But still... If anyone can get a Z4M fan for less than $400 I'll be sold on it.
I don't really know where to look. Pelican only has the "Genuine BMW" listed, and most other sites don't even list the part. Z4M isn't exactly a common car, so I guess the demand for non-BMW branded OEM parts isn't very high (and I doubt the fan fails very often). Cheapest I've found is thebmwpartstore.com at $500 shipped. I haven't really tried asking any local dealers, but I doubt they'd be much cheaper. I'm tempted to just try the 390W version. I can't imagine running into any issues with the temperatures we get around here
