    Hi guys!

    I'm looking to change the heat exchanger and the oil cooler.

    I have doubts between these two brands, can you help me?

    Any experience with these brands? Any other recommendations?

    Thanks in advance, take care.

    No experience here!

    I personally prefer the CSF oil cooler setup, given it fits in the most OEM manner.

    However, bear in mind that without the oil bypass mod done, the cooler will never be fully utilised even on a factory cooler.

    Ah sorry, I thought you were talking about the E46 M3, not the F80!

    E46s have a thermostat which basically never gives the oil cooler the full flow of oil, thus the cooler is never fully utilised.
