It's the early e46's, they were strengthened around the year 2000, the M3s should have added plates already to beef the area up,

I've seen 2 myself that have gone, both 4 doors, one was a W reg(2000) 328i, the other a 318i also on a W.

Thought they would've learnt from the e36 subframe issue (which I'm in the process of doing), any word on the newer 3 series as my bro in law just got an 07 one.

i would demand the re-enforcement plates and i would want photos taken during work so they could show me how well they did it

print the attatchment file at the start of this topic, as its evidence its a recall issue, well not a recall as such, but if it does go wrong then they'll repair, it otherwise they wont be interested unless its actually occured, they should fix it for free if your lucky

Will do, cheers. Might have a gander along tomorrow and chat up the dealer.
Need to do a few things to this car along the way, so this'll be a starting point.

spent 19 hours the other weekend cutting the floor out of mine, and welding 3mm thick, 1 inch square box section (x2) onto the top of both sides, and welding a 5mm plate to the back of the n/s/r mount, capping it with 3mm over the hole! only found out after it was warranty! but at least i know its done right! expanding foam my arse!
