You said you took your car to BMW where they found the cracks? If so ask him (the BMW Dealer) if he is willing to sign a piece of paper that states that in his "X" amount of years of experience as a BMW Dealer/Mechanic, it would be impossible for these cracks to appear within the km's travelled. And that he has dealt and has vast experience with subframe issues before.
Yeah the dealer said it was a visual inspection and his mechanic is qualified however I don't believe that. My mechanic isn't an actual dealer he is the owner of BEMW (BE-M-W) in castle hill so I could ask him if he could write something about it I'm sure he would be happy to. Maybe I should take it to a BMW dealer for them to inspect this and give me their opinion as well?
