I wonder if the crack has shifted any additional parts fron their original locations... and welding can only buy you time!

hmmm defiantly not good for the home team there. iono how much room you have, i guess you could get enough by dropping the rear diff and the exhaust, but it might be tough to weld it in the car. you would of course be able to clean it up real well and then weld it. it might be tough to get the pieces to align back together just right. iono how experienced you are with a TIG welding but that is defiantly the way to go. but wire feed ,MIG, would be fine too since thats how BMW did it.
looks to me like a bad weld job on BMW's part. if a wled is done right the metal wround it will break before the weld will.
