Is anyone using these Koni Special Shocks (Reds) with on a SEL? Front Part #: 26-1157 Rear Part #: 30-1020.
The Yellows Jono speaks of are still elusive.
They are apparently adjustable. What is an appropriate setting for a 380 SEL? 1, 2 or 3 clicks?
I am thinking of using them with a set of H&R springs.
How do these rate against the Bilstein HD's?

I have 560SEC with adjustable Koni red ones - I can`t say it`s good choice. They are fragile and after riding a while you have to adjust them as "hard" as you can otherwise they are like stock ones.

I prefer non-adjustable Bilsteins for sure. But it`s just my opinion I don`t care if parts are nice and shiny. I do care if they work fine and as I like!

Koni's do require rebuilding, but they are more aggressive on damping out of the box..

Yes, yellows are just Gone @ this point..

There is the option of having one's bilsteins re-valved as well:)
