That's exactly what i was thinking, I was getting ready to install. Thinking i might wait a bit till after the inspection. Good news though!!
I was thinking the same thing. Better wait for those KW's. :) Hmm, wonder if I should take off my Hartge's and go back to my 17"?

yea they are saying that if you already paid for the repair, you can still file a claim and get your some or all of your money back.
I got my letter yesterday and it's basically saying that I can get reimbursed for any repair that has already been done to my subframe (obviously there is limit and stuff). But I am thinking that since my shop (RRT in NoVa) already told me that I needed a subframe repair and their quote to fix it (basically take it off and weld it back in) is pretty low (around $1,500), I am thinking that I'll just go ahead and do it and make sure that I get a separate receipt for the subframe repair and hopefully I can get them to note that the car was stock before the subframe had been repaired. I am not sure how many on this board have had this done and are planning to get reimbursement from BMW.

If I get my letter I'll put it off for maybe 9 months or so. I don't want to have it inspected now, then have it weaken over the next year and can't reinspect it. I know I risk have a problem but I'd rather give it time to show up over the next year.

Yeah I got my letter today. I didn't understand whether I had to fill out the Claims Statement or not? It's got six sections labeled A-F. So do I have to fill out this form in order to be included in the settlement?

thanks

So if we get our car inspected, then put aftermarket suspension on, can we get away with it?

My aftermarket suspension will be here Monday. I have my stock wheels on right now. I guess I should hold off on installing the suspension and get the subframe checked out at the dealership first :dunno:
