    Option for an aftermarket coolant tank. I remember seeing some guys posting that their tank exploded for whatever reason. $450 from Southwest Bimmers

  2. Does it accept the level sensor? That would be the only question I'd have.

    Not sure. I planned on giving them a call on Monday to get some more details and pictures.

    Nice, those guys are local to me and I've known them for years. Will swing by Monday if I get a minute and take peek.

    Yeah let me know what you think. I'm currently setting up the coolant reservoir on the drivers side and I don't really like how it's so close to the accessory belt. 450 is a bit of a hike for me but maybe I'll come around lol. Billet is nice but it's so damned expensive
     
  6. Looks really good but, 450 for a coolant tank seems excessive to me even if it does look good.

    Either way, looks awesome +1
     
  7. Yeah it looks really cool but I would never buy one for $450!

  9. Since this is a thing now and csf has aluminum radiators for us, what's go stop someone from running AN fittings and solid line for the upper radiator hose to block and expansion over flow in hard line w/fittings to upper hose? I like to built proof stuff as much as possible and seeing that little break all the time or the tanks popping, it's something I'd rather never deal with again if i didn't have to. Look way cool man, does in come in black?

    You'd have to incorporate the coolant level sensor somehow. Or just delete the code so it doesn't show up on the dash. I still feel like $299 is still too much for a glorified water jug.
     
  11. I don't know man. I'm a huge fan of glorified jugs.

    Haven't had a chance to get by there but I'm sure it's a quality piece. If you want a preventive measure in place and didn't want the bling you can replace the bleed screw with a metal one. Likely the most common rupture point. Can't remember what vendor makes them but they exist

    They should make it with a sensor connection.

    Oh, confirmed no plug? Sucks. I know a billet coolant res exists with the bmw sensor plug but unfortunately it is for an E46 an is shaped like a loaf of bread.

    Any updates?
     
  18. They do not use the electric level sensor but there is a sight glass to show where your coolant is at if you need a refill

    Yes it does come in black
