Need soon: Black Front bumper + aux fan

Guys, I need these parts by February 18-22 so if you have them, please let me know!

Front bumper: Need it to be painted black, has to be ok condition with all tabs in place and no cracks. Mouldings are not required.

Auxiliary fan: Mine is old and probably broken; it is hard to spin even by hand and it has hence melted a fuse in my fusebox which I also need to fix.

I need these for reading week so I can put them in before it gets warm and finish my fan delete mod!!!

You'll need the aux fan for AC as well. Check eBay, Bavauto, or Pelican Parts. Their prices isn't too bad compared to the dealer.

And without engine fan??

That = death in the summer if you let it idle man. I know because the car did overheat on the day I bought it b/c the engine fan got stuck on the shroud.

I then replaced the fan during certification and secured the broken shroud with zipties. Some engine work was done at a later time and only 2/3 zipties were put back. A few days later, bam shroud pops onto the fan again and breaks it. So I decided to take the engine fan off (it was late fall) and I put water wetter in, but I still gotta put in the lower temperature thermostat and make my aux fan work.

What do you mean by rad support assembly? What parts are you including exactly (maybe pictures or links to realoem would be easiest)? Can you vouch the aux fan is functioning?

I'm installing an after market aux fan for my car but I bought an e36 aux fan awhile back thinking I would use a stock one. I haven't tested it, but told it works, if you'd like it be my guest to come test it out if you want it.

Umm sure, if someone will tell me how. What are your reasons for going with aftermarket? reliability?

I'm not sure how to test it my self. My AC and condenser have been removed. Well I suppose it's not hard to test just hook it up to direct power.

The stock Aux fan is reliable so that wasn't my reason, I just wanted something a little bigger that pushed more air through the rad.

I was fine with my stock one for my last e36, just thought I'd go a different route this time around.
