199) 1999 323i (Sport Suspension) Rear Differential Mount Failing. Car in the shop now. Apparently no damage to sub frame. 129,000 miles in year 10. I am the original owner! I love the way this car drives but repairs like this make this an expensive ride. Changing out the liguid-filled rear trailing arm bushings at the same time. So, I will get a four-wheel alignment as an unexpected bonus with this "oil change."

199) 1999 323i (Sport Suspension) Rear Differential Mount Failing. Car in the shop now. Apparently no damage to sub frame. 129,000 miles in year 10. I am the original owner! I love the way this car drives but repairs like this make this an expensive ride. Changing out the liguid-filled rear trailing arm bushings at the same time. So, I will get a four-wheel alignment as an unexpected bonus with this "oil change."

Rear subframe torn away from chassis

I have two more examples of the engineering defect that causes the rear subframe to separate from the body of BMW E46 3 series models.

1. 1999 323i manual transmission miles unknown
2. 2000 323i manual transmission 190k miles

On both vehicles the subframe tore away from the body at the left rear mount.

So, I will get a four-wheel alignment as an unexpected bonus with this "oil change."

Since the forum has 250,000 members and 303 reports of subframe failures, rate of failure 0.121%? 90+% which are 1999/2000 model non-M?

My Ride: ///M3 & 330i ZHP
iirc, BMW has already had a recall on this very issue a few years back. I had my 323i rear subframe repaired (under warranty) because of a class action lawsuit concerning rear subframe tears. My current daily driver (a 2003 ZHP) already had its rear subframe reinforced (no tears) as preventive maintenance from the previous owner.

There was no recall. There was a settlement.

There is a decided difference. A recall is forever, while the settlement added a deadline (which has already since expired).

All repairs made from here on out will have to be under a CPO warranty (unlikely a 2005 or older E46 will still have this) or a goodwill repair by BMWNA or each individual dealership management.

That's why I steered very clear of 99-2001 cars, and all E46 coupes before I bought my current car.

My Ride: 2000 318i
Sorry to hear about another E46 victim.

After my accident, my insurance co assessed the damage. Apart from stating that they will not cover any damage, they have written my 2000 318i off.

I have it sitting in my garage and I am about to strip out the diff etc and have a friend weld/repair it.

Can anyone recommend the best repair/reinforcement kit to use?
