quick search I landed on 4F0412131D as it seems to look shorter than another variant.

    Is there anyone that can confirm.

    Not 100% sure about what I am going to tell U but I think B8 have thicker rod then standard shocks, so a bump stop is different......

    Oh ok I didn't know that, thanks.
    I'll have a search for a Bilstein catalogue and see if I can find specific bump stops for the B8's.

    Does anyone know if you still use the rubber spring seat part no# 4F0412109 with the Bilstein kit as they aren't included. Or is it simply spring onto the metal base? Which doesn't sound right to me.��

    ok so I've found that part no# 4F0412109 is the Top spring seat but is it the same part no for the bottom spring seat?

    So i need some help as I'm still having trouble confirming the part number for the bottom spring seat.
    All I've got is Part No# 4F0412066 & 8D0412066F but there's not alot of info on the web which leads me to believe its either the wrong part number or there's a new part number for it.
    Dealers wont tell me! I'm just missing this last bit before i can build my shocks & springs up.

    So part no# 4F0412109 is the bush that's fitted to the top mount. And it seems it's the same for the bottom spring seat bush.
    But it seems that you can't actually purchase part no# 4F0412109!! Strange!
    Apparently I have to buy part no# 4F0412066 which is the metal spring seat and includes part no#4F0412109 ( 1 part no# for 2 parts)!! which I dont need.

    So am I really having to buy 4F0412066 for the part I need "4F0412109"

    Is there absolutely no one that's fitted Bilsteins that could shed some light on this as I'm baffled. Bilstein include the metal spring seat disk but not the rubber bush, Audi don't seem to sell the rubber bush without the metal seat disk. What a faff!
