My Ride: Looking for BMW
Just moved to Dubai brought my E46 with me need to know about GCC upgrades

I just moved to Dubai from New Jersey USA and I want to swap out the radiator and thermostat to larger capacity ones and make it GCC standard befoe the summer comes. Where can I get this work done at a good price or does anyone have the part numbers of the items I need and a good place to buy them?

Also I need some new factory wheels, it has a vibration I never noticed before until I started driving on these lovely smooth roads so when I had the wheels balanced it turns out I have some bent rims.

Thanks for the help

Buy a manual, radiator and thermostat can be DIY changes. Or go to www.pelicanparts.com they have a step by step process with pictures how to install / uninstall parts. Not sure what parts numbers you are looking for but you can buy racing/ heavy duty cooling parts from www.bimmerworld.com, www.turnermotorsports.com or HPF. CA automotive is closer (UK) but im not sure if they have those kind of parts. Theres some other E46M owners on here that are in or near UAE, might wanna hit them up as well

the vibration is probably from a tire, and alignment. especially considering some jokers strap down or car using suspension components when shipping.

That being the case I am not the best person to ask. I brought this with me from the states when I moved as that was cheaper than buying a car over here, and it is a bone stock daily driver. The better guys to ask are at the Bimmer shop I work with, Das Autoworks also this forum has some good info http://bmwclubuae.com/

In Dubai I have seen it all from totally tricked out custom to a lot of bone stock, also BMW is kinda passaa' anyone has them, they are as common here as Toyotas. If you want trick those guys all have custom Fararies, Mazaraties. Auston M and Lamborginies. I have seen some rare supers cars that I did not even know what they were and once I saw a Buguttie Vayron.
