Ohlins front coilovers HELP ME

I know im probably not in the right thread thingy but i need everyone to see this because im at a breaking point. I spent 1800 total with S&H on an Ohlins road and track Coilovers pair with not many miles on eBay two months ago. I finally unpacked them today and found this. I am so upset udek. I have spent over 64k in 1.5 years on my 2011 m3 (I bought it for 24k) and im honestly at a breaking point i might just sell it. Its everything i wanted in a car i supercharged it modded tf out of it n its absolutely beautiful but idek i keep getting fucked in the ass with stupid things like this. Ebay only has a one month return policy so i cant do anything. If anyone has a front coilover that matches this i have cash in hand i prefer local im in CT. My number in 8602786191. Please pray for me. Im 22 and my pockets are starting to dry up. Lol. *. OR IF YOU HAVE A SET OF COILOVERS JUST MESSAGE ME WHAT U HAVE PLEASE I NEED SOMETHING QUICK.

What...? Reading this made my eyes hurt. This feels like the FB groups now. You spent 64k on an M3 and then mention you're 22 and your pockets are drying up? Call Ohlins and order a replacement or considering a wash and buy something else.

Buying suspension on eBay was always going to be the riskiest option, especially not verifying immediately after receiving it. Posting it here won't do you much good since Non-M coils won't fit your front knuckles.

That almost had to happen during shipping. Unfortunately I don't think you have any recourse at this point but you could still try filing a claim with the company that was used to ship them. At least you can re use the springs to save a little money but I'd order some new Ohlins shocks for them. Sorry that happened, that sucks!

If it happened during shipping, which is did not mind you, the box would have had to be fucked 6 ways from Sunday.

If the OP is who he says he is then he knows the solution to his problems. Again, this is his second thread on the matter and plenty of advice was already given to him.

Dude is 22 years old and dropping that much coin on an M3? And I thought my priorities were out of whack. Damn. Sell those parts, put the older suspension back on, list it for sale, and get it sold. Depending on the mileage maybe he breaks even. The used car market is already starting to correct. The fun flying around in the markets is drying up.
