XI subframe failure?

Have you experienced a subframe failure in yer XI?

I don't have any symptoms of a failure at 104k miles. I've heard XI's are less susceptible to failure b/c we have less torque going to the rear wheels than regular 330's and 325's.

The reason I ask, is b/c I just put an aftermarket suspension on, I don't have any symptoms of failure, and I'm wondering if it's is worth putting the stock suspension back on to get the subframe inspected as part of the class action settlment.
