BMW Performance Suspension Swaybar Knocking

I just got BMW performance suspension installed and the front sway bar is knocking on the cross member. I think the shop has installed it wrong but they think it can only go in one way and are blaming the bar. I've seen some threads about people installing the M3 bar upside down, can the same thing be done with this one?
Have some very crappy pics (haven't had a chance to get under and have a proper look)

Sorry can't help you out mate

When i had a knocking issue it was due to the bolts being loose.

which shop did you get this done at btw?

That's not put in right. Looks like it's upside down & left/right sides need swapping. Should fit over the steering arm not underneath it.

Thanks, that's what I thought I just wanted confirmation. I'm going back this arvo to get them to flip it.

Thanks people, issue resolved. Took them 20 minutes to take it off and put it on the right way.
