If you trade, you're taking a risk. So you have to decide if owning the BMW will bring you more joy than your VW even if it ends up costing you more to get it into shape and maintain it.

I believe the heater control valve is closed when powered. Try measuring the voltage there under operating conditions.

I measured the ones the dealer installed on my e46 and they are 20" and 23"

Repair not worth it on these disposable radiators.
They last quite a while if you keep the coolant balanced. Then replace.

It's supposed to shut down all after this time to protect the battery.

Yes, servo is the power brake unit.

Our US e46 uses manifold vacuum to power the boost.
Some four cylinder euro e46's have a separate vacuum pump. Maybe not enough vacuum from a four cylinder?

There is no such animal.
Only metal pulleys are aftermarket unless you found something never mentioned on any forum before.
URO and UCC are two of them.
I have the UCC under-drive Al pulley.

Horrible experiences with aftermarket axles. You don't want to go there. If this wasn't so, we'd all buy the way cheaper version.

Replacing just one side is fine.
