Anyone Ever Purchase New Radiator from BMW?

Since my 71 1600s original radiator was sent off last July to the Big Silicon Garage in the Sky for a three row treatment, never to be seen again, I'm looking for replacement radiator options. My car is a stock, 47K mile, unrestored example, because of this, I'd like to stay true to the original specification radiator.

My question is this: does the current replacement radiator on offer from BMW Classic look exactly like the original radiators? PN: 17 11 1 115 755?

Hi, I have a brand new, unused, unistalled Walloth und Nesch radiator from Germany. I ordered it in December but unfortunately it will not fit my late model 2002 with the shroud. The price shipped to US would be about $338. I can work with you. Let me know if your interested.

Hey there, we have it for $477.70.

And that 1600 is going to my photo gallery right now. It's absolutely stunning!

Is that radiator from http://www.wallothnesch.com the same length as a turbo radiator? It says for up to Turbo, but the stock photo and the description don't give measurement details.

Translating the description, using Google Translate comes out like this:

Water cooler with high performance cooling power - equivalent to the series Working position (is interchangeable with the original cooler 1502-2002tii) - suitable for all models with cooling problems or leistungsg

No mention of turbo in the description. If its turbo length or at least bigger than the E21, I'd be interested (if the original poster passes).

Thanks for your time!

Joshua.

I don't have it here, it's where my car is stored. I can measure it probably on Wednesday. -Raine

From W/N's website:

Howdy,

Awesome - thank you. Feel free to message me outside this thread so it doesn't get the thread too derailed.

I translated the description as well, but measurements would help me compare to my E21 radiator and fitment in my car due to an M42 swap.

Thanks again!

If you got a used 1600 radiator that needs to be rebuilt there is a great shop in Northern IL that did my radiator, heater core, and gas tank. I'm drawing a blank on the name, but if you are interested I can find out.

Is that color Nevada??? It really works with the belt line trim!!!

From what I understand: 17.11.1.115.755 is the later US Radiator that holds the shroud. The radiator that W&N or Jaymic sells does not accomodate the plastic shroud.

 

I bought the Part Number: 02CO.0101 Price: £156.63 from Jaymic 2 years ago. Shroud does not fit, and the mounting brackets are different.

Why do you need a bigger radiator? stock should cool a 1600 just fine in any conditions.
