Cracked E60 M5 Rear Subframe

Posted 15th September 2012 at 05:04 by M5 VX
Hi All,
just discovered i have a rear subframe that is cracked. Has anyone ever had this problem. does not seem to be much on this. Spoke to a mechanic and basically we got to remove the diff, exhaust, heat shield , tailshaft and then he can weld the parts together whilst reinforsing the other mount that is sure to break. BMW told me that it has never happended to them before. Feedback would be appreciated. ThanksClick image for larger version
