That's very rare indeed. But, if I have to import an M-Technique wagon I may as well import an M5 wagon.:)

Now, if I have an M5 wagon from Europe it may stop me from drooling over Brandon's wagon.

Simple question for you. What is the voltage reading right now at idle? And is the voltage stable or jumping all over?

Broken or not it doesn't matter to your coolant temp. It's not critical to your M52 engine and DME logics. If your were M52TU or M54 then it is critical.

I don't believe the early 97-98 528 model years has the integrated 91 degree PWM fan control tied in to the DME.

So don't bother.

Did you happen to do a Randy's delete?
If not, something ain't right. Could be fan clutch is not working, WP and possibly old and clogged radiator.

How's the 4.8 against the 4.4? I can't stand the look of the rear of an E53. The black plastic piece where the exhaust pipes stick out is so out of place and down right ugly.
