they should check the shock tubes neways. i would have to say i wouldnt be comfortable beating down on my car, knowing that the shocks arent a 100% nemore! its their fault. i would demand new shocks, just to play it safe. event though nothing is evidently wrong! but whatever happens g.l man! pretty shitty quality control. and ur dealer isnt to sharp either if they let sumthing like that slip through the cracks!

It sucks that it happened to you...

I'm a BMW tech, and I'll tell you, you haven't damaged your shock. Those bump stops get left in every now and then, but it is no indication of the quality of your dealer. a PDI is up to exactly ONE person, the tech assigned to the vehicle. He was in a hurry, and missed. He WILL get his ass chewed.
