Should these bolts break, def not, but apparently not that many of them have had issues to warrant a recall. Keep in mind the subframe issue is to all e46 cars, not just m3. While you read of probs on this forum this represnets a very small scale of ownership population
It was not a direct comparison; the analogy is in the following proposed commonality: BMW for years denied a known problem experienced by multiple customers and falsely denied warranty claims on basis of abuse and accident damage.
The takeaway is that BMW is known to deny claims for known warranty issues. Some people want to come in the thread and say "BMW is right, why would they say it was accident damage, if it wasn't?" Well, look at the past.
