Interesting... was it because your aux fan was on with the A/C and forced more air through the radiator? Just curious. I don't have the aux fan anymore though, had to give it up in favor of that big...

That's exactly right, the theory though is that my T-stat is not fully open, which is what I'm trying to verify.

Looking for a junk 540i/740i thermostat

Hi guys/gals,

If you have a used thermostat (part #11531437526) you are about to throw away from a pre-VANOS 540i/740i, please let me know, I'm looking for one.

Forgot to mention, they were also going to replace the valve guides.
