Hard cornering is nothing hard for an E46. Many are tracked regularly on R-comps, at higher speeds. I've bent a rim from hard curb hits at the track, but even that didn't bend the arm.
Anyhow, I'm not saying it didn't happen there, but it is pretty hard to do. I haven't heard of any bent arms that weren't a result of hitting a curb or something.
How did you know it happened right at that corner? Did you feel it right away?
