I was under the impression that you change them in pairs.

BMW class replacing just one as perfectly fine if the car is under 50,000miles. If more then they will replace both as a matter of course. I know what you mean about replacing both per axle. However independant garages say its ok on BMWs but not on others

I had one shock replaced under warranty and they wouldn't replace the other. I kicked up a stink with BMW UK and they didn't want to know. In the end the dealership changed both for me under goodwill, but it was really at a push!
