    Default 525 aluminium thermostat housing

    Aluminum Thermostat Housing: New
    Most E36 3 Series and E34 5 Series cars equipped with M50 motors have plastic thermostat housings. Over time, the constant heating and cooling can cause the plastic housings to weaken and break. Don't get stranded! Replace your plastic housing with our quality aluminum piece.

    Default Great advice!

    My Indy did this last year when I rreplaced the water pump, belts and pulleys.

    I also wish there was a better radiator. I put a new behr in about 45,000 miles ago because the plastic neck broke. I have heard that should plan on replacing the radiator AGAIN at 60,000 as preventative mantaintence!
    Thanks,
