As far as fit, now you can use this as a reason to drop a couple el-bees.

Above all be careful in it. Bad mods ruin a car slowly, but a spin at 60 does it in a few seconds. I wonder which gen stability control you have in it, I would guess the better 2nd gen one which is actually useable. What does it say on the button?

Coworkers who are ///m enthusiasts say not to mod it at all... period.

"BMW put serious R+D into it, a high schooler doesn't know better" is the phrase this one guy used

aside from getting an all metal radiator and replace other parts that are engineered to fail

That's like putting a steak in front of a hungry dog and yelling "stay!"

How are you going to suppress your natural ricer urges?

Indeed, the M cars come pre-modded.

HIDs, aluminum rad, maybe stiffer suspension if you need/want but that's about it.

Your shocks are probably close to done, so a set of nice ones can be considered an upgrade, but new OEM are pretty decent too. I run koni adjustable, you can really feel a difference when they are set to respective extremes.

it needs a lot of corrections made, and it doesn't really need much improving. I will probably do some strut braces at the very least.

I do sort of wish first gear weren't so boring/useless, I think thats the biggest difference between a boosted sports car/na sports car

it's so stupendous when everything is in good condition there's no reason I should aspire to have a buttload of power or ""better"" aftermarket parts, except in a few cases (radiator namely)

to be fair OEM rads are cheap, easy to replace and last 80-100k and fit perfectly.

I do have an all metal rad but the extra cost offsets the long lasting benefit.

Duder who is selling his E36 M3 told me that when the radiator fails it fails catastrophically and you have almost no time to react

P/O tells me this car has a reasonably new one (and says I should have a receipt showing it) but I probably have thousands of dollars of other repairs to make so that'll keep me busy.

They fail like any other rad with plastic end tanks. Usually starts pissing and steaming from some corner. Its hard to notice in some cases, in others you smell it/hear it/notice missing coolant.

I think hes pulling your leg to upsell the matal rad Ive replaced rads in my toyta truck, avalon, celica - others too for friends. Its not like when a hose pops off, barring physical damage.

Always watch your gauges

Don't worry, even if this thing proves rock solid reliable, he'll find a way to nickle and dime himself to death..
