i was inspectin my subframe today and when i looked next to the drivers side subframe, i saw a fricken hole. then i looked at it and it was in the perfect shape of a circle so i figured it was a drain hole or something. do any of u have this also?
You're probably fine.Nosferatu said:I took a look at my '00 328Ci w/ ~42k miles. I don't know anything about cars, but I crawled under the car and took a look under the inside of the drivers side rear wheel didn't see any cracks. I looked in the same spot as in the picture that was posted.

I have 37k miles on the car so I dont know if its too early or late for anything to happen? I have driven the car hard lately and everything seemed fine. Someone interpret these pictures to give me some peace of mine please... (sorry about the big pics)
this might be a dumb question, but in the picture is that the front or the back? thank samsycE46 said:Here's a picture of where to look. On the inside of the driver's side rear wheel.
if it's cracking, you'lll see cracks around the red arrow. The circle holes are normal. you can see it in this pic, but it's covered with a plug.
