Im surprised to see people having the same problem, I had to replace one axle shaft, diff housing and the rear muffler.
Wow, we should honestly make a class action suite against BMW. These bolts should not fail, I never heard of another car doing this minus e36 m3s. I've heard of many ppl breaking axles on other cars never diff bolts. A $500 axle vs $10,000 diff cause of bolts is just mind boggling.
I'm out warranty and it is a concern.
