New in box. Ohlins Road and Track Coilovers, 3rd generation for years 2005-2012. LOV1-4D00.
Mounted and realized after calling Ohlin that the “D” in model number is Euro spec, slightly different ride height. I am in US and have federal type. Can not be mounted on US spec cars. My loss is your gain. $2000 US shipped to UK!

I may not be the only one thinking this, but what makes it not mountable on the US cars? I see you mentioned ride height is different, but couldn't it just be adjusted? TIA.

Not even close, front height is taller than rear. After 8 hours on a 1 hour job I called Ohlins USA this morning to ask what could be wrong....I was surprised as well. Ohlins USA does not even list them on there site.

Interesting
The parts manual lists a different standard damper for the USA, but everything else seems to not have a separate part number, FED vs ROW
