Re: Alfa factory shocks + suspension or not?
Boge are the base range of sachs dampers. They were factory supplied to some 33 special versions, and they are standard in most of german made cars (VAG, Mercs, BMWs).
My setup is H&R springs (-35mm) and Sachs Sports Line Performance, Sachs top of the range dampers. They're a lot cheaper than Bilsteins, and I think they're not as hard as Koni in normal driving, and then they get as hard as Koni in aggressive driving, cornering and (unfortunately for my back) at high speed cruising. Oh, and they prevent my sump of breaking again!
