    I'm replacing the front struts in my 03 and I had to literally destroy the plugs that cover the access holes for the bolts in the engine bay. I can't seem to find a part number for them anywhere. Does anybody have any ideas?

    Anyone have experience DIY'ing the front struts on a the NMS? Would like to know if it's practical to do before I go in to get them checked (I have scalloping on the rear tires, looked and saw my rear shocks leaked... I know I can do that job DIY). Any help/advice would be welcome.

Bilstein Sport Shocks - Best Price on Bilstein B8 Sport Shock Absorbers & Struts anyone running those? Are they a huge difference?
