    That actually looks like the first version. The new version moves the rod end substantially inboard and down. BMR is probably not going to scrap their existing inventory of the first design, they’ll sell those out first.

    I see it now. I'll have to call them and see if they will swap them out.

    They will likely swap them out. Call in. I had to buy the plates because I bought the mounts new but from forum member and not bmr direct.

    Those are the original versions as mentioned. 20191227_200942.jpg 20191227_201045.jpg

    Just got mine installed along with Bilstein shocks and BMR handling springs. Install was pretty easy. IMG_20200105_155534.jpg

    Do the Bilstein shocks use an internal jounce bumper, or is that just the struts?

    The B6 HD struts use the internal stops, the shocks use external.

    The bumpstops are a pain to install. Hardest part of all of that shown above. The shaft on the Bilsteins is much thicker than the OEM PP shocks so it takes a lot of force pushing down to get the threads to show on the top of the shock. Once I was able to get the lock nut and a washer on, I used a wrench to tighten it down to help move the bumpstop down further.

    Someone else made a comment that the BMW M3 bumpstops fit perfectly.

    what's the diameter of the bilstein shaft? obviously not 10mm. The Eibach bumpers are dual-diameter. Most of it is 12mm, the last 8mm is 9mm to grip the shaft.

    I don't know if this will work, but maybe someone could try soaking the bump stops in hot water to make them swell up a tiny bit.

    If the ID on the bumpstops is too small for the Bilstein shock rod, why not just drill out the bumper?

    Can anyone confirm if these are the first or updated version? I found a deal on these and want to make sure I'm not purchasing the old ones.

    Thanks Screenshot_20200522-115816_Facebook.jpg
