Post newbie

My Name is Chase. i bought my first bmw in NOV. it had 177xxx miles and a lot of body damage(used to be a rental). since ive had it i have bought raceland ultimo coilovers(thoughts?) right before i installed the coils i had a bike cut me off and had to lock up my brakes. while doing so i broke a rear wheel lug bolt and snapped a rear spring. thiniking i got lucky i just threw on the new coils and went to drive home. got about a 1/4 mile down the road and heard a pop. then some grinding at idle. i got out and was pouring coolant out from the underside of my car. my guess is waterpump? im currently working on replacing that and my accesory fan that was shredded with the waterpump going out. any suggestions of websites for reliable parts at a good price? thanks for listening. im looking forward to help with my issues and helping others with things i have previously done!

Welcome to Bimmerwerkz.

How did you snap a lug bolt by stopping? That should never have happened. Same with the rear spring. A spring should not snap because of stopping. Thats unsafe, and I hope you had an inspection done.

As for the racelands, their a decent entry level coil over for the street. They are for street driving and not race use in anyway. Dont expect the best performance, but for dropping the car they work well.

Define "pouring out"? The water pump is made with a plastic impeller on pre 1997 models. They were known for imploding catastrophicly. Replace it with a Steward metal pump. They are top of the line for the E36. While your doing that, make sure you replace your rad hoses, coolant explansion tank, thermostat, and the thermostat housing with a metal one. The thermostat housing was again plastic and known for cracking and leaking.
