Another No Heat Post!!!

Looking at buying a 1997 328is , I happen to be car savy. But I'd love to have anyones input with brainstorming this one!
The guy selling the car says he replaced the intake gaskets, and now is not getting any heat, unless he's going 100k down the highway. It does not over heat. he says there's no antifreeze in the oil, or burning out of the exhaust. I'm thinking t- stat, or air locked? what are all of your thoughts?

Thanks in advance!!

My three guesses, in order -- low coolant, faulty thermostat, and faulty water pump. It could easily be all three.
