Correct the car will be harder on fuel. However, the failsafe tstat will allow you to get home or to a garage to get it replaced and will not allow your engine to blow because of overheating. I just nticed that you drive a 318. I believe the OE tstat is 198 deg and you wouldn't have the fan mod as there is none. Go to the motorad site to the catalog section and punch in the specs of your car and it will give you part numbers.
