Advice Needed about Vorshlag Camber Plates

Hi fellas,

I have finally received my new Vorshlag 1M camber plates but unfortunately noticed an imperfection on one of them which may or not be due to a damage occured while in transport, or it is a simple production defect. Impossible to tell for me. Please guys who already installed these before and have first hand experience with camber plates, can you tell me if you would go ahead and install them in your car? It is bumpy like a tiny bulb on the disc and at the edge when you touch it. Photos:

I would say that it borders on the purely cosmetic, no? It's up to you but I wouldn't worry about that one bit!

I'd drop them an email ... I've had pretty good experience with their customer service. My gut instinct says no biggie and to install them ...

That is only a cosmetic blemish and has no affect on funtionality. That part is the upper spring perch that gets covered with the stock rubber isolator.

I have these paired with KWv3 and love the adjustability. I'm kinda late the party, but you're perfectly fine.
