On the E46 models produced until feb 2000 suffered models produced after mar
2000 should have the improved subframe and there is no known problem with
these newer models - at least not according to the German BMW clubs.
If you prod around in the various 3-series forums in E46 Fanatics,
Bimmerfest, or Roadfly I think you will find many instances of owners of
E46's after 2000 that have reported problems.
I have a 2003 and I fervently hope you are right and these owners were
wrong...but I doubt it.
BTW: The lady who is telling us the story ist the same who made the
german synchronisation for Gillian Anderson a.k.a. Special Agent Dana
Scully in "The X Files". Her voice has become quite popular since.

Wow! I would hope GM or Ford would make a video like this. BMW has
their assembly plant work and automated lines down TIGHT!
I'm still waiting for the day I can spec out my car on the BMW website,
then watch via following web cam as it's built from the sheet metal to
finished product. Or at least have a DVD of the whole build on the
passenger seat when I take possesion :) I would pay a premium for that
kind of service.
GM and Ford probably know they can't compete and producing a similar
video would likely be business suicide. Perhaps I'm wrong, but I
sincerely doubt their production process is even in the same league.
It would have been nice to see more of the engine/transmission
construction on the BMW film, though I don't knock what they're already
produced as I've not seen a single other manufacturer release anything
