Question Answered:

Question Answered: 

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.

There is a resistor that controls the blower speed. It is a commonly replaced item on many vehicles. It is located behind the glovebox attached to the blower motor. A good shop that handles many Euros should be able to take care of that for you. Good Luck, Euro-Asian Motorcars, Inc. Edison, NJ
