Thumbs down Sister bought me ebay Coilovers -wtf?- picture included

I'm totally (very) new to the coilover game but I know these are missing a lot from what i've seen on many other vehicles.
This is missing like what it looks like the mounts are and everything.
This is all that came in the box.

HELP?

i don't see anything missing. 99% of coil over kits for the e46 are not true COIL OVER shock in the rear. you will reuse your Top hats or buy new ones.

Who makes that kit?

You'll reuse your shock mounts and that's pretty much all you need. I don't see shorter end links, you might need those.

Good luck.

Now sleep in it, I know the phrase. Yet I don't see how it applies to this situation.

Waste of time and money. Get a refund and save for something better.

Well ST coilovers are great but i'm not sure how you got them for $400. Maybe they're something different? I thought STs were yellow.

What he got are not STs. They are fakes sold on eBay as STs.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1998-2006-BM...c2f6e8&vxp=mtr

Found them by searching "E46 coilovers" and sorting by lowest price first.

Picture of the box reveals that they are branded "G-Plus"

Yeah G-plus was the labeling on the box. That's be them. I have 30 days to return them, according to that seller. I'll find out if that's which she purchased.
