Last WednesdayI found out a leaking front RHS damper.
You already know what comes next, don't you?
I am thinking of getting new shock absorbers all around. I have been in talks with Simon Rogers however, shelling out close to 1.8k (Nitron) wasn't in my original plans.
A friend as fitted Protechs and speaks well of them. Another friend has Nitrons fitted and speaks well of them.
I live in Portugal, as you all know, and I don't have the luxury of having the shock absorbers' builders at my door step, so I really need to take in count build quality, service intervals and potential problems.
I am yet to decide what I will be getting but, I'm trying to collect as much information about personal experiences on shock absorbers on Sevenesque cars.
How can one justify £600 to £1800? It is 3 times the price and, if servicing costs are similar then, isn't it false economy? Usually but by no means always, more expensive means better, would this be the case?
How can you confuse me more?

Passenger and luggage. Yes and yes. We sometimes take longer multi-day trips and I usually take the beloved wife and luggage to suit. We don't use a ReBag. I can fairly say we make do without luxuries in our SV
