My Ride: BMW 330i ZHP
Late night brain fart!

So I fitted some nice new RSMs in my ZHP last night ... finished after midnight. Was pretty exhausted but thought I'd take it out for a quick test drive to make sure the clunking had gone. All excited i reversed out of the garage and one really really big clunk happened .. WTF?!?! Did I not attach the RSM correctly, perhaps I didn't torque up the lower shock bolt????? Turned around and saw my wife's car on the driveway with a newly dented front fender. AAARRRGGHHHH!!!

IDIOT!
