Got the car back yesterday.
Turns out the subframe wasn't too bad at all. There was one or two suspect hair line possible cracks around the diff bracket. No spot welds had gone.
I had the strenghtening kit installed all the same. Thought it was best to prevent it happenening in the future.
The reason for the squeaks where put down to the hard poly bushes and the top mounts. I had the Rogue engineering top mounts installed and new BMW rubber bushes fitted all over including the diff bush.
The squeaks have all gone and the car feels far better with the softer bushes. The rock hard bushes where a nightmare.

Next thing to do will be to have the oil leak sorted and a few other little issues. Then off to the body shop for a respray. Should be finished before the spring with a bit of luck.

Ok, quick update on what I've done to the car so far.

Full service.

Welded in a reinforcment kit from Randy Forbes.

Replaced all the rear bushes including the diff bush from rock hard poly ones, back to BMW rubber ones.

Replaced the rear top mounts for Rouge engineering ones.

Replaced the Remus exhaust back to a stock exhaust.

Fixed the heated rear screen and rear wiper by cleaning up the wiring loom and replacing the broken motor with one from an e36 compact.

Changed the clutch hose for a s/s one.

Replaced the AC Schnitzer short shifter to a new standard shifter and gear stick.

Replaced the gearbox oil.

Replaced the rocker cover with a restored one.


Next up;
Full respray and wheel refurb. With all new trim and windscreen. Booked in this month.

Sort out the slipping clutch.

Then hopefully after all that, I'll have a sorted car.

I have the car booked into the BMW club National show in August. Hoping to go over on the ferry with my Dad. Bringing the 2002tii as well if its ready.
