German term or phrase: Dämpfer
Er hat übertrumpft dabei alle, fährt serienmäßig mit Xenonlicht und elektronisch verstellbaren Dämpfern.

Is it the same as "Stoßdämpfer"?

English translation:damper, shock absorber, attenuator, damper, muffler
Explanation:
It all depends on what "er" is referring to. It it refers to an electric unit, Dämpfer translates to attenuator. If it's a part of the fuel injection unit, Dämpfer translates to damper. If part of the engine/intake-exhaust noise, then it's the muffler. If part of the wheel suspension, then it's the shock absorber (or Stoßdämpfer)
