BMW Subframe Reinforcement Kit (E36) - Genuine BMW E36MSub

Prevent costly subframe damage

These are the Genuine BMW subframe reinforcement plates designed for use on the E36 M3.

These were designed by BMW to reinforce the sheet metal where the chassis mounts to the rear subframe, a common weak point of the E36 chassis. This will aid in the prevention of a costly tear of the rear chassis.

These tears are caused by the fatigue of the chassis' sheet metal at the subframe mounting points. this fatigue is the result of shear forces exerted on the sheet metal by slight rotation of the subframe (moment force) caused by drivetrain torque. The subframe is allowed to rotate a bit to dampen shock on the differential and drivetrain, but this movement is increased in degrees of rotation and force with the application of more power, hard driving, or worn out differential and subframe bushings.

This reinforcement kit is a must if you use your E36 for the track or autocross, and is highly recommended for those who enjoy even the occasional "spirited" drive. Neglecting the installation of this kit can result in very costly subframe repairs in the future.

Professional installation or welding expertise required. Removal of rear subframe and differential required.

Note: Welding is required, professional installation is recommended.
