Thermostat arrow

After replacing the thermostat and thoroughly bleeding the system, cool/warm air continues to blow from the air vents dispute being on max 32 degrees. Something occurred to me, the orientation of the thermostat....
My question is which direction should the arrow be facing?? Some say the 8 o'clock position, others say 12 o'clock position...
Which way is correct??!!

The arrow is supposed to face outward, and straight up (12 o'clock).

Thanks once again lord vader. Good man! Weird thing is the thermostat i replaced the old one with has no arrow, or bleed vent. That's what I get for buying crap I suppose. I've ordered an original bmw 92 degrees thermostat. I'll finish this job when it arrives.

Stuff like the thermostat is important to purchase OEM or OE and not a knockoff. I can usually find OEM parts for pretty decent cost and its worth it for the peace of mind of knowing it will work properly.
