Check Bali's guide for sure. That a great place to start. Responding to your PM, another thing to check is the ignition switch.

One of the documented failure modes of the electric fan is not being able to run at medium to high. This causes it to be missed in some diagnoses. Look up BMW-North's excellent documentation on E46...

You say you're convinced it's not the battery. What diagnosis have you done to make that determination?

I also wanted to point out that I got away with another 100k miles after re-torquing the pan bolts to spec. Then it became inevitable at around 160k.
