This is assuming the Vento will be able to fit the same shocks as the Polo.

Otherwise also do look online for these Koni shocks. The part number for front is 8741-1548 and for rear is 80-2815.

Sorry to quote an old post, but this website serms to offer great prices. A set of B6 come for just 41k. Does that mean it cost extra 35k for customs and shipping?

And one more doubt. B8 is similarly priced. Is it better than B6 but very hard?

B8 is more for lowered cars, or people who want stiffer shocks than B6. Yes shipping will be 10-15k at least, customs is approx 35% for automobile parts.

Yes Akshay, I tried checking out now. For India, shipping is 20K. Customs, as per you wouod be 14k. That comes to exactly a whopping 75K as suspected

Hi Sir,

How are the struts performing in your i20? I have the 2012 Crdi version, I am sure it can be used in mine too.

Now that you have been using it from last 18 months, can we have a quick review? Also, need your guidance regarding part number and vendor details.

Thanks!
