If you can just use an electric fan on an auto model, what was the point of them making a mechanical fan version? Just to sell more due to the consumers lack of knowledge?

Also what did you use to plug the hole up where the mechanical fan screwed into? Or you just left it open like that?
1. Could not tell you. BMW gets rid of parts all the time. Some E36 M3s came with aluminum doors for no reason. Some non-lux package E36 M3s came with lux package seats on the M3 instead of vaders for no reason. They just get rid of crap.

2. I just left it open. Turner Motorsports sells a cap for it if you must.
