Not hatin', dude, but you said "brand new, never used" and the rubber area with the cracked paint, etc, doesn't look new. I dunno, maybe they come painted and after time the paint on the rubber (which would come off when you bolt them off) just chipped off? Anyway, they don't look new, but they don't look used either. The stickers make them look new. :?

(Just defending M50E30, they DID look rusty.)

Thank you everlast.

I still think are they used and new ones go for just a couple of bucks more. And i'm not a "hater".......I just don't like seeing rust on "new" parts.

I did say best offer, so I will take what I can get for them, as long as its not next to nothing, BTW, isnt bav auto prices in US$$??

The paint on the rubber chips off very easily even when you touch them it flakes off. They have never been bolted on a car. They are just scratched from being moved around the garage too many times

M50E30 - I do see what you mean about the rust, my bad on my part, I was a bit pissed that day, hehehe, sorry bro for callin ya a hater

Yes, Bav auto is defineately in USD, and don't forget that us canucks would have to pay duty AND taxes from Bavauto. Even then though, the shocks new are only $80US, so the total would be a little over $200USD plus delivery, so $300 CND is a fair price. Free bump.

For some reason they don't list a Sport shock for the ix? :confused:

Has anyone used 318is, 325e, 325es, 325i, & 325is shocks in an ix? :huh?:

SebSter 04-12-2005 12:37 PM

^ I know the front shocks are different, tried.

But, I think the rear is the same, I dont see why it would be any different the rear ends of the cars seem to be identical.
