Hi

I have a dilemma

I have a 2013 Audi A5 2.0 TDI Sportback S Line.
I want to replace the shock absorbers and I’ve been given two options from euro car parts and GSF:

  • sports suspension
  • standard chassis

which one am I supposed to go for?

Personally I would not purchase from either of those 2 shops. Even with their discount codes its still expensive.
Try https://www.autodoc.co.uk. They based in German and does take about 2 weeks to arrive.
Its free delivery if you spend over £150.

I purchased 4 shocks for my 2009 A5. OEM Sach brand £40 each rear and £52 each front. Lemforder front strut mounts £9 each side. You download their app on your phone and keep an eye on the discount. It changes daily..

You’re absolutely right... there seems to be a substantial difference.
I was going to buy the KYB shock absorbers as recommended by the garage.
I wonder if anyone has any experience of these.

I try not to go lower than OEM quality. Sach is normally OEM for Audi and BMW.

I am sure nothing wrong with KYB.

I am curious how much garage charge to replace front strut on A5. I am looking to replace these myself when weather improves. Did the job on previous vehicle BMW and took best part of Sun morning to complete both sides.
