The BMW E46 is one of the most popular BMW chassis of all time thanks to its beautiful modern styling, and blend of curves and aggressive lines. Now that the E46 has been in the market for several years, they are a great option for grassroots motorsport enthusiasts. With a bulletproof inline 6 engine as its heart and a near perfect weight balance, the E46 is easily one of the most popular track day toys.
Despite everything that makes the E46 such a great platform for racing, one area that can be greatly improved is the strength of the rear chassis where the suspension attaches to the body of the car. The pockets where the rear trailing arms mount to the car is one area that is prone to stress fractures. For any E46 that sees track time, these reinforcements are key! Drift and grip cars can all benefit from the added rigidity of the chassis with these plates installed, not to mention the peace of mind you will have by knowing that you have a solid chassis that will not tear up after a hard day at the track. These thick plates can be welded into place to prevent cracking or tears in the chassis where the rear trailing arms mount to the car.
