199) 1999 323i (Sport Suspension) Rear Differential Mount Failing. Car in the shop now. Apparently no damage to sub frame. 129,000 miles in year 10. I am the original owner! I love the way this car drives but repairs like this make this an expensive ride. Changing out the liguid-filled rear trailing arm bushings at the same time. So, I will get a four-wheel alignment as an unexpected bonus with this "oil change."

From what I recall, BMW-UK was the first to issue the fix with the epoxy foam. Years before BMWNA covered it. I also know of two members from Australia that had the issue.
So I don't see it being only in certain parts. The more powerful 6 cylinder cars seem most affected, not sure I recall hearing a four cylinder car affected.

i never updated this thread with my situation so here goes. 2000 328Ci step with 150k. free inspection revealed subframe cracks. dealer refused to give details. (first good sign ). dealer then refused to fix because the car has a flood title. pointed out to the dealer and then bmw na that bmw found the car fit enough to cpo after the flood title brand, so the car should be good enough to get the subframe fix. bmw told me they researched it and i was wrong -- the car was flooded AFTER it was cpo'd. fine, i told them they still had to repair it because the settlement agreement says nothing about flood/r-title cars. still refused. threatened litigation . . and ta-da, they fixed it. this was fall of 2010. recently i had the chance to run a free autocheck report on my car and it showed that the car had been flood branded in 2001, which i would think means it was cpo'd after the flooding.. but i guess i can't say for sure

My Ride: 2001 330ci manual
I just purchased a 2001 330ci and with the whole cooling system overhaul I'm gonna do to avoid those issues, would this be something that a dealership would still inspect for free today and repair if they discover some subframe cracks? I know this issue is well past its prime at this point so I'm just curious.

My Ride: 03 325ci, 11 Z4 35i
I recently purchased a 2000 323ci manual trans (80 K) for my son. He was noticing a squeeking from LR suspension. Upon detailed inspection it was noted that the LR axle support had poked through the subframe. So its back to Carmax/BMW to see that they repair this. Hopefully, as it was still within the 30 day Carmax warranty.

FYI Carmax carted it over to BMW first. For $4K they would do the standard R&R of the entire differential mounting rear subframe floor. Carmax coughed on that one and I did as well. I recommended to them that they go the Turner MS or Active Autowerke reinforcement plate route. Next Carmax checked with their preferred body shop $2K. I had no faith that this shop could tear out the arse end of the car and get it back together properly. So I recommended to them a BMWCCA local shop, one that we could both trust. San Diego European Performance was the preferred choice - Ben the owner did a great job on patching the hole and installing the reinforcement plates.

End result Carmax came through and paid for the repair. Everyone happy all around. Cost to Carmax $1K.

The cut off was for a free inspection, not the acquisition of your vehicle. It sucks, but we're all on our own now... good thing is it doesn't actually happen too often, it just seems more prominent on here because those with problems obviously come here to report them (that goes for any issues).

So your subframe is torn? That sucks

Inspection or not, I don't have any solid hope that BMW will repair it at this point. I have a 2001 also, depending on when it was made, you might be in the clear (mines was July 2001, almost a 2002 model so I have the new subframe (more on this later), it's largely the 323/328ers that need to worry, It's been a while now, but I'm gonna have to say February of 2001 is when they put the new subframes in, so if your car was made after this, feel better

But still, be careful out there...

Oh by the way, you can inspect it yourself, it's super easy, just follow the four corners all around once you've found the rear driver subframe bushing, it's the easiest to spot, right behind your bumper, search if you need more detail.

I didn't know about this issue and deadline before I found crack of my BMW yesterday in Indy shop.
But, I made appointment for sub frame inspection from my local BMW service center.
I'm not sure, this inspect for free or refuse from them.

What should I dO?
I'm soo sad.
I don't wanna pay anymore waste money to take care of my BMW.
Does any body got free repair service of sub frame crack from BMW service center after pass this class action settlement of dead line?

My Ride: '01 325i
Hello everyone,
I've been keeping my eye on this topic for a long time and decided to write a few sentences here.
I spent a few minutes going over the details of the list above and as far as I see there is only one 325i suffering from this issue (well there might be others suffering from this issue as well but not yet have seen this thread or became a member of this forum)
Can I assume that I'm on the safer side of this issue overall?
My 325i was built in January of 2001 (01/2001). It has over 103k miles on it. I've been looking under the car but haven't seen anything major or attention grabbing.
For those of you that have been dealing with this issue, has anyone had their transmission box moving (back and forth / up and down) while you were shifting (and the clunk noise as well)?
I lifted the car up the other day and I pretty much think that it is because of a bad bushing on the transmission box, but just wanted to double check with you...
Thanks for the help...

My Ride: 99 328i Stock
Somehow missed this thread. Add me:

1999 328i manual, ~195K. 4" crack discovered during inspection in fall 2009, covered under class action suit and repaired by dealer in Dec 2009. Replaced entire floorboard. Would not cover loaner or rental car. My only expense was $300 plus parts to replace subframe and RTAB bushings.
