Thumbs Up Monroe Reflex shocks

I use Monroe Reflex shocks almost 6 years on BMW E39 528i 1997 and jast replaced rear shocks on my remapped Alfa 147 jtd 16v 2003. There very little reviews about this shocks on the net in general.
So I make this post for anyone who want to hear my experience.

First of all they are cheap shocks about 60 euro per shock, the car transformation after installation is amazing. They absorb every hole and bump on the road soft and silent like it is another car. While hard driving car is responsive and harder to roll. Curve speed entering and exiting not comparable to stock shocks both on bmw and alfa, 30%+ better.
Conclusion : Everyone who likes better comfort than stock shocks and wants sporty ride for 60 Euro per shock Monroe Reflex is excellent choice. Think twice before you pay fortune on sport shocks and coils which are only good for track and healing kidney stones .
