Stage 2 - E46 Front Weld In RACP Beam
Fits: All E46 coupe chassis (Non-M & M3) and sedans with split folding seats
-Introduces a new frame rail between the existing tying into the subframe mounts
-Provides a direct load path from the front two subframe mounts to the chassis rails
-Increases the vertical cross section and rigidity of the Rear Axle Carrier Panel (RACP)
-Prevents failure beneath the rear seats and surrounding areas
-Fits beneath the factory seats & boot trim for a hidden installation
Note: Underside reinforcement plates are still required to comprehensively reinforce the chassis.
-The final Stage 3 - E46 Front Bolt In RACP Brace is available for those wanting to maximise chassis rigidity and further strengthen the front two, rear subframe mounts.
-2mm 250MPa yield zinc coated mild steel (zincanneal)
This is our next generation of E46 topside subframe mount/RACP reinforcement kits designed for those with split folding rear seats.
This is the final stage necessary to comprehensively reinforce all four rear subframe mounts from above in your E46 chassis to achieve permanent peace of mind. Best of all, it's almost completely hidden and fits without sacrificing the rear seats!
This kit is a precision engineered, weld-in reinforcement for the topside of the front two, rear subframe mounts designed to provide a more direct transfer of stress from the subframe mounts to the chassis rails while increasing the vertical cross section and thus structural rigidity across the entire width of the Rear Axle Carrier Panel (RACP).
