Yes, later years of subframes in E46's were reinforced, and verts have reinforced subframes so that is not usually an issue for verts, although it's not impossible for verts to have the issue.

Of course check the top movement and the bat wings (see the post about repairing those). I can't think of vert only problems other than that. As with all E46s, make sure you know the age of the expansion tank as at those miles, hopefully it's been replaced... it's the part most likely to go on these cars. Much of the other stuff is posted when buying one... PPI, etc. GL.
