I hope it isn't. But I will be watching.

Not that big of a deal imho.Personally, i'd rather have the bolt backing out, than breaking. Way less labor, and btw i have no warranty.

Be glad they backed out and didn't shear off like the forward diffo mounting bolt on my E36M3 did. It was a real PIA to get the shank out of the diffo.

Lots of HP + hard shifts = worn drive train components
