Any idea if the old punctured one could be re-cored and saved for a spare? I'll keep the old one just in case.
Here's a photo of the new one before the parts guy boxed it up.
Wow. From what I can tell there's a different part number for the D, but looking at your replacement, you should try a used one from a gas car before spending big buxx on that new one. Every shop that installs intercoolers will have stock coolers banging around. Try calling one of our installers (check this list: http://www.helix13.com/3-series-bmw/headquarters/#go
) near you and see if they have a stocker for you to borrow.
