N52 water pump and thermostat

Recommended Posts

Need a pump and thermostat for an N52. (E61 530i N52 2008). Also do I need to use the blue BMW coolant if so where do you get it other than  BMW?

Thanks.

Powerhaus in Thorndon is where I got my coolant from, and yes you need blue (it contains lubricant).

I got my thermo from Amazon (cheapest OEM I could find) and pump from V1 Vehicle parts, but they did put their prices up afterwards. Make sure your get replacement bolts with the pump too.

It's a fun job! My face was blue.

I did a quote for you using FCP who I have used several times - as below

Water Pump, Thermostat, bolt kits for both and shipping to ChCh address.

Price is $US

You need G48 coolant, it doesn't need to be BMW branded, they don't add any magic to the mixture.
