The E36 and E46 BMWs have problems with not only the subframe bushings, but the entire rear suspension can separate from the subframe. This is very common on M3s that tend to get launched very hard off the line and/or downshifted from speed. The repair is available in a kit that is welded into the subframe. The rear suspension is then reconnected to the new mounting position.

bad subframe bushings can cause shimmy, bump steering and vibration.
