(3-00586) OEM Valeo Radiator BMW Z3 M Coupe M Roadster (S52) - OEM Upgrade for E36/Z3 non-M (17111427165)
OEM Valeo replacement radiator for all S52 powered Z3 M Coupes and M Roadsters.
This radiator can also be used as an upgrade for all E36 6 cylinder cars (except the S54 M Coupe and M Roadster). The S52 Z3 M radiator is the largest factory radiator BMW made for the E36. The S52 Z3 M radiator is also a dual core radiator.
You may have read on the web that the S54 Z3 M radiator is the upgrade to have and that the S54 Z3 M radiator is a 3 core. The S54 Z3 M radiator has a large single core, it is not a 3 core. The S54 Z3 M radiator is very slightly thicker than the S52 Z3 M radiator but the S54 radiator is significantly shorter than the S52 radiator. The shortened length of the S54 radiator is to accommodate the oil cooler on the S54.
So what does all this mean?
If you are running, or plan to run the S54 oil cooler the OEM S54 Z3 M radiator is the radiator you want.
If you want an OEM radiator upgrade for your 6 cylinder E36 but do not plan on running the S54 oil cooler, then this, the OEM S52 Z3 M radiator is the radiator you want.
