option 474: sport shock absorbers - what are they?

Can anyone tell me what the "sport shock absorbers" refers to? Does this mean rear Bilsteins or an uprated Boge? Does this refer to all 4 wheels or just the rears?

Thanks

Isn't that for the M030 only? My car is not M030 equipped as I understand it.

Thanks for the input,

No: I have a non-M030 944S2 with the Sport shock absorbers option (#474), and the original shocks, which are still on my car are the Koni Yellow adjustable shocks.

well...the problem is the PO replaced them with Boges according to my service records. He apparently couldn't afford them.

That's a shame, they probably just needed adjusting a little stiffer to compensate for wear...

FWIW- The factory koni's are an older koni design. The new koni's work much better.
