    Thats brilliant thanks for sorting out the springs as well Alex !  ;D

    Is this a limited time only offer or will they always be available from the shop ?

    The Konis?  There was only a very limited number available in Europe, so we made arrangements to secure all of them.  Once they've gone, others will be available, but it might take a little while to get them in.

    Probably a couple of hours but labour costs vary across the country.

    I found a specialist company who will fit the dampers and use a proper laser alignment system to check the chassis is set right following fitment and they have suggested its about 1-1.5 hours work for them to fit. Will provide full details after I have used them next week.

    Waiting for your report BH, where abouts (roughly) is your fitting place?

    are these now fitted as part of the esseesse kin on the A500? or is it still the standard ones?
