Shocks better get new one only as used one is not at all advisabel that will throw preblem after 2-6 montsh again. You can get cheaper one from sharjah bm road dealers. they have original and aftermarket option both whatever u like as ur budget.

I will try them. The new one at the Audi Dealership is around AED 10,000 which is way beyond my budget. The same, I can get from US for about AED 5000. Hope I can find a good price locally.

There's one in Deira Near the Gargash Service Centre, sorry I forgot the exact location but it is within that vicinity, they can give the brand new for as low as 3000aed.

Hi all,

Anyone have any update or recent experience with air shock strut replacement for S8?  Need a fairly solid recommendation which can do analysis and if necessary replacement on the same day, as coming up to Dubai from Abu Dhabi.

Thanks a lot in advance for any info.

If you really want solid stuff and once for all go for arnott suspension who comes with some good number of kms warranty like 200-300K (not sure exact warranty), but it's not cheap.

Thanks cyborg, I read some good things about Arnott.  Better than original Audi by some accounts...  Are there any direct suppliers in the UAE? I only found them on desertcart.ae or directly via the Arnott US website (no foreign credit cards accepted).
