One issue with the 'new' MMC solution is that one of the lower mounts sits below the level of the undertray, around midway along the wheelbase. This can cause problems with ground clearance when traversing speed bumps. crazy2

Blackbushe sounds perfect Skullmog; close enough to dash for home if someone spots a rain cloud mid Atlantic 😉

Thanks for the info Andy, as our local council have turned our village centre into a tank trap (obviously fearing an invasion of some sort) any reduction in ground clearance would see me restricted to my drive.

IMHO, in reality exhaust cracks are not the major issue.
Grab another box of popcorn and read "Chassis Cracks - lower front Wishbone" and "Cracked & Bent Chassis" on this great Forum.

Be Safe good Sir.....

Hello OZ 4/4, thanks for the link, i’m trying to work out what improvements my M3W has and doesn’t have. It’s 11/50 on the Brooklands spectrum which is quite an early number but it was first registered in 2015 which is very late. I can see I don’t have the gussets welded in on the lower wishbone joint which I thought happened in 2014? When I’m home at the weekend I’ll do a frame inspection to determine what stage of mods (if any) it was subjected to during build.

It looks like we might be meeting you at Blackbushe this weekend, we can go through all the chassis and various upgrades with you.

2014 onwards cars have the improved chassis, with the welded in brace behind the engine. The lower wishbone mount cracks have only appeared on earlier cars, mine was one of them as far as I know these haven't been seen on post 2014 cars as the tube wall thickness was increased on the vertical tube where the wishbone mount is welded.
