Did you do the SPAL Electric Fan setup? If so are these all the parts that I need?

i blew my mechanical fan twice
, with no warning. bimmer shop(yes, that's what it's called) thinks the likely culprit was the water pump. anyhow, because of the fan blades exploding, it took out my radiator, a bunch of hoses, and even punctured the hood. i was actually going to eventually do the electric fan conversion with a SPAL fan
, but that one requires a new relay, thermostat, and wiring kit, as well as a mounting kit...
so Kens route would be easier
if that's true, just go with the SPAL route, like i said.
