Radiator, OEM - E36 323is/325i/328i/M3
Direct replacement main cooling radiator from the original source. Replaces BMW part #17111723784
The OEM Radiator for your US-spec E36 M3 or E36 325/328 is an ideal replacement, whether for a failed or failing radiator, or simply as a preventative cooling system overhaul.
The radiator on E36 6 cylinder models is a known failure item and can leave you stranded. If your radiator hasn't been replaced in the last 5 years or 60k miles, we recommend inspecting it or replacing it as a preventative measure. Be particularly sure to inspect the plastic inlet / outlet hose connections. The plastic on the E36 radiator gets brittle and fragile over the years as it sees cold and hot temps and the plastic breaks down. This can lead to a sudden crack and loss of coolant. Avoiding a blown radiator and overheating is one of the best ways to ensure long life for BMW 3 Series M50, M52, S50 or S52 US Spec engine.
