Is that the thermostat attached to the water pump? Would a MAP controll thermostat fault code indicate a possible problem? I've been delaying getting mine fixed. Maybe I should bring along a couple of frozen burgers in the trunk in case I have an unexpected BBQ.

In 2001 BMW's parts supplier Bosch had some issues with its product and a certain 2001 model 5er was recalled. But this recall has absolutely nothing to do w/ 2000/1998 models.
