It is hard to believe because most people go with other brands... Here are my experience:

Mercedes 1:
OEM MB shocks: 115K miles
Current MB Bilstein: 67K miles

Caddilac Fleetwood (Beast/Boat)
OEM GM shocks:35K miles
Current Bilstein: 90K miles

I have seen other Bilsteins on MB road warriors... who logs in like 200,000+ miles on their Bilsteins

Just installed a set on my E34... and know I won't ever have to change it again.
