BMW E46 M3 heavily cracked subframe - floor split - total failure - Part 1
This 2002 BMW E46 M3 Convertible has come into Redish Motorsport for our E46 M3 Subframe floor crack repair & reinforcement process - http://www.redish-motorsport.com/E46M3FloorSubframeCrackRepairReinforcement .html But it has cracked and split the Rear Axle Carrier Panel so much that a reinforcement is not an option. This E46 M3 will need a new Rear Axle Carrier Panel (some people call this the Subframe or Boot Trunk Floor). Also the internal boot floor panel is damaged and will either need replacing or remodelling and reinforcing using a stronger (but non OEM) option. THIS IS PART 1. Keep checking back for the next video which will show the car stripped down. For more info, ask a question below or contact Redish Motorsport via google.

Roger's BMW E46 M3 Underside Restoration
We've videod one of our infamous 'Underside Restorations' to show some of the key stages in this 50+ labour-hour project. Roger's E46 M3 had the common cracks and spot welds popped on his E46 M3 Subframe Panel. Roger had also just won 2nd place in the M3cutters' Xmas prize raffle and opted to spend his 2nd place price with Redish Motorsport. The E46 M3 obviously required our Redish Motorsport E46 Rear Subframe Repair & Reinforcement Process as a bare minimum - http://redish-motorsport.com/E46M3FloorSubframeCrackRepairReinforcement.htm l Then, after Roger made the 160 mile round trip from South Wales to go over plans and meet James, Luke, and Pete at Redish Motorsport, he was 'blown away' (his words not ours) with the Underside Restoration work we have carried out in the past. After seeing our working procedure, workshop, the team, and past projects, Roger was hooked and he upgraded to the Redish Motorsport Underside Restoration. Just a brief list of items replaced or refurbished during the process: Redish Motorsport E46 Rear Subframe Reinforcement Plate Kit Full underbody degrease with POR-15 Marine Clean & APC Addressing of surface corrosion areas High build etch priming of floor areas Wurth sprayable seam sealer of floor areas Underbody & arches painted in Pheonix Yellow (445) body colour paint Metal brake pipe repairs Fuel tank & lines & pipes degreased and silicon protected Fuel tank straps powdercoated Diff carrier & ARB & RTAB cradles powdercoated in Matt Black Trailing arms & upper spring arms powdercoated in Chrome Silver Eibach lower camber arms V-brace powdercoated in Chrome Silver Various other small brackets powdercoated in either Matt Black or Chrome Silver OEM rear silencer & centre pipe hand/machine polished then hand waxed Plastics degreased & de-waxed, treated with a silicon sealer Metal heatshields for prop & Exhaust scrubbed & painted VHT silver New rear ARB drop links Bilstein PSS10 (B16) Coilover kit Rogue Engineering Rear Top Mounts Diff rear cover painted in VHT silver Diff body painted in POR-15 Rust Preventative Black Goodridge Braided Brake line kit Drive shafts cleaned & rubbers treated OEM BMW diff/subframe bushes OEM BMW diff front bush Powerflex rear trailing arm bushes OEM BMW anti roll bar bushes OEM BMW trailing arm ball joints x4 OEM BMW upper spring arm inner bushes Wiring for ABS, Pad, Xenon cleaned & protected Fuel supply & return pipes protected/painted with POR-15 Black EVERY SINGLE nut, bolt, washer, clip, screw, fixings & fastener NEW from BMW There probably was more but this is just a quick run down of the spec. If you have any questions or are seriously considering this level of work on your BMW, please get in contact with James and he will be happy to discuss options.
