I was looking around in the classifieds and saw some grooved bilstein sports with about 50,000 miles on them and used for about two years. Are these two used/old to buy. He is asking like $325 shipped. should I not bother and just get new ones or try to talk him down in price. (keep in mind i am a college student)

and i searched quite a bit on this and didnt want to waste anymore time....

thanks.

I had bought a pair of used Bilsteins for my 2nd A4 (the one you were interested in...[:D]) and they worked fine. I wouldn't pay any more than $250-$275 shipped though (I paid $275 shipped with about 20k miles on them). They do carry a million mile warranty for the original owner so you might want to see if the person you are buying them off of is just that. That way, if one of them should go bad, you can have him send it in for you.

I had an "ace in the hole" so to speak when I bought my used set in that I had the original receipt from my first A4 (Bilsteins also).

Good luck.[up]
