    FS: Mishimoto aluminum radiator for E36/Z3, stock Z3M 3-row radiator

    Mishimoto radiator is one track day old. I needed more cooling, so I upgraded to a bigger radiator. Great condition with no leaks.
    SOLD

    I also have a stock M Coupe 3-row radiator. This is better than your typical 2-row E36 replacement radiator as it's more efficient. Dimensions are the same as a stock E36 rad. It has a few bent fins from lightly coming into contact with the cooling fan, but it holds pressure perfectly.

    SOLD

    I'm interested in the mishimoto radiator. How much would shipping be to Florida from where you are? Also will the mishimoto radiator fit a 1.9L?

    The stock radiator in the S54 cars are 3-row, but the Mishimoto is 2-row. Sorry for any confusion. This is in new condition. I used it for one track day in 100 degree heat and realized I need much more cooling in my car due to a relocated oil cooler.

    Mishimoto 3-row made specifically for the Z3. They call it their "x-line". I was able to source one locally for about $300.

    Sorry, I'm not looking to ship internationally. The plastics look to be in good condition, though.

    This will only fit 6-cyl Z3s.

    Thanks though. GLWS!

    I'm actually not sure if it does. Something tells me the hose locations are different on the 4-cyl, but I could be mistaken. Can someone enlighten me?

    I just think it would be strange if the radiator mounting cups were different on the 4 and 6 cylinders. I think someone should give it a try.

    Can't some of those guys with V8s in the 4cyl Z3s tell us if we can put massive radiators in the cars?

    If you have the M coupe radiator laying around still I'll take it off your hands.

    I have the 1997 m44 4cyl 1.9l bmw z3 and Iím currently in the middle of installing the Mishi Moto radiator designed for the BMW Z3 . So far everything matches up Iím not completed with it yet I should be done by tomorrow or the next day. I will post as many pics and information as I can when I come back. So far all I can say is everything lines up right you just need to get the mishimoto expansion tank with it!

    Well you can find it strange then because it dose fit! Think about this the 4cyl and 6 cyl use the same transmission to. It took me just saying f$&k it and buying all of it anyway to see if yíall where right. Looks light I got lucky. Just make sure you get a expansion tank

    - - - Updated - - -

    Yes is can fit Iím doing mine right now! Worth it to!

    - - - Updated - - -

    It dose not leave us out donít be so fast to lose hope. The bmw z3s use almost all the same parts even the 1.9, 2.8, and 3.0 all use the same transmission to!

    - - - Updated - - -

    YES IT WILL FIT THE 1.9l
