Just reiterate the problem with seeing broken shockers,this is how the shock will look on the rear of the car........

Looks fine......until you undo one of the retaining bolts and this happens.......

The plastic cover masks the problem.The shocks tend to break off right at the top.This one is off a Megane 1 Coupe(Unipart replacement number GSA20210,52+vat each),but any Megane 1,Scenic or Lag 1 can do the same.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
