I need to replace the thermostat in my 1997 328i, 79k miles. What temperature rating is stock...88 or 92 deg? Is there anything else I should replace for preventative maintenance while im getting parts and having the coolant drained?

Thanks

James

Depending on how much money you wish to spend! But I would check all hoses and possibly the thermostat housing itself. 92 is stock
good luck

I use a 78 degree thermostat. its beautiful. i do, however, live in sunny CALI though. in freezing places you may want to stay a bit hotter.

check the water pump
again, the housing. get the aluminunm type if u dont have it.
