I was browsing through a buyers guide for the Biturbo in BMW car and noticed the prices quoted for the rear self levelling dampers...£748 each!!
I had to replace the rear self levellers on my M5 which being a 3.8 also had edc. I was quoted c£500 each and took the decision to junk the lot and put on a Hartge kit which was a great improovement and only cost £1200 in total.
With the thought that edc units seem to fail on M5s from 50,000 miles onwards I have a few questions:
1. How long can we expect the rear self levelling dampers on Biturbos to last?
2. When they do go is there an altenative to the Fitchel and Sachs ?
3. If so what are they and has anyone tried them?
