E46 330d Meyle shocks any good?
 
So the Meyle wishbones & RCABs are reckoned to be pretty good, but has anyone used or know what Meyle shock absorbers are like?

I need some new front shocks for my 330d, Meyle ones are going for 50ea all in, (actually it looks like I can get a pair for 84! :))
Or its Monroes for 60-70ea (Boge are too expensive @ ~192 the pair)

TIA :)

Myle makes dampers? In any case, Bilstein dampers come with a lifetime warranty and Bilstein is a known Company for selling solid dampers. As for the type of Bilstein damper they make a HD or heavy duty damper that is just marginally stiffer than stock, and then they make a sport shock that is valved tighter (with a shorter piston length to work wth lowering springs) to provide more stability at higher cornering speeds; of course, this sport damper will transmit more road irregularities through the chassis. If a stiff ride is not agreeable, choose the HD dampers.

I don't want a stiffer ride, it's too stiff as it is :P ;)
Unfortunately Bilstein shocks are 188 a pair vs 84 for Meyle!

Anyone else on Meyle?
