Not done yet, but arrived for the next oil change, a new oil level sensor. Notice where the BMW logo was ground off the Hella brand unit for aftermarket sale at a third the cost of through the dealer.

Awesome!

I am rebuilding a 2000 E46 323i. Almost done with the interior. Finished the door panels and Friday I installed the new headliner and this week I will be re-conditioning the leather seats, front and back.

Some officials change brake fluid even if the car is brain new but is not sold for 2 years and engine oil for 1 year.
There is even nothing to discuss. You can not ignore safety when you drive 20 years old Bmw.

Biggest upgrade but the cheapest!! Swapped from a mechanical fan to an electric. It’s like a brand new car!!! 159 bucks from WorldPAC.

The real benefit is the sound of silence :)
I also have switched to electric fan but still keep factory stuff.
Viscous has better cooling + additional cooling = x2 protection from overheating. M52/M54's can not hold high temps. In terms of economy there is no energy coming from nowhere. Automatic puts additional load to the engine and cooling system + gearbox cooler cooling.
If your viscous works perfectly, it has only 1 con - sometimes puts additional load on high rpms.
German where not stupid at all when made these systems.
