Anyone install Sachs?

It appears they make near OEM replacement parts. My 07 335i SP has 66K miles on it now and the rear shocks squeak. I like the SP feel and these run $270 a pair from bavauto. What do you guys think? Any other suggestions?

Haven't used them as replacements, but if you go to realoem.com, you may find that Sachs made your original equipment shocks and struts. They also make expensive coilovers, though haven't seem much info on them here. Guessing they are decent quality.

You can also buy Koni yellows for less, if you're interested in other options, especially if adjustable damping appeals to you.

edit: fcpeuro has good pricing on the Sachs

Sachs is a German OE manufacturer.
Their products are quality.
