Yes, I've already done that and awaiting a response. It is ECS and the delivery was FedEx. I've had good luck and service from ECS so I expect we can work something out. Just a little disappointed as it took a couple of weeks from ordering to receiving the radiator so this delays even longer getting my E91 back on the road.

Loaded the E90 with the KONI SA for installation tomorrow. Pairing them with the OE M Sport springs.
Can't wait to experience a more compliant, but still sporty ride!
Coming from Bilstein B6, and I'll post a separate review comparing the two ASAP.

car sauce expensive now




still worth it

re: radiator chat showing up elsewhere, I'll say that with the 100+ temps we've seen here lately, I've noticed rock solid coolant temp and oil temp management from the system with no leaks, etc. Now that I have an oil gauge and can watch both, I'm starting to second guess my late summer plan of switching my oil filter housing with the n54 housing and adding an oil cooler.

My AC compressor sounds realllly bad.

About 90 here yesterday, sitting at idle with the AC on it's making a light rapping noise. It doesn't seem to like moving that swashplate to full stroke.

Strangely enough the system still works quite well. With some RPM it goes back to only making the benign pump-whine it's been singing forever.

As I am running Pure 2 with Port Injection, and all of the necessary surrounding hardware every year when it is time for inspection I crawl in, and hope. All good. Until next year.

Finished putting my car back together after changing the Oil pan gasket and putting kw v1 coilovers on my 2007 335xi… filled it up and took it for a Spin… parked… came back to a puddle of fuel under the car… guess fuel tank breather hose is next…

Fixed the oil pressure sensor wiring on the 528i.
Routine scan for codes showed a fault for the sensor - looks like the sheath just disintegrated due to age / heat.

Grabbed a swaybar at the scrapyard for a cousin who just picked up a 6mt lci e92 328 x drive.

E91 x drives (and x1 m-sport or euro xdrive police vehicles/extra load cars) used a different front swaybar. Only difference i can find is the larger diameter is longer so it should make a small difference. For $20 it cant hurt right

Let us know if it makes any difference

I'd prefer to put off buying a UUC as far as possible lol

Looks good. That job is on my "To-do" list. Where did you get the caps? Link if possible. Thanx.

Skies were really cloudy yesterday morning so I decided to give her a bath and wouldn’t you know, not a minute passed after I put on the mitt, swirled it in the soap bucket and started soaping her down the clouds magically parted and gave me that beautiful Phoenix summer sunshine. Finished up with a wax this morning before the sun came up. I LOVE that smooth paint feeling after a good bath and wax

After seeing the forecast for +100 temperatures this week, I washed it and contemplating what product to use to get rid of the swirl marks on the hood and roof. I’m thinking that Chemical Guys V36 may be required to do the job.

Hauled two bags of shredded hardwood mulch home in the trunk of the E93 from Home Depot. Washed and waxed, it could probably help you get laid if called upon. The car is a machine….it does it all.

Mine makes noise when it's low on refrigerant- maybe try a recharge first?

Took her out for a 340km run. She did so well all I could worry about is why BMW named the S85 that instead of S105 and the S65 should have been S84
