It is very cold here in calgary. It is going to stay cold for a couple of weeks. My 95 318 does put out a lot of heat. I can live with it but my Caribean- born wife can not. Any ideas on how to et more interior heat?

Seriously though, does your engine reach operating temperature?
I don't have a graded guage but the guage reads exactly half way between cold and overheated, same as it always has done. This car has never made much heat for the interior.
Get a new thermostat, that doesn't open until 90 degrees celsius... should warm up the car faster. And also check if your car has microfilters for the cabin air intake, if those are clogged, air can't get to the cabin normally.

(Started as a 316... not anymore)
Custom leather interior, custom audio install, custom made bumpers, clear side and corner markers.
Custom exhaust, CAI (also custom =) )
M50B25 transplant, 325 brake system, brembo rotors, ferodo pads.
Coilover kit, 17'' rims, lots of gauges and a few surprises.
Its irritating driving to school at 7 in the morning in 30 degree weather only to have the car warm up once youre in the parking garage.
I suggest lighting small fires in your car until you can save up for an M5.

THis is a long shot, but on my car i was checking the fuses and found fuse number 39 was blown. It's description was somehting to do with A/C & heat. Even though my heat worked fine before, after i replaced that fuse my heat is sooo much hotter. It doubled the heat output somehow
