As most of you know, re-inforcing the E36/E46 chassis is one of the "preventive" services we should do if:

1. Your putting a lot of power into the vehicle
2. You track/auto-x/club race your car
3. You don't want to have your subframe resting on the floor after some hard driving!

The reinforcement plates are offered from many companies, such as Turner Motorsport, HPF etc. We have decided also to offer this product along with the installation service - at a very competitive rate. Currently the plates we offer are 1mm thick.

Here are some pics I snapped during the install of the Turner plates

First the underneath:

Along with the kit, plates for the lower contol arm/lower wishbone are provided as well:

Now here is our plates welded into an E46 coupe (non-M) before we drop the S54 in....as you can see it is the very same thing, except thicker (and local!)

So guys if you guys are interested in getting this done, give us a call. Hey, like I said in the other post...if there is enough interest among you E46 (M and non M) and also E36 (minus the inner trunk plate) guys I can definitely arrange something.

do you have these plates in stock?

As Mike said we do have them in stock, and always will as each plates are made to order in house.

The majority of people doing this work want to swap out bushings etc etc while some don't so to save time and complication give me a call for the quickest answer to your specific work request.

you would definitely be getting a better deal if you decide to install it at Bimmersport.
