    Rest of the fan can be found on Motorway M3, so be careful when driving there
    Apparently the fan shroud took most of the impact of the 'flying objects' and no damage to the hood, even the radiator survived

    Scary stuff... Makes me want to change mine to an OE one! I have a cheapo one in there at the moment but it must only have about 10k miles on it if that... Hmmmmm.

    Yuk there's some nasty pics there. The shredded fan one has to be an owner's worst nightmare.


    Cheers,

    I agree, right up there with an exploded hose at the side of the M57. (e34.sport knows that one) The bonnet on an E34 sure does have some sail like properties... James May would be made up.

    Thats OK. Just wear a crash helmet and safety goggles when you open the bonnet

    Too common on BMWs.
