Ok I'm shopping for a new Radiator. mine leaks a bit and tells me often to check coolant level, its very annoying.
Aftermarket is almost not an option simply because they start at over $300 I don't have $300+ for one even though i would love an all metal one. So I will be going with OEM. The deal with OEM is BEHR, Nissens, and who knows else makes these things.
Now is Behr or Nissens (or other) particular manufacture of the radiators better than another? Or are they same? Either can be had on ebay for about $140.... some with free shipping even...
I'm not sure if it is a compsite or metal waterpump... But i think its a pretty decent deal. With the exeption of ebay most radiators for an e36 go for about $200, water pumps $40-$60 and Thermostat Housing is $30ish... I'm kinda anxious for it all to show up but I'm also kinda scared of doin it all.
I used to work with DI water at an old job and it was demineralized, and de ionized and all sorts of stuff.. Suck the minrals right out of ya cause its so devoid of anything.... but i drank it a couple times just cause i was thisty. I didn't care if i lost a few minerals as long as i wasnt thirsty any more.
