Collected my Born last week and surprise surprise, the dealership left the transport blocks in... However, this time they took them out on one side but not the other.

How do dealerships manage to mess this up so often?

I had that on my Golf R in 2015 - 3 "pac man" blocks in on each strut to stop the front end bouncing around on the ship, and they left a set in each side (claiming that it used to be 2 per side, and a third had been added without informing the dealerships) - were all yours in on 1 side?

I'd be asking them to take a look at the top mount bearings - they'll be smashed to hell if you've ran with it more than a few hours driving.

They claimed that the last of the three didn't fall to the bottom or something and that's why they were missed. (Not sure if there was one on only one side or both).

They said they took the suspension off to check and there was no damage, not sure how much I believe them, but I guess the problem is recorded now as their fault so I'll make sure to call them out if there's any suspension issues later down the line.

The dealer's definitely talking rubbish there - they're held reasonably tightly there - they'll be stuck up the top of the shock absorber shaft rather than sliding down when not being pushed up by compression of the shock absorber.
