BMW M ROADSTER Power Train problems : 1.
I Did A Quick Search Of The Nhtsa Database And Have Found Approx. 60 Complaints About This Exact Safety Issue. I’m Quite Surprised That The Nhtsa Has Not Sanctioned bmw About This Problem. After Being Informed That This Is A Common Safety Problem With These Cars And Being Advised To Check For It, I Found That The Spot Welds Holding The Differential Mount To The Sub-frame Had Torn Loose, And The Sub-frame And Mount Were Both Beginning To Tear. Had I Not Found The Problem In Time, The Differential Would Have Separated Completely From The Car (as Has Happened To Others).
Mileage was 90000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WBSCK9333WL. BMW M ROADSTER 1998 problem was reported in SAN JOSE, CA. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.
