Our Motorsport Thermostat is a must for any E46 M3 or Euro E36 M3 that sees time on track where temperatures are above normal. We've found that the cooler you can make these engines run, the more power you'll have, so this 55 °C Motorsport Thermostat is ideal. Longer warm-up time should be expected in cooler areas of the country.
Fits all years of E46 M3, 2001-2002 MZ3 S54, and Z4M. Also Fits Euro-spec S50B30 and S50B32 E36 M3 engines - will NOT work in US-spec E36 engines.
An o-ring is NOT included. Please see our o-ring options under Related Items below.
