Skocks?

Typically, how long would my shocks last before they need to be replaces?
Or do they even have to be replaced?
I purchased my 325i Oct of 05 and I have Bridgestone 16s on there.
Thanks.

It might depend on how you drive. I would say by 40k-50k they should be changed. But keep in mind Im no expert.

Oh, and welcome to the board

if you dont lower it, stock shocks should last you a long time, 6-7 years no problem.

you should have no problems with your current shocks for awhile.

Right, as long as you dont pair the shocks with springs that they weren't made for, they should last you a good 5 years at the very least.
