Question Doing cooling system overhaul very soon - what else should i do?

From my reading around here, I should replace belts, tensioners, pulleys while doing the cooling system right?

I am about to order the overhaul kit from Tischer but want to know what else I should attack while down there. I've already bought the 2 belts (conti's) but am having alot of trouble finding correct part numbers for the rest - pulleys, tensioners etc. So part numbers would be great, and any other things you can think of for me to consider.

I drive a late '00 325i step.

TIA

Can't you get the part numbers off of Tischer's site? PM Evan @ Tischer...he could probably help you out.

Read a few DIY write-ups first.

You're going to need some special tools for the fan removal.

You're also going to need an angled ratchet to drain the engine block, torx sockets.... etc.
