something wrong with these shocks?

hello, i was looking at this set of OEM shocks off a 335xi with low miles. do the shocks look normal or do they look de-pressurized? thanks

you wont know til you push them in...if they arent really stiff then they are gone...but either way i would never buy used oem shocks. they suck and why would you take the chance...even if they were just given to you you might just end up wasting time putting them in to find out they suck lol.

you might as well just upgarde to a better shock if you are trying to change.

Was the approximate mileage available?

Either way I wouldn't pay more than a couple hundred for them. Check the classifieds here.
