Bilstein Shocks Swiped In Socal.


Recommended Posts

Last Friday (12/13/2013), our UPS driver was followed by a van who was stealing deliveries. Swiped from the front door patio was a package containing a set of Bilstein shocks which had been modified and custom-valved for a 2002 race car build. The rear shocks look like typical HD's, but shorter. The fronts also look like 2002 inserts, but also are shorter.

Obviously, this is not the type of item one could put under the tree and say, "Hey, look - I bought you some shocks for Christmas." Perhaps they went straight to the dumpster; or, just maybe, they'll try to sell them locally...

Should anyone in the area (LA/OC/LB) see or hear of an individual trying to sell off any new-looking Bilstein's, please make a note of it and get in touch. Reward provided for safe return of the set. Thanks. -KB

Sorry to hear. Must be the season.  One of my deliveries to the PNW was stolen out of a customers mailbox. Sheriff recovered a bunch of junk mail down the road but not the order. Its a shame people dont work as hard at an honest living as they do trying to screw everyone around them. Best of luck getting them back

Hi Ken,


Presuming you have an ebay account, you might want to set up an alert on your account to auto alert you to Bilstein shocks.  Here's how:


Sign in to your Ebay account. 
Go to My Ebay. 
Click Favorite Searches (on the left side of screen). 
Click "Add New Search" (on right). 
Enter your search terms into the form. 

When the results show, you will get a pop-up window that says "Save as Favorite Search." There is an option in this window to have results emailed to you. You may choose how long this lasts, etc. 


This is a great tool when you're looking for something specific.


To set an alert for Craigslist posts, you can use Google to do troll and alert too:

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
