(3-00585) OEM Behr S54 Z3 M Coupe & M Roadster Radiator (17112227281)
OEM Behr replacement radiator. Direct fit for all 2001-2002 Z3 based M Coupe & M Roadster models.
This radiator can also be used as an upgrade for all E36 6 cylinder cars. While the radiator core is slightly shorter (to accommodate the S54's oil cooler), it is thicker than the core on a stock E36 6 cylinder radiator. The overall capacity of the S54 Z3 M radiator is about 10% greater than a stock E36 6 cylinder radiator.
This radiator can be used in vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions after measuring and drilling 2 small holes in the upper lip of the radiator core.
This is the perfect radiator solution if you plan on running the OE S54
Z3 oil cooler. If that's not in your plans, the OEM S52 Z3 radiator is a
better upgrade. If you plan on using this radiator without the OE S54 oil cooler, plan
on provisioning something to block off the space at the bottom of the
radiator where the oil cooler would sit so air flows through the radiator and not under it.
