Looking for a junk 540i thermostat

Junk 540? Just look for one that has been riced out. It will be a parts car before you can blink your eye.

Look at the window sticker that came with your car. At least if you bought it new. If not there are some giveaways that will tell you if it a premium car or not.

Problem with smoke coming from below engine

It's coming from your valve cover, and it's dripping on the exhausts at the manifold heat shields. Replace valve cover gasket. Use one from the dealership. Buy grommets too.

They came on my 5 series. Never came on an E46. Can't see trying to make the 46 into a 39. Two completely different cars.
