I really don't know if this statement is true, obviously they did it to avoid the warranty. When I install the coils again im not gonna use the bumpstops.

Vmaxx really need to point this out to customers because most Minis has the bumpstops, even the one at One Motoring! Weird right?
Yeah that's really weird. Because I figured the bump stop would only help..? Seems to me they're trying to avoid replacing so many struts because they have a design failure.
