I got a 14" fan from Partsource a year ago for my old m50 swapped e30, kept the car cool in hot weather (with a 80deg thermostat). Its a wee bit on the thick side so it would have to be used as a pusher. also, it was quiet. i think the brand is hayden automotive or something like that

It was like 130 taxes in.

Do you think it would fit an e46? The fan in my 328 just went (it stays on regardless of the engine temperature)
