Referred to as a heat exchanger, for vehicles with manual transmissions
Part number: BMW-17217528609 is a new, unused Genuine BMW engine oil cooler. An oil cooler is designed to keep your engine cool and running at an optimal engine temp. Your engine transfers heat to oil within the engine and the oil cooler acts as a radiator to reduce oil temperature.
The original parts used by BMW to build your car are available as replacement parts under the “Genuine BMW” brand. Manufactured under the direction of BMW, expect excellent quality and a premium price since these parts are exclusively available through the BMW Dealership network.
You may not realize this, but the parts that make up your BMW are not necessarily manufactured by BMW. No cause for concern, as BMW designs the part, hires a manufacturer and ensures its quality to you, including a 1 year warranty. In fact, many of these manufacturers have been making parts for BMW for decades and are experts in their own right. In our industry these manufacturers are called OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) or OES (Original Equipment Suppliers), and are often brands you recognize including Hella, Bosch, Bilstein and Lemforder. Don’t be surprised to open that Genuine BMW parts box and find a Bosch branded part inside.
