    Awesome reinforcement job! I went with the TMS kit for my car as well.

    Are there any differences between the subframe mounting area on the regular M3 and the CSL? They look identical from memory and since the M3s are prone to failure, I guess I'm not too surprised to see cracks on the CSL, too. :/

    So no difference in sheet metal thickness either? I ask because even the non-Ms have the same mounting points as the M3, but compared to the 325/330, the 323/328 are known to be more prone to cracking.

    No big deal, stuff happens.

    Moved to the chassis section as this has far more to do with the chassis Click here to enlarge If the guy goes ahead with the motor work please create a separate thread for that!
