    Hi guys

    Yes and no..... How's that for an answer.
    As an FYI I have always preferred the older style Bosch type, which IMHO last longer. One can also purchase the similar MB resistor for a mid 80's 300e, which has less resistance and will spin the fan on low speed about 20% faster. If you have the older version.

    The Magna one has a VERY poor mounting and the screw heads very often snap off. Both need to be in the airstream for cooling purposes, as they generate a significant amount of heat during use. I have not found a practical way to retrofit an older resistor to a newer style fan. They have different construction.
