Designed to fit all E46, E85, and E86 models, for automatic and manual transmission

This radiator by Nissens is designed to be a one stop solution for all E46 models despite the transmission installed from the factory. Radiators are a common replacement item on higher mileage or older vehicles. With modern radiators, all aluminum designs have been replaced with radiators that use plastic end tanks crimped onto the core and sealed with a rubber gasket. Most commonly the radiator hose necks will crack causing leaks or the end tank will crack/separate from the core. In either case it is mandatory to replace the radiator. Additionally, high mileage radiators can also have their cooling fins clogged up with road debris reducing their cooling performance. While this debris can be cleaned out it is usually more cost and time effective to replace the radiator as a whole unit.

Per Nissens, please read the following information in regards to the second valve on the radiator:

Since 1998 and the introduction of the BMW E46 3 Series there have been a few challenges when converting the radiator from a manual to an automatic transmission. The Nissens version comes with the manual valve as a default. This is necessary in order to perform the proper pressure tests during production. With each radiator a second valve (for auto transmissions) is included along with instructions. One area we have seen that has caused some difficulty is the fact that the auto transmission valve can be installed backwards. Below are some photos that indicate the wrong and right way to install. Hopefully this will assist you and your customers. This will also eliminate those customers who are unable to insert the valve deep enough and hopefully eliminate the tabs from being broken off the valves.

Haven't driven much with it, but its got good reviews and fit just fine. Will update if any leaks. Also, grab an automatic transmission oil cooler thermostat if you have an auto transmission, mine broke to pieces when removing my expansion tank.

Nissens Radiator

I ended up trying the nissens radiator for my 2004 e46 BMW 325ci after trying to use a spectra radiator from autozone just to find out it didn't fit the expandtion tank mounting plate in the car. So I took back the spectra which cost me 155 and orderd the nissens radiator for 125 plus a new BMW mounting plate for 50. So 175 for the OEM parts and 45 for the ups 2 day air since fcp is on the east coast and I'm on the west coast parts came fast and the nissens radiator looked and fit the same as my BMW one from the factory which was 11 years old with 150000 miles. I would stick with the nissens radiator for all e46 BMWs thanks again fcp for great customer service and great parts.

Great Quality, Good Fit.

This radiator has worked very well. Since putting it on my 2003 e46 325xi, I've had no problems in 10,000 miles. The PO's of my car never changed out the factory radiator in 200k miles that the car has on it, which to me is just asking for trouble. I recently did the complete cooling system overhaul and this was part of it. Couldn't have gotten it for a better price. Thanks.
