BIG ISSUE: SOME 2011 GC are not able to install BC or maybe for all! with Pic

I got 2011 GenCoupe , made date is 2010. Sep.

Well, today I went to aftermarket shop to install BC V1 coilovers like everyone else here who purchased BC.

the most weired things happened..I was told it's not able to install front two shocks because they don't fit with the car. (the shop I went / did installed 4 GC with BC suspensions before! All ok without a problem, but yes, no 2011 GC) The fault part is not from BC, BC V1 is exactly same like before. However the GC has changed a liitle bit...

Sorry for my english to describe..please check photo below.
The red parts should be matched, however they doesn't, different angles..


(Please note, this photo is not from GC , it's something else car, just for reference what I am talking about)

Update:


(actual pic from GC)

and we called BC Taiwan, they said it was really really weired..and we sent mobile pic to them.

If it's truth...probably all of other brands' coilovers are not able to install to 2011 GC at the moment.

Long shot but can anyone confirm if the Rohens Coupe is different from the Genesis Coupe for the 2011 model year? I'm certain we've had 2011s with BC Coilovers.

Sorry to hear shruru. Please rehost the pics, we cannot see them. Thank you!

Not sure I understand. What does the new sway bar have to do with a strut not fitting? And unless the clip bracket is on the other side how is it affecting the fit?

Not sure i understand either. They look exactly the same, if the coil pictured above is the drivers side. Meaning the sway bar mount is toward the front of the car.

Unless the enlink on the 11 is slightly shorter or taller meaning it wouldnt line up with the mount on the strut?? thats the only problem i could see?
