  • Guys, didn't mean to be abrasive. When I posted I just got through reading a ton of forums about the subject in which people were arguing about which is best. Like Ed said, I have kind of made up my mind. I can definitely understand why BMW would not institute (probably due the logic that Ed mentioned). It's good logic, if you're a car manufacturer. But in my case, I've got an...

  • I've read alot of forums about this and I can't believe that people generally think that a mechanical fan is better. They have got to be kidding. It is a well known fact that an electric fan is much better. That is why new cars almost all have electric fans. I've seen them on dyno's many times and electric fans are alway better (improving hp and mpg) and cool better at lower temps...

  • Here's the question: Does any one know of a company that sells an electric fan(s) kit for an e28? It's definitely a given that electric fans cool better (especially at low speed or a stopped idle) and pull less power from the engine (higher hp). Alot of people have been switching them on all sorts of vehicles (including hotrods). The only question is: is there a kit that I can...

  • Has anyone installed electric fans on their e28. I have a 1988 535is and the fan clutch is bad. I've thought about replacing with electric (due to additional cooling and added hp). Can anyone give me advice (if you know of a model/manufacturer/etc...that will work on our e28s). Thanks, ____________________________________________________________________________________ Sick sense...

  • The best way to get someone back like that is to call and talk to them for an hour or so (interested in his product) and then after the hour has passed, simply say "This is for the spam!" and hang up. It wastes some of your time but it feels real good. I had a bad experience with Dell (just one time). Had a computer come in that wouldn't boot, bad hard drive. They sent me another...

  • I have an 88 535is. One window (front passenger) has stopped working and all of the others are very slow. I checked on the price of new replacement motors and it is really high. Can you modify or replace the motors with cheaper motors easily? Has anyone done this or seen it done? Thanks everyone, __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?

  • To clean the drains: Don't use a coat hanger. Use weed eater/grass trimmer line. It bends easily and is forceful when guided by the sides of the tunnel of the drain lines. It also won't cause any damage to the inside of the drain lines. If you damage them or somehow remove the paint that protects them it could cause more problems down the line. I have done this twice before and it...

  • I've changed one out. It's not too difficult. It is located (as you stand in front of the car facing towards it) just in front of the steering wheel (on the engine side under the hood. It is at the top. You can't see the bomb (brake accumlator) that easily but if you look carefully, you'll see it just below. I can't remember the wrench sizes, so you'll have to check it out. Check...
