New AC Schnitzer badge added to the tailgate. There was an old design badge there when I bought the car back in 2010 but I was never really sure about the look of that one

Very nice car, I love the wheels Is the ACS suspension the same as the Bilstein B12 set (B8 with Eibach I believe). I’m in doubt changing my KW V2 suspension for a B12 set so I’m curious if the Bilstein will be a good choice for me.

Hi Neil, they're definitely based on Bilstein shocks, but I'm not 100% sure which sure, but I think ChrisW did suggest that they were B8. The springs feature ACS markings - if you look in DaveP's Schnitzer photos thread, I'm pretty sure he's very recently posted a photo of the ACS springs which may provide further info to confirm part number

I just enjoy driving the car, I've not much knowledge of part numbers
