    Question Re: Rear strut recommendations?

    I've used both before.
    for ride comfort stick to B4. B6's can be a little stiff but they are more "sporty". flatter cornering and faster response rate.

    Question Re: Brake issue

    wow the 987 crowd seems to be really quiet these days.

    1. check the previous fix if its still holding up
