Unlike the E39, Iíve never heard this part to be a weak spot, that is why Iím asking. But I guess the smart thing to do is to replace it anyway since Iíll be in there. Iím just over 100k.

Radiator

Happy Thanksgiving guys.

Quick question,

How weak is the radiator on the 4.8IS? Can all other cooling parts be replaced and not the radiator without failure down the road?

Guy who does valve stem seal job in NY.

Hi guys.

I believe there was a guy on here who works/worked for Bmw that does the valve stem seal job on the side. I think he lives on Long Island in NY. Anyone remembers who that was?

Windshield fluid pumps. Quick question.

Mine are leaking. It seems like it's the grommet but I'm not sure. I noticed that the factory ones are about 60 dollars. And the after market is about 16 dollars.
