Look ok. Be sure to see what they will charge for shipping. I've seen German sellers really jack up prices to ship to the US.

That's a great deal if you can get it.

I used those same Sachs units on my '99 S500 sedan only I paid about $475 ea.

Replace the the accumulators at the same time; they're cheap.

Once i replace the struts, do i need to bleed the system again, like when replacing the actuators, by raising and lowering the leveling valve underneath the car ?

How does one know if when all the air is out of the system ? Is raising and lowering it from the valve once enough ?

Do the raise/lower drill a few times, maybe 3-4 and you are done. The system is supposed to self bleed, but I prefer the raise and lower approach.

And at the same time to check the reservoir in the engine compartment to make sure it's filled properly while engine is running, and just add fluid.

Thank you very much.

I did the Bilstein rubber bushing replacement and I’m not happy at all.

Edit: only to find out that I commented on the tread in 2016 🤦‍♂️
