So heres a nice update.

The Bimmer world C&R Racing Oil Cooler arrived so fast I hardly had time to realize it had been delivered to my house. The timing is perfect because the temps are begining to climb in Bahrain already reaching 33-40c

Here are the pics....

Comparison pics between OEM oil cooler on top and Bimmerworld at the bottom. The BW C&R Racing Direct-fit, dual-pass cooler - 25% more cooling capacity than stock is at least 30% larger than the OEM oil cooler. The capacity has also doubled...




Time to install....


The two mounting holes needed a bit of modding/filing. 5 secs and it was done...
Before


after..


Installed If you notice we pulled the rubber part of the cover under the cooler so it kinda holds the rubber piece cover there and directs airflow into the cooler...






BW Oil cooler pics through front bumper. Very Stealth as its hardly even noticeable...




As I have the OEM CSL intake and all the associated tubing I had a little bit of an issue with reinstalling the oil lines back as the lower CSL Intake hose was in the way. Pulled it away a bit and connected the lines All good and no need for any cutting or modding in any way....






STOPTECH ST40 355mm Drilled BBK installed ....




A Shot of my SS RACE or SS Sport as its known in the USA...


New hood Struts....


YUM

Thanks Mate. We'll see how useful it is soon enough.

I'll be starting a new thread on its performance and updating it whenever I drive the car. The main HOT months will be June, July, August, September and October. Perfect time to see how this Oil cooler aids in cooling the car in our 110-125f summer temps with 70-90% humidity

It's been pretty hot in Bahrain of late. Temps went up to 125f today, was seeing some increased water temps so I sent the car into the shop. Had an HPF fan clutch lying around so thats going in with coolant flush and water wetter and an oil change.

I'll report back as soon as I get the car back, some time this week.

Here is a sweet Update. So I got my SS V1 Headers and Cat Delete Pipes around 10 days back but couldn't get time to install them. Finally got a chance today to drop the car off at the shop to cool off so we can start the work on Saturday....

Some pics....





















The Vibratechincs Engine Mounts will be going in too.....



This is how I left her to cool down.....







More updates to follow on Saturday hopefully......
