You know, given the price difference between new Bilsteins at Rock Auto vs. new-manufacture Arnott struts, I can see the point...on non-4Matic, i. e. RWD, cars.
For 4Matic cars, though, the price difference is several hundred dollars between Bilsteins and new-manufacture Arnotts, so I'd probably go for the Arnotts in that case. Since the lady and I happen to prefer the Sport 1 setting, that would work out pretty well for us.
