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 -
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)
THIS IS PART 1.
Keep checking back for the next video which will show the car stripped

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
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 -
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

This video is a compilation of the best BMW M5 E60 V10 Exhaust sounds I have filmed in the last few
years. In this video you can hear the start up sound from the V10 engine,
some very loud revs, burnouts, drifts and mindblowing accelerations! Just
listen to the V10 engine sound, it's amazing! Maybe the best V10 ever made?

BMW E46 M3 rear floor subframe crack repair - part 3 of 3
Part 3 of 3:
BMW E46 M3 with 2 cracks in the rear floor where the subframe bolts up to.
We show how to access the damaged area's by removing the complete rear axle
and fuel tank system, then weld repairing the cracks, then welding the
reinforcement plates to strengthen the area and spread the load of the bush
into a greater area. Protecting the floors and installing Powerflex
polyurethane bushes completes the underside work.
Then we show how to access the 3 rosette welds inside the boot/trunk floor
cavity, and how to weld reinforce them.
