I had Chicane do rear subframe reinforcement on my E46 M3. I typically enjoy DIY maintenance/repairs/upgrades, but this job was more than I wanted to take on. Yesterday I had the car on my lift and am very happy with how it turned out: super clean and basically looks like it came from the factory reinforced this way. The drive feels better after the bushing refresh that was done while the subframe was out as well. The job took a couple days longer to complete than estimated, but Brad and Chris were engaged throughout the process and provided great progress/timeline updates. Brad even noticed I could upgrade the camber arms rather than spending labor to reuse the existing stock arms, which was very nice surprise. Overall just a great experience. I plan to come back to Chicane to replace rod bearings later this year (another job I’d prefer to not DIY). Bottom line: if you are within a couple hundred miles of KC I can’t think of a better place to take your M3, regardless the vintage.
Thanks Matt, we are thrilled to hear that you had a great experience. The subframe reinforcements are one of the jobs that really put Chicane on the map and we really take the utmost pride in them. When we advertise "factory fresh" we mean it. Now get out there and enjoy that M3 or yours.
