Hey goobers....so what are your thoughts on OEM BMW radiators? Is it worth it to get a stock piece or just get something else?

I just noticed that my intercooler has some missing hardware. Looks like I won't be installing it this weekend until I can get my missing pieces. Sigh...

Mounting hardware, yea. Just a couple of small pieces, but without them, the intercooler cannot be safely mounted.

Mistakes can happen with any company. I sent a PM to the vendor and hopefully he can make things right.

Just got back from working on my e46 at the warehouse...

Learned many things today, and there were quite a few surprises, none of them good apart from me eating Vietnamese sandwiches for the first time.

Side skirts are one of the least noticeable mods, IMO. Buy some M3 mirrors. That will make a much bigger difference!

and i do run and do other forms of cardio (that cycling class kicks my ass), just not my main focus
Sounds like a solid plan. I still think cardio and losing fat just makes a huge visual difference, which it seems you are after. Or is there a strength or size goal?

When the zombies come, you'll change your mind. Just think of what happens to the fat guy in every zombie movie/tv show.
