Eventually, what was left of the spring perch twisted and its edge cut into the inner sidewall of the tire. Perfectly good tire was ruined.

At any rate....I was able to get an OEM Sachs Boge strut from PartsGeek.com, right front Part number 31 31 6 751 132, for something over $200. SDealer wanted $297.
Could've gotten 2 Bilsteins shipped from Bavauto for $270. Lifetime warranty too.
