i would do some re-search before making the dive into this... I have done a decent ammount of research on this and have chose all of these exzact products EXCEPT the RTAB's. after alot of reading i got the OEM UPDATED RTAB's, ive herd of people having issues with the Powerflex RTAB (although i have never tried them myself)

GREAT DEAL though if i didnt already have all this stuff i would jump on it and sell the RTAB's

e46bmwlife 10-31-2012 05:43 PM

I wanted to make sure I'm reading this right because I need to get my subframe repaired.

$800 for labor plus the cost of the kit $155 will get my subframe fixed if I take it to the shop?

If so that is excellent!

Powerflex RTABs are excellent, 6 years 100k miles on mine. Updated OEM still flex too much and will fail.

Sub-Frame "Repair" and Sub-Frame "Reinforcement" can be two different things. We have seen people drive in to get it looked at and we couldn't believe they were able to drive the car. Repair is completely dependent on how bad the tearing is... If no tearing than its a relatively easy job for our techs.

I do have some tearing, but I don't think its that bad. The damage can be seen via the following link:

Damage is not bad yet... They get worse and worse. The problem is you get use to a clunk and then it gets slightly worse over time and you don't notice it until its to late. I had a guy tell me he's had this "light" clunk in his rear end for over a year. We get it up on the lift and there was 4 inch tear on each side of his 330... :hmm::hmm:

Right now I'm driving it, but sparingly. Mostly just to the grocery store or to take the wife to work a few blocks away. We're hoping to get a second car sometime over the next few weeks so I don't have to continue driving this one.

Should just stop driving...Making it worst every time you drive it...

I wish I paid only 800 bux in labor less 20% for my subframe job. I had additional work done but the price tag was through the roof. This is an awesome deal. Do it if you live near by.

I know. I trying, but its a little difficult.

When I first discovered the problem I wanted to try and get the subframe fixed right away, but with a rough idle not being able to find a shop in Florida willing to fix it at a reasonable price, I've given up, at least for now.

We have some stocks in a mutual fund that add up to a few thousand. The plan is to cash them out and purchase a daily driver so I don't have to drive the e46 until it can get fixed. But with the storm in NYC the stock market has been closed for a few days, which has delayed things.

I agree it is a great price. I'm very far from OR, but I'm defiantly considering using this shop to repair my subframe when the time is right.

I can give you the name of the body shop that did the welding on mine in Pompano beach. They knew exactly what to do. Maybe you can negotiate a much better price. I did have them do a lot of additional bracing that you would not need. PM me if you want. It will cost you 1500 or more to round trip your car to HPF. That would be worth it if you were getting more work than just the subframe.
If you had a turbo M3 and wanted to do their whole group buy package then by all means ship your car to them from any where in the States. I think you can not loose with their deal.

I agree. Their deal is excellent, but my problem would be getting the car to them and back at a reasonable price.

I'm going to send a PM now. It wouldn't hurt to get the info on the Pompano Beach shop.

Price for everything except control arms shipped to 26501?
