I tough subframe issue was at all times.. Even worse on sharp turns?

But check it ( your year built is the most known subframe issue.

Which i still can't figure out why BMW Stop the warranty recall 2005/2006.

I believe recall should count based on vin lifetime recall on each individual vin # : so hopefully your issue was addressed.

Yours seems like wheel bearing/diff fluid.. You can lubricate the wheel bearing or get new ones... Also change your fluid on differential ,let's not forget it's solid BMW 12 years old car

Rtab- rear trailing arm bushings, 55$ pair/ most expensive will be labor because tool required is costly and you can Make your own shown on some DIY , search!

Bad one- loose turn, loose feeling on the rear, windy days:even worse!

A kit for rear/ all bushings 600$/
