New set of struts

Does anyone have experience with Koni "Active" technology struts? My originals have lost their gas charge and I've been looking at alternatives.

They used to be called "Koni FSD", now called "Special Active" - search on that and you should find some info. I've got them and I love them

For me, since late 2016 with a short break in the fall of 2018 when I ran PSS9 for a short spell. Approximately 20,000 miles, mostly highway miles and track miles. Would definitely buy again if I had a car that needed struts and the Koni was an option

I got the koni yellow sport ones for a discount that might be still available and I love them (street use). I coupled them with H&R lowering springs (not part of the discount). I’ll check if the discount is still available if you ask.
