If the temp behaves normally in the car in driving and traffic, I think the pump diagnosis doesn't sound right. I'd expect the car to get very hot if the coolant isn't being assisted!

There's a supercharged Z3M called Boomer, who's owner I've met on a Norfolk'N Good run a while back and I recall talk of another, which we've never tracked down yet.

I'm sure Boomer was featured in a BMW mag a year or two ago.

What about driver trainig, tyres, brakes, braces first though?
