Angry The reason for terrible accident

I purchased a set BC coilovers on May 2008 and installed the kit in my car . I only drive my car for daily work, and have put it approximately 4000 miles.

I drove my car on highway with my family last Sunday, all of a sudden, I had this happen to me after the car was out of control (see the attached images).

Holly shit, it was ridiculous!! The product is a crap, I am going to sue this company for this ‘shit’ product.

Hopefully your family were not hurt nor the car damaged!

Taken from the BC web-site;-
BC Racing products are TUV certified so you are safe in the knowledge that the coilovers are of the highest quality and standards. The TUV certificate is your guarantee that the BC Racing coilovers are 100% fit for purpose.

TÜVs (short for Technischer Überwachungs-Verein, Technical Monitoring Association in English) are German organizations that work to validate the safety of products of all kinds to protect people and the environment against hazards.

Did you buy the coilovers from BC or from another source? It's just that many Asian, usually chinese companies, make fake copies of branded motor parts complete with DOT and TÜV certificates and logos.

Did you install them yourself or did a mechanical shop do the work?

Always buy a branded product for your car because your and your family's life depends on it.
