Why did Mango get a sticky ???

Just noticed the cooling systems sticky..

Replace the entire cooling system and cooling system parts list. really that deserves a sticky?

Considering our cooling systems are the primary failure point of our cars, and his post is extremely useful, yes it is deserved.

Considering that even with the sticky there we still get at least one cooling system related thread a day, I'd say it's warranted

Mango's guide is very comprehensive and allows us to easily reference the parts list to keep our precious aluminum blocks cool. It deserves a sticky because there are constantly new people flooding in, buying e46's and they should know right away what's going on under the hood. Thanks Mango!

Agreed, even if you don't agree with the replace everything mentality, it helps that newbies read up on the fact that the entire system is suspect.

Haters gonna hate

*Edit* Definitely was a lifesaver for me, helped me plan my cooling system replacement to a t.

It's one of the most informative threads about your car on this entire forum.

It's crucial to understand the risks of the cooling system, which is why every E46 owner needs to see that thread from the moment they enter this sub-forum.

This thread is really very pointless... Who cares who was the one who wrote it. It is relevant information regardless. Mango just happens to be the SME (Subject Matter Expert) on it.

OP is just upset that he didn't get a sticky for his DIY on running your car filter-less, his thread was super informative after all...

doesn't matter people don't read the stickies anyway.
Example there is one there now about posting in Proper Forums. like this thread should not be posted here

if there is a thread that should not be stickied it's the "What did you do to your Car Today" thread. I don't get how that is a must read?? are members really going to go back and read through hundreds of pages? I don't understand that sticky

"Why did Mango get a sticky?" sounds like it needs a punchline.
