i dont have any pictures yet....the top of the left rear strut punched completely through the wheel well.....i havent hit any extreme potholes either....and the wheel well isnt rusted.
are there any actions I can take besides trying to pay out of my own pocket for BMW's engineering mistake? They are going to attempt to rebuild my wheel well and i need new shocks....so this is definately going to be a costly process.
Didn't this happen to Delmarco? If not him I know its happened to some one else on this forum in the last year or so.
There's not much that you can except pay out for it. You might want to reinforce both sides while you have people in there welding and you might even want to invest in rear strut mounts of the convertable/E46/Rogue Engineering variety.
yeah your gonna need to reinforce the tower now, it can be costly depending on how extensive the damage but its an opporitunity for you to reinforce the intire back end, with some upgraded RSM's and reinforcement plates.
