Bimmerbill - thanks for the reply. :clap2
That is what I did and all seems well but I read in the TIS about a coolant presure tool and was not sure if I had to use it or 'could' use it.

I live in upstate New York and today it barely made it above +1 and my temp reading held steady in the middle of the guage. The summer before last I was in Boston when it was 100+ and my temp reading was in the middle of the guage. My recomendation is to repace the faulty thermostat as soon as possible because the fact that it is not working properly is concerning. It is true that a cool engine is not as bad as an overheated one but failure to replace it could cause excessive wear otherwise why would we need them.... right?
Does your local BMWCCA have anyone with the tools and the talent?
