I think Bilstein B4 is the standard shock, search eBay for prices (about £240 each from memory?)

Euro Car parts sell them, the price is eye watering! - You would need to be committed to the cause.

If you wish to maintain your standard setup have you considered having your current dampers refurbished?

Hi Star,
I know you want to keep it standard but the M030 is still a genuine factory option so not viewed as detrimental in any way. It also is only a very conservative drop in height, in most cases slightly disappointing for people who want a noticeable drop, so it will look and feel very standard.

There's a 39k mile set for sale in the classifieds on here for £250. If your car has covered a lot more miles than those I'd give them a lick of paint and stick them on. Or you can buy the full kit including anti roll bars for £1000 from main dealer.

Only thing I'm not 100% on is if the cabriolet has different spring rates for the extra weight. Can't see it affecting anything as the extra weight is only that of a passenger or some luggage.

Failing that it's off to the main dealers for your standard stuff.

Thumb

Hi

Just had to refresh my suspension on my C4 cab due to a broken spring.

Mine is lowered with H&R springs so needed to replace with the same and they are only available in a complete set.

I got mine from ECP after talking to the branch got them for £279.00 inc vat. They had them the following morning for me to pick up.

If you are doing this yourself you will need a impact wrench and 16mm socket and a set of coil spring compressors.

As you mentioned you will need top mounts & bearings. I did bump stops at the same time.

Happy to give you my insight on doing the fronts if interested. Also got a set of brand new front pair b4 for what they cost me...£324+shipping. Found I did not need them once I stripped the front down.

Picture shows ride height with H & R fitted

Might be worth speaking to Bilstein UK as they can rebuild dampers for around £80+VAT from memory.
