If yes, could one fix for sedan/coupe guys be using the brace from a vert?
What I was under the imression of was that, the early models until 2002.5-2003 were notorious for the weak subframe. Granted the subframe is weak no matter what year, the early models were the worst. If I were you, I would do the TMS kit (or similar) and have a brace made in the trunk. it'll be a little pricey, but its way more cheap than paying over 4k to REPAIR and REINFORCE, than reinforce alone. Or just drive like a grandma, but for me, I bought an M3 to drive it like an M3, not just to look good.
