Garage List
2008 E92 335i  [4.74]
Not saying that you're wrong BUT...I CAN see how the shocks could look like that with minimal miles on them. They can get roughed up quick. Again not taking his side...that sux...just saying..don't worry they might still have low miles. And even 10000 isn't bad on these shocks.

With that said, I went through a horror with mine. The bottom nut that was on my OEM shock (ONLY the bottom ones oddly enough) was the wrong size and I ended up stripping my threads pretty bad.

Just take your time and find a reputable machine shop and get them re-threaded with smaller threads. That's what I ended up doing after trying other shit and it worked out great...

Seeing more and more of these on here lately it seems...can't believe (well, I can) there are so many idiots in this world...

Yes it has been retapped with 9x1.25 dye which finding that nut was impossible but I had to order it and have it shipped . It has all worked out but its the principal of the whole deal. He is working on getting my a partial refund

sorry sister. maybe you can't catch the sarcasm. Just letting you know how talented you were just in case you didn't know already. I think I should stop though, because given your itrader rating your three times awesome.

This was not an Itrader battle ( on my part anyways ). I was simply giving my input trying to help this guy out for future transactions with people and this guy decided to be a smartass saying I described myself as if I had scammed someone before. I could care less what my Itrader feedback looks like, I only mentioned I had 3 feedback cause he was saying I was describing myself when taking about being cautious about people with NO Itrader feedback which I'm sure alot of people on here are also.
