This US owner needs some help and advice from the UK owners...

Hello mates

I am a fellow RX8 R3 owner across the pond in the US. I have been trying to track down a set of Bilstein B8 shortened shock absorbers in the US for my RX8 but the dealers will not order it and Bilstein USA are being real ******* and refuse to work with me direct.

So, google led me to a few UK vendors who carry it and say they will parcel it to me in the US. But, I don't know if I can trust them, per se.

So, do you know of any reputable bilstein dealers who will help me out here?

Here are the ones I found, if you know of others - please recommend them.

Performance Car Parts / EBC Brakes / Eibach Lowering Springs / Koni Suspension Kits / Magnex Exhausts / Powertec Induction Kits - Euro Performance

Balance Motorsport - Performance Car Parts Online & Installed

The balance motorsport chaps seem to be big Bilstein dealers. I have emailed them for a price quote.

I am also contacting a friend in HongKong who is from the UK to see if he knows someone who can help.

Anyways, any help appreciated!

Cheers!

I don't think you'll get done by either of them. They're big part retailers and won't mess you about. Buy it on a credit card and you'll be well protected.

Thanks for taking the time to reply, Will.

I chose to go with Balance Motorsport. Julian there seems to be a decent chap and we have been going back and forth via email. I even called and talked to him. I placed my order yesterday. He said the B8's would be heading to him and then to me...
