Just had to weigh-in on this one. A few weeks ago I installed a set of Bilstein Comforts on my 1986 420 SEL. To me, it was the best, dollar for dollar, suspension improvement I could have made. Not that the car rode terrible before, even though both left side original equipment shocks were covered in oil, but with the new Bilsteins it truly rides like a fine German touring sedan.
Some people feel the rain, others just get wet.
