Don't forget to bleed and bleed and bleed the system of air. It is that easy ;o)

WTB: '92ish 525i/5 or '90ish 535i/5

Funny you posted this today. Two days ago my '90 325i overheated due to a bad thermostat and left me on the side of the road. Pep boys actually had it on the shelf, as well as the O-ring seal.($24 & $1) Removal of 3 10 mm bolts and ten minutes latter, the car was up and running. It was really that easy. Looks like you have a 5 series so I'm not sure if there is a big difference.

Any suggestions, brands, is it easy to change, are there any tricks, or is it straight forward.

Thanks guys, see you Sunday.
