    E34 540i radiator options..

    I'm going to be personally holding you responsible if my new Nissens rad doesn't last 10+ years then!!

    Went for a Nissens heavy duty radiator in the end. 40mm core instead of usual standard 32mm. I'll let you know how I get on when it arrives in the post. Those all aluminium radiators seemed to have very mixed reviews. Thanks for the replies chaps. Much appreciated.

    E30 325i just sold for over 51K at auction

    Either way that's 50k+ for an E30 325i sport. That's a lot of money. Some one out there really wanted that car! Thing is, with that price tag, it's just going to get squirreled away for another 30 years and never get used. The new owner will no doubt want to protect their investment and unfortunately the only time it's likely to "see" the road is when it's on a back of s transport lorry on the way to its new home! £50k+ for a 325i sport! Wow, just wow..

    E34 540i radiator options..

    Thanks for the input, much appreciated. I'm still tempted to drop the stat' to 85*C but seeing as I hardly use the car at the moment, I'm not in a particular hurry to swap it over anytime soon. So maybe something worth considering in the future. What is priority however, is to change out the radiator as the car is near on unusable with the currently leaky radiator. I'm still very tempted with the Mishimoto swap though as they supposedly have life time warranty. Having said that, I've read very mixed reviews concerning Mishimoto radiators. Some say they are brilliant and never had any issues, others saying they are cheap Chinese junk (poor QC) and were constantly plagued with leaks....

    Modifying Hella headlights - LHD to RHD pattern

    Having read all this, I'm really quite surprised that it is so much hassle converting E39 headlights from lhd to rhd and vice versa. My E36 Hella headlights had a toggle on the back of them that allowed you to switch from rhd to lhd and back again at the flick of a switch. Seems odd that they didn't incorporate similar technology into the E39's

    Thanks for the input Flandy, much appreciated. However, having looked into this waterless coolant stuff, I don't think it's for me. I think either way, I'm definitely going to try the 85°C stat and see how it goes. I just haven't quite decided if it's worth coughing up the extra dough for the Mishimoto rad yet

    What have you done on your E34 Today

    Off the top of my head, honestly can't remember. However, I do remember that at the time of purchase, it was a relatively cheap after market one so in a way, I'm not entirely surprised. I'm probably going to replace it with either a Nissens or BEHR standard one. Or what I'm very tempted to do it is replace it with a Mishimoto E36 M3 version. Yes it's more than twice the price, but I'm hoping it will last a lot longer. Supposedly the Mishimoto ones have a lifetime warranty, so that definitely appeals to me
