Thank you for this thread and the other one about the subframe.

This will be used against all stuck-up e36 owners; your cars are tearing to pieces, all on their own. Good job.

Its just the 92's.

They are weak subframes overall anyway though.. and it can happen to any of the e36's, including the M3, which has reinforced subframes stock.
