    Thanks all...
    Did a little test fit with my new parts the other day...
    Looks like the M3 parts may fit.
    I see the washer bottle is behind the bumper.... what do you guys think, use it or not.

    Also any sponsor vendors I should look at for the cooling system refresh.

    Giving taptalk a try, not crazy about it, any other apps for this site?

    are you using the kevlar bumper support for your M3 front end or do you have the aluminum bumper support? each one has a different washer tank. did yours come with the proper tank?

    Zak, I don't know if they are a sponsor, but FCPEuro has the BMW OE expansion tank. It's a Modine unit. When it arrived the front had a sticky spot, and it is literally where they removed the BMW part number label, and they Dremel off the BMW logo imprinted on the tank. I had bought a Behr-Hella unit, but I asked several people that had installed it (including 50sKid that has the E46 YouTube channel), and they had leaked, so I sent it back. Comparing the two, the Modine unit looks superior.They also sell the Saleri OE water pump, and all other components you would need. I ordered most cooling components that are OE, just not stamped with BMW. I did go with the aluminum water pump pulley instead of OE plastic.

    You got the M3 pieces fast. Looking good.

    Salty, yep i got the washer bottle with the front parts, it has the carbon support with the washer bottle that mounts behind the bumper and just the filler neck sticks up into the engine bay.... sure would open up some space.

    I know my other brother and Barry put on some new pulleys before Barry got to sick.

    If you’re going to use the M3 front fenders then you better do the rear quarters and OEM M3 Rear bumper or the car won’t look right.

    I hear ya, it will be a bit of a bastard for now. The pic sure exaggerates the flare from that angle.
    I have been on the hunt for some m3 rear Parts, and an S54.

    Yes, and the aluminum hood with hinges. I went thru your thread to find the engine swap, I am hoping I can pull it off in my garage.

    I put the old radiator in to see if this was going to work with the rest of the m3 radiator support, tested the fan motor and the headlights. Got a refresh on how this jigsaw puzzle goes back together.
