I was just wondering how do you tell if you got subframe damage??? I searched around different forums but cant tell from their pics what they look like when it happens. Is there any easy steps to see if i got this problem i got a 2000 3 series coupe. Links or Pictures would be really helpful.


Thanks For the Help

I don't think the 2000 model is effected.. :confused: I think Bmw started reinforcing subframes after 97 ... but I'll let some of the pro's on this board answer to that!*th-up*

easist way is just too physically look at the subframe, if its starting to come apart you will see. i guess its hard to explain but just next time ur car is at the stop and is lifted, just look at the subframe.

Early e46 cars had the same problem (1999-2000). BMW doesn't learn from their mistakes.

Only the 97+ m3's were re-enforced.

e46's are affected too. :(
