Rear subframe reinforcement
It is of no mystery that the E46 chassis is known for having a subframe prone to mounting surface failures. The subframe can literally be ripped out with stock power alone if driven hard enough.
This car didn't show any signs of cracking or failure but out of good measure we decided to reinforce anyway. We also already had the rear end torn apart so naturally it was a good time to fix this.
A few pictures below of the process including upgraded subframe bushings. If you want to see more of this, check out the complete gallery below!
