Wait until you drive on these. The ride quality and handling is exceptional. It's no wonder that many top end exotics like the Lamborghini, Ferrari and Pagani uses Ohlins.

I miss my Ohlins DFV from my previous car.
I am pretty sure these one come from Sweden not Japan. The Sweden Ohlins are supposed to have the higher quality than the Japanese ones. Not all R&Ts however comes from Sweden.
I highly doubt there is any differential between an Ohlins built in Japan or Sweden. Not certian what parts are made where, but Japanese manufacturing is super high quality and meticulous.
