Ever heard about this model? BMW using it.

There is for Waja just arrived into the market. I am using for rear now.
Feel softer than KYB and Monroe reflex.

gunnerzz,

haha i know they are diff but in term of which ,odel, have to ask expert.

what i notice is most spare part shop will never ask you whether ur car is
1.6 or 1.8. when i ask back if any diff, they always said "sure can fit
one.."

later u go to PESC, they said " different. cannot use the same"

so who to believe? McCain or Obama?

There are 2 types of SACHS absorbers, namely Super Touring (soft) and
Advantage (hard). For Waja in local market, only Super Touring is
available. The ride is as firm as APM performax and Monroe but with much
less harshness or hardness. You might get bit more body roll comparing
with GV, GAB or HWL. Overall, I would say it improves the ride as well as
ladies and old ppl friendly.
