problem #1

  • 40,000 miles
BMW E46 series cars, (1999-2006), have a weak point on the rear subframe mounting points. Over time, these points tear and cause the subframe to crack and begin to tear the body and frame of the car. My 2004 BMW M3 is experiencing this exact problem at the moment. There is numerous class action lawsuits open on this issue as well.
