    The radiator support: Is there a structural/handling advantage to the heavy duty radiator support or do you need that to do the fan conversion?

    Stiffen up the chassis more. I was all about that since Iím taking the front end apart. Might as well upgrade while doing maintenance

    Thanks to all for your complements

    thanks Stuart! Best part of owning several nice cars... when I take one completely off-line for much needed maintenance/mods I can take my time working on it

    Looks like among other things that I have planned for my ///M for this upcoming winter project, I will be changing out my mirror motors as well...

    I will be getting full auto-fold OEM E46 M3 side mirrors over the winter to integrate into my ///M. More in store for my ///M project boys and girls...

    thats awesome! so are you just going to cut all the retrofit BS and just buy a new set of euro power fold mirrors brand new and not mess with the silly power fold motor retrofit stuff?

    if you go the retrofit route, i know a guy on the M5 boards that parts out M5s for a loving and always has bad power fold motors that have stripped gears. the motors are a direct fit and wire for M3s as well and you just need a $50ish gear repair kit form ebay/amazon. the power fold motors usually go for around $60-120 for a pair + $100 for 2 gear repair kits.

    I think the euro power fold mirrors with out glass from BMW are around $700ish each mirror so around $1400 for a pair unless you get some kind of super cool snazzy discount.
