i own a 93 325is. ive been doin some research on the web about the m50 and the e36. so far the car is still virgin and the only thing im goin to do is fix the cooling problem so far i bought cam spanner tool and the other bmw special tools from bavarian auto house. i also ordered a new water pump and head gasket kits with the new head bolts. new thermostat thats about it. i looked pelican for diy. one question for the e36 guru out there. is it mandatory to upgrade the rear subframe with those reinforced plates?

Its not mandatory but its def good practice. The sub frame can rip at any point without those so it would be a good idea, although I've never seen it happen yet. Really up to you if you want to take the chance.
