I'm getting this:

And two of these:

I was asking my BMW niggas over at the BMW forums I go to and they had a few tips, which you may know or not:

you'll need a 10mm, 11mm, and 13mm socket. Make sure you bleed the system by opening the relief valve (phillips head beside the radiator cap, under the radiator cowl). Run the car for a few minutes with the heat on. BE CAREFUL AROUND THE ALUMINUM RADIATOR- it damages easily and is very expensive. Same goes for the fan... $600. The radiator support bracket makes this job a bit more interesting.


And about the coolant:
diluted 50/50 with distilled water


Do you have distilled water at the shop or do I have to bring some? BUMBSSSSSSSSSs!!!

Fuck this shit cost me $115.98. Fucking BMW.



You don't need distilled water, that's a bunch on nonsense. The only thing it helps to do is raise the boiling point of the coolant. If you get your coolant hot enough to boil with regular water, you best pull over anyway or your engine is about to be toast. Some people say the minerals in normal water degrade the cooling system faster then distilled, I say their full of shit. I have easily done 5,000 jobs related to cooling systems and never once used distilled water.

Wednesday should be just fine. The job takes about an hour all in all to get done and I've done these before.

If it said BMW on the box I would have thrown it away, like all things with that name should be.
