It's known as the boomerang (although not by BMW, so don't ask for one at the parts desk, you'll probably get told to come back in an hour)

There are reinforcement kits for them, but is looks like a cast alloy to me, and the kits look like weld on plates.

when you say special cast rods does that mean i will need an arc welder to weld them on or are you talking about the reinforcement bars

cool im gonna have to get something made so this doesnt happen agaon i may go see a prescision metal place see if they can make 2 braces for the cast plate out of steel and put longer bolts in and then weld the 2 sides together i have seen the brackets on driftworks but they sell them at 286 dollars so easier to make a reinforcement i think

if you use a 1.6 rod on low amps you should get a good weld but I wouldnt recomend a diy job of it as you may get lack of fusion and it will make it 10x worse if you know someone with a tig welder that would be alot better as the amps are more controlable for welding on cast.
