i have a U.K. 1999 e46 320d with 160kmiles. engine and body is still sweet.
But my car vibrates like hell on acceleration.
in the last 3 thousand miles has become apprarant.
my mechanic discovered a 1"inch crack in the metal of the boot foor just next to where the Diferential is mounted
My mechanic said he's heard of this problem on early e46 models. because the metal was not strong enough to deal with the Torque, and later models have a thicker boot floor apparently.
Does anyone know anything about this? was there a recall?
does anyone work for BMW in UK?
what is the warrenty on the Bodyshell?
i think its horrendous that the car's Chassis component should fail in under 8years.
Especially a BMW.
Any ideas on how i can get BMW to fix it for me for free?
Coz the car is pretty standard & it aint had an accident.
i REALLY need your help guys, coz otherwise this repair bill is gonna be crazy.
THANKS in advance.
