What's the equivalent OEM shocks/strut


I'm thinking of changing the shocks on my 2001 boxster 2.7 Tip. I'm pretty sure it's still got the original shocks, as the mileage is only 32k km. But felt the shocks are getting tired, probably through age rather than through usage.

The struts are black in color and I'm pretty sure it's NOT a M030 (I checked the anti roll bar size).

Question - what's the equivalent bilstein shock to use ?? The yellow HDs ?? Or are there any other recommendations for shocks to use with the original springs ?

(I've read that the M030 shocks are actually the bilstein sports - as much as I want to convert to the M030 suspension, am afraid that it'll lower the car too much and hit the speed bumps, I can barely cross the bumps now with 2 on-board).
