BMW E46 Radiators & Accessories

Radiators & Accessories

Radiators are the main part of any BMW E46 cooling system, and its primary function is to ensure exactly the right temperature for the car's engine to operate at maximum potential. A radiator's job is to facilitate the transfer of heat from the cooling liquid to the air blown in from the radiator fan. Installing a bigger, more efficient radiator and fan into your E46 keeps the engine extra cool and further relieves any heat issues whether driving hard around the track or just sitting in everyday traffic.

Mishimoto is our leading brand for radiators and fans, all stocked in a wide range of universal and direct fit applications for your BMW E46.

BMW E46 Induction Kits and Air Filters

Induction Kits and Air Filters

An induction kit or air filter replacement is used to improve engine performance. Firstly by replacing the stock air intake system on your BMW E46 you will get increased acceleration thanks to added horsepower and torque. Secondly, more air in the combustion mixture means the engine uses less fuel to power itself.

Most aftermarket air intakes have more effective filters than the paper OEM ones, making them a popular accessory for BMW E46 owners.

BMW E46 Silicone Hoses

Silicone Hoses

Silicone hoses will definitely deliver value and performance to your BMW E46. Silicone has a superior heat tolerance and is the material of choice for high performance cars.

If your adding extra power to your E46 using a turbo or supercharger you’ll get lots of power but if you don't upgrade your hoses at the same time, you could potentially drive all that extra heat into hoses that aren’t equipped to handle it. OEM hoses aren't designed to accommodate all the extra power and heat so get some silicone hoses that will do the job right and keep your engine running sweet.
