In 2011 Redish Motorsport pioneered the E46 RACP work (in the UK) into an affordable, reliable, and comprehensive package.

Over the past 12 years we've been continually developing our procedure to maintain our widely regarded position throughout the world.

As well as offering the most up to date information on known weak points whilst using the most modern of corrosion protection materials, owners can rest assured that we've successfully repaired/reinforced over 300x BMW E46's at the time of writing.
We even carry out **Revisit** videos to show how well our work holds up!

We offer our BMW E46 Rear Axle Carrier Panel (aka Subframe) (aka RACP) Repair & Reinforcement Process using our very own Redish Motorsport E46 V3 RACP Reinforcement Plate Kits which we developed in 2012 and are loved around the world.

Each owner can enjoy the security of using a well established and recognised company like Redish Motorsport who guarantee their work and execute each job to this standard you see here in the video below:

We may not be the cheapest, but we are the most thorough!

A larger selection of our videos can be seen on our YouTube channel which show the level of detail we put into every Redish Motorsport E46 RACP Repair & Reinforcement Process.

Then when it comes to the RACP there can be all sorts of problems spread over so many different areas like Underside, Internal Rear, and Internal Front just to name a few of the common locations.

We've found cracks in Seat Panels, ISOfix mounts, Spring Perches, RTAB Pockets, Brake Pipe Brackets - you name it and we've seen it.

For that reason we don't offer pricing without first carrying out an appraisal on the vehicle.
(And even then it can still be quite difficult due to hidden corrosion once the vehicle is fully dismantled and being worked on).

We also don't discuss ball park figures because without seeing the vehicle we don't know exactly what level of work we need to quote for and therefore it would be guess work which would be unfair to both yourself, and us.

I'm sure you can appreciate the challenges involved in remote pricing for work before inspecting the vehicle, therefore, we recommend you have us carry out our RACP Check & Report process to allow us to move forward with assisting you through the RACP Repair & Reinforcement stage of your E46 M3 journey.

You can read more details about that below....

Next step?
If you are interested in having us carry out your RACP work then we first need to inspect your BMW E46 at our Redish Motorsport workshop in Bristol, UK.
We call this a RACP Check & Report.

This is 5 hour initial assessment which provides both us and yourself with the necessary information regarding the damage to the RACP Underside, and Internal (if applicable),

We will also need to carry out a Comprehensive Vehicle Inspection to determine the condition of other key components that we need to remove and install for the repair; like Exhaust, Undertrays, Heatshields, Suspension, Propshaft, Diff, Subframe, Driveshafts, Brakes, Fuel System, Suspension Bushes and Balljoints, as well as check the chassis for any corrosion problems which we may encounter during the repair.

We need to carry out this essential check before hand so we can allocate the correct amount of workshop time to your BMW E46, as well as provide you with an accurate price for the work required in case there's a corrosion issue which needs addressing, or an exhaust mount problem, or rusted brake pipes for example.

This RACP Check & Report (with Comprehensive Vehicle Inspection) costs £435 including VAT.
You can read more about that initial process here.
We have 2x retail parks less than a mile away which have coffee shops, retail shops, fast food outlets, and a cinema for example. Alternatively Bristol City centre is an Uber/Taxi ride away which has great sights like Brunel's SS Great Britain, Clifton Suspension Bridge, as well as Queens Square, M-Shed, Historic Dock, Waterfront, and lots of shops and eateries.
