Are you prepared for an expense when time comes to remove the backing plates? if they do it correctly, you'll need to remove the bearing to remove the backing plate. or they may cut and tack weld one back on. As mentioned a simple fix for this are a couple bolts and nuts and you're back in biz.

I think I've had 18 bmw's in 6 years.
