    How does something like that happen to a car? How many miles did he have 600+whp to do damage like that... It looks like the car is about to be pulled in half from the power.

    This seriously saddens me to see this. Your case is not the first time I've seen an already subframe reinforced E46 M3 get further and more severe tears!

    Mike@VAC definitely keep us posted on how you plan on fixing all of this! Best of luck!

    This is also prevalent on E46 325's, 328's and 330i's *coupes and sedans*. Some years are worse than others, but not uncommon at all.

    I don't even know what to say, damn that looks bad.

    That kit is priced really well, not sure why anyone wouldn't do it.

    What power level will that be good to?

    Does one still need to baby their car off the line with this? Can you get this kit and launch the crap out of your E46 at the strip?

    So since this is chassis and suspension based I'm going to move to 3 Series -> E46 unless there are any objections.

    What else are they going to add other than their kit?

    How much can that kit handle anyway?
