    After speaking to mishimoto I was assured the radiator and expansion tank would be a direct fit to me e36 328i 1996. This doesn't appear to be the case, the installation states the coolant tank is attached to the fan shroud on the left of the rad opposed to the integral stock tank on the right...

    I recently flushed my coolant and after a short drive this hose started to expand and drip. I think that there is a air lock and that the hose is also dead. I have a new hose now but in order to replace it can I just drain the radiator or will I need to drain the entire block? It's the upper...

    I have read about people putting the bigger m3 rad onto their 323,325 or 328 and changing from the silly bleeding system to a self bleeding system. I have searched high and low but have been unable to find out exactly what people do with the hose that runs from the engine to the expansion tank...

The coolant level still lowers!! Question - How long do I need to keep topping it up? I only fitted the rad on...
