    Aftermarket, meaning non-genuine BMW or non OEM parts?

    Dead due to damaged valve. We will save her soul for future use, but the body will go to car heaven...or another owner...who may or may not turn her into a race car...

    I think of aftermarket as anything not genuine manufacturer. Like " I got this awesome aftermarket Turbonator off Ebay, their guaranteed to add 13hp"

    Well after being dicked around by parts places. I went with FPS for all of parts needed. I would not recommend them, for anything. I ended up going Rein hoses, bmw t stat, bmw coolant temp sensor, Hepu water pump. BMW coolant.
    Other than the 5 trips to the store for parts, it was a smooth, fairly quick job.

    All the belts look good, the expansion tank, and rad looked in good shape.

    I believe the leak was coming from the coolant sensor in the lower rad hose. Although, at the t-stat I did see crust, and the gasket looked a little wonky.

    Thanks fellas!

    FCP Euro came though. I finally used my credit that they gave me from a sour purchase more than 7 years ago.

    Looking forward to putting on the new rotors, pads, and the floor mats were just for me.

    Thanks again.

    Give FCP another shot. Or send them a message at "sales@fcpeuro.com" explaining why you are pissed with them. I bet they make good.

    Rein is totally fine, as is Wahler for the t-stat.

    ECS has been completely awful when they mess up (everyone messes up), but FCP always makes good for me.

    (note - I responded to page 1, not reading the rest! But I stand by what I wrote, so I will leave it)
