I installed them myself and I definitely remember the fronts not using stock bump stop, only a small rubber donut in its place.

Im about 99% sure that I installed my rear OEM bump stops with the B8.

Edit: I'm 200% sure that I installed my OEM rear bump stops with my upgraded Bilstein B8 shocks (and AC Schnitzer spring kit).

The B8 fronts are indeed larger diameter piston and their highest performing shock so I didnt have to use my front bump stops.

With the B6 - you may. Not sure.
I never said anything about the rear shocks' bumpstops . I was saying that you actually do have bump stops in the front, and that they're internal to the struts themselves. The rubber "donut" isn't a bump stop.
