I'm speaking for a friend of mine, p0tpie.

Today was going to be his lucky day to get those Acs 19'' type 3s. He was gonna go pick them up and install them at D2. However, on the way there, his shocks broke and he could smell the burning of the tires. the smoke stanked. Well..he had to have a tow truck tow his car to D2 and is now there until wed, hopefully he can get those rims and new tires he ordered. So basically this was a pretty bad day for him and his coilover system was installed at Ef1 motorsports.

Should he call Fabrizio and complain, sue, or something?

Ahh. This sounds like the lower shock mount problem. Bilstein didn't include washers for the lower shock bolt. This makes the shock vulnerable to popping right off the mount. You can read about it on www.my330i.com. A lot of us who have been on the boards for a while and run PSS/PSS9 kits have fixed this weakness by installing some washers.
