Angry Suspension tech -the butcher of east tamaki akl

I am very upset at CHRIS ALEXANDER who is supposed to be suspension specialist.
Please if you love your BMW,never never take it to SUSPENSION TECH ,CHRIS ALEXANDER at 19 ORMISTON RD EAST TAMAKI AKL.
HE is as ruff as guts.I went to him to lift my E39 a bit after i fitted a set of NEW Billstein sport shocks and H&R sport springs.It was too low for my liking so i approached CHRIS ALEXANDER. Yes he lifted it a bit but in the process he basically showed no mercy for my car.After doing the inspection at home i found scratches,circlips missing of the stabilizer bar link,broken mount on engine sump cover,hummer marks everywhere.He had no ball joint remover,i find this amazing for a suspension specialist??.So when i disappeared for 15 minutes to get my ball joint removing tool he basically forced and mangled R/H shock and spring out of the shock tower.He never removed the caliper to save the brake line.Used the Craw bar to force it all down against the break line and the steering arm.Incredible it really is.I paid him 300 dollars for 3 hrs of work.I just wanted to be out of there.Please guys dont make the same mistake like me.The man is a lunatic of all lunatics who has no respect for peoples property.I happen to be very fussy person who likes nice things in life.He miscalculated the fact that i already did the job at home and it took me 2 days because i also had to replace all lower tension arms and all stabilizer arms.But i never broke anything and in the process got to know E39 suspension in details.
So there you have it.
