Audi A3 shock absorber width

7v7

Hi everyone, I'm shopping for front shock absorbers for Audi A3 Sportback 2013. 8V (2.0TDI 110KW, CRBC S-Line).

Since I bought Sachs for rear suspension 2 years ago, I'm gonna go with Sachs for front suspension.

Problem is that Sachs offers two different widths, 50mm and 55mm for front suspension and I can't find nowhere which do I need for my car. Can someone give me some advice how can I be 100% sure which width to buy (without manually measuring current shock absorbers)?

Do you still have the label on the front shocks with the part number on it ? If so, I'm pretty sure that the Sachs website will show you the correct replacement part (or the newer version)

For my rears, I just stuck my phone in the wheel arch and took a photo of the label.
