Arrow e46 Subframe repair

Hey guys here's a link to my repair that a good friend did. The process of taken off everything was quick. I had the whole exhaust, driveshaft, and rear end off in about 2hrs... But the whole process took well over 12 hrs to complete... Car is a whole new car... I was amazed how bad it really was... Only one mount was bad the rest were fine showing no signs of degress... I will go back in and epoxy plates to the other mounts in the spring... Any questions and comments are welcome....

You do know that if you'd returned car to stock suspension and brought to a dealer, they would have done this $5-6,000 for free under the terms of the class action settlement, right?

Just curious if you'd missed this, or, if you're planning on submitting a claim for reimbursement, which you're entitled to 'probably.'

Anyway, glad you're all together...and will read your blog with interest sometime later.
