Careful.. disregard such as that is exactly how things started with the E46 subframe. Of course; not EVERY E46 M3 had this problem. But it became widespread enough that it was eventually a recall. It has occurred to me that we have been dodging around this issue, but there have been a notable number of bolt failures here on this forum. Clarification: I do not think we are seeing something on THAT scale. It won't be a recall.. but still.

There have been a few DCTers with this, but it was blamed on a bad exhaust installation (apparently some shops were taking off the diff bolt and reinstalling it incorrectly).
