Hey guys i'm scared my subframe is gone *looks at sig* I thought it'd be useful to post up what dealers you've used to check your subframe & what mods you had on (if any) so people can figure out what dealers are more mod 'friendly' and what aren't.


Car:
Dealer:
Mods: (if any)
Comments:





I think this will greatly help other California Fanatics in figuring out which dealers they can go with.

Thanks,

Dealer: Concord BMW, Norcal
Mods: (if any): Exhaust and headers, nothing to the suspension
Comments: They didnt mention anything, but the service guys must have known something was up when they drove it :4ngie: Everything checked out fine though :)

Haha wow! I gave up on BMW of Riverside because I will be moving in the next couple weeks. I did, however, get in touch with Steve Thomas BMW in Camarillo(where I am moving) and they told me its pretty likely they will be giving me a loaner. They seem pretty great so far and told me I have nothing to worry about, all over the phone. I'm due next week to see how it goes.
