Cooling System Refresh Et Al.

Just got the E70 back from my indy after having the cooling system, transmission fluid, plugs and coils renewed.
Water pump/thermostat had 63K on them but the pump was pretty noisy and I suspect not working just right. Have been monitoring the temperatures via Torque app and while everything seemed to be working I knew it was a matter of when rather than if it would fail. New pump is quiet and the system cools down much quicker now from what I could see on the drive home.
Also replaced all the hoses and had the new hose going to the head fitted with an aluminum connector that attaches to the head in place of the plastic failure prone type.
Transmission filter and fluid drain performed and Iridium plugs and new coil packs fitted up top. Running like a dream now and I hope that takes care of things for a while so my bank account can recover.
Biggest problem apart from the missing "Lock" reported in another post was an exhaust leak between turbo rear and front of the catalytic converter. Seems the clamp and seal are one use only and need to be replaced.
I had to do two 90 mile parts runs for those parts to my local dealer in the '01. The old girl seemed to love the long runs. She is going under the knife next.
