What made you choose this particular product?
The Struts on my car failed and were causing some issues. I have always been one to buy factory or better parts. I chose Bilstein for their performance and quality that seemed to shadow the competition.
Is this your first time buying from this brand? Did you consider other brands?
This was my first time buying shocks, I did a lot of research covering all my options and Bilstein was the best option for what i wanted out of my car.

No, I did consider some KWs, but Bilstein warranty is awesome.
Was it easy to install? Any installation tips that will help others?
I installed it myself in about 4 hours.

Easy is relative

What made you choose this particular product?
Excellent value for a lightweight fully customizable damper with future upgradability (remote reservoir, rebound / compression adjustable shaft, etc).
Is this your first time buying from this brand? Did you consider other brands?
Considered Koni but Bilstein has better aftermarket support for the end-user to revalve the dampers. Koni only sells parts to authorized Koni rebuilders, but Bilstein sells to the public.
Was it easy to install? Any installation tips that will help others?
The ASN series shocks do not include oil or valving. They need to be valved, filled, assembled, and charged with nitrogen by the end user. Not an easy DIY because of all the special tools required, but worth it if you need custom valving and want to revalve them in the future.
Once you've had a chance to use the product, did it meet your expectations?
Works great!
