FYI, once I removed the radiator I was amazed to see so much trash collected between the radiator and condenser.

I decided to replace the OEM BMW water pump with a Bosch water pump that has the metal impeller. In addition, all other parts are Genuine BMW oem parts. I replace the following:
Expansion Tank
Mounting Plate
Fan Clutch
Fan Blade
Fan Shroud
Transmission Oil Cooler

4 Liters of Transmission Fluid Valvoline Maxlife
3.78 Liters Antifreeze Coolant G05

Items that still need to be replaced or repaired:
Damage done to the hood "several dents and chip paint"
Damage underhood insulation fire pad
Damage Belly Pan/Splash Pan
Damage Left and Right Brake Air Duct to support the belly pan.

I will go with the electric fan in the near future. I have driven the car over 700+ miles so far
