    More I read this thread more I feel the need of having one more strut as a spare... This is sick to have double spares for most of the parts... I got this sickness for the first time when I finished my P car ad it looks like it got me again with MB. Sooo I contacted the company in Poland that sold me the 285611 strut and they can supply more. I ordered one - price is 32,8 EUR net per piece. I asked the seller if he's ok to ship the parts within EU - he has no problems with shipping overboard.
    I have no intention to hijack or spoil this thread but I thought that for EU located guys it could be easier to purchase within the Europe to save on shipping and customs fees. I have no affiliation with the company and can post the details if it is ok with admins and thread starter, just let me know.

    Darek, can you confirm the 285611 available is genuine Stabilus? And how many are available? Might be easier to source from Poland!

    Re: GROUP BUY: Stabilus Damper/Struts for Center Console Lid

    This IS getting interesting.

    Given the confusion around the availability of the 285611, (all of which is in direct conflict with the information I have gotten from Mike at OrrOrr, btw) I have had reached out to a different supplier located here in the US (not OrrOrr), who has sent me a quote for the Stabilus 285611. I have asked him directly to confirm that he can in fact STILL procure the 285611, and I have not gotten a definitive response from him, despite my specific inquiry.

    The only thing I am left with is the information that Mike at OrrOrr has provided; that Stabilus is changing manufacturers for the mini strut they provide, and have decided that the 699233 is 'functionally equivalent' to the old 285611. Even though, as GSXR has pointed out, that is not technically true per the diagrams. Mike has indicated that he has checked and that 285611 is not longer available from Stabilius. This in addition to the lack of a solid commitment from the other supplier that he can in-fact deliver the 285611 leads me to believe that this is the case.

    I will see if I can reach out to Stabilus directly to get to the bottom of this. Its driving me nuts a little bit!

    Small update.

    I reached out to Stabilus USA on Friday, but was only able to leave a message. I hope to hear from them Monday.

    I want to get all of this info regarding what struts are actually available settled first before monies start exchanging hands.

    Thanks all for your patience!

    Another small update, with not much to report.

    Mike at Orr Orr is still checking with Stabilus to see if they would be willing to modify the 699 PN on their own to fit our application.

    I have not heard back from Stabilus themselves. I will attempt to call again either today or tomorrow.


    Again, thanks for your patience.
