    Class action suit on rear "subframe" cracking

    Others get a communication regarding this? Sounds like the known issues are finally coming to a head. I don't own the E46 any more. Didn't have issues wven with coilovers, but hear of many that did. Suspension or wheel modifications disqualify you from taking part, BTW.

    here's a linky

    www.E46subframeclassactionsettlement.com

    The May 12th letter said that a proposed settlement is being reviewed by the U.S. District Court, Central District of California.

    Under the proposed settlement, E46 owners have one year from the settlement date (expected to be around September 2, 2009) to have their cars inspected by a BMW dealer and repaired if necessary. BMW NA will pay for previous repairs.

    Under the proposed settlement, Class Counsel, the lawyer who brought the suite will receive $1,100,500 in fees. I'm o.k. with this, actually. I'm sure BMW NA fought them tooth and nail, spending a lot more for their lawyers.

    Let's see...

    leaking self-dimming rear view mirrors

    doors gaskets coming loose if car is parked in direct sunlight for extended periods of time

    shattering plastic interior trim

    trunk latch/license plate light housing

    floor mat backing

    radio station changing when operating cruise control buttons

    inaccurate MPG data on OBC

    That should create another $10M or so in lawyers' fees, huh?

    My wife's Honda was part of a class action lawsuit because the odometer read high. The settlement refunded excess mileage charges on leases and extended the warranty a few thousand miles.
