My 325 was overheating, needed a radiator and water pump. I KNEW about the radiator but put it off until it was so bad that I had to get towed in.
Luckily my head did not crack. They beat SF BMWs price by over $500.
Compared to some shops the place does not look like much, but the car runs great, and the heat works now!
