    Brilliant attention to detail in all of your work. Who is (or was) the manufacturer of the CAN bus simulator module?

          Superb work, shame the seller has increased the price that way.

            The car sits for so long It even flatspotted the tires but recently I fixed another issue which was long overdue. The original spings were so corroded the front left even broke. So I decided to replace springs and shocks on all 4 corners. It happened to be a nightmare to get the proper part number for shocks as the manufactures catalogues are incomplete. The car has sport suspension from the factory so I wanted to get the correct shocks for it. So I gave the VIN to the retailes and only one Monroe model appears to be compatible - but that is not the case in reality. What I did was to go to ETKA, get the OE number for the correct shock absorber and search by OE number. And voila - multiple options appeared. I asked a friend who is very experienced in this platform which are closest to stock and he advised me to go with KYB Excel-G. Fronts are made in Japan and have the fat rod like the OEM Sachs, The the rears were a bit of a disappointment, the rubber bush where the bottom bolt goes trough has like 30% less material than the OEM ones.
            For the springs it was an easy desision, I got an Eibach pro-kit, ordered the wrong one due to the well known (not by me) issue with Eibach catalogue but by sheer luck they hapened to fit my needs perfectly

            And the final result, on the rear the rubber spacer that sits on the top of the spring was the thicker version and that is why the back sits a bit higher. I was thinking to get the proper spacers, but on the other hand I think with 3 people on the back seat and luggage it will sit just right
