    Default (another) 205 question

    it's well and truly time for new shocks in my 205. i realise there has been extensive coverage of this topic in other threads, but i'm still torn between two options :
    genuine peugeot or the slightly more affordable konis.
    this brings me to a couple of questions.
    firstly to ray bell, are the prices you quoted last year for the koni yellows still current, and do you know current stock levels?
    secondly, to those who have experienced both genuine and koni, are the pug shocks worth the extra approx $130?
    i am not looking for an especially firm ride but soemthing that replicates the original ride and handling quality.
    any advice appreciated.

    McPherson is a top shock u can't go wrong with them... remember your car maybe up to 15 years old and new shocks will bring another 15 years where u don't have 2 think about shocks.

    $130 dollars divided by 15 years? SFA.

    Luca, sweetheart, you are jesting aren't you about the McPherson brand shocks?
    Koni dont make a bad product, but dont get the mean ultra sports ones. Having said that I would go for the factory inserts unless they cost too much.
