    Default Front dampers

    Take it these are genuine and if so at that price a bargain is it not?

    Hey lads, I've a full set on order from Courts but I've been waiting a while, it appears there's a huge back order for these from GM/Opel, I ordered mine 1st May but Courts are still waiting on a single unit... BUT £802 posted IS a great price given the Stealers listings - I was going down the after-market route until I saw these, still would have been a lot cheaper but I wanted to keep it pretty standard...

    I wonder if brand new ones are any good set up wise over something like B8's?

    I liked my B8’s. I think they are comparable when IDs is active that’s all. Like for like replacement.

    That’s what’s going on Betty next month as I have my OSF shock ‘misting’ oil

    They are definately genuine, have a pair of rears fitted as off tuesday. A lot cheaper than the nearest supplier i could find (Autovaux).

    Mine had leaky shocks when I bought it and I was considering aftermarket until I called Courtenay. They order them from Opel and avoid the yuuuuuge Vauxhall dealer markup.
