Nice job on reviving a 2008 thread

Anyway, many engine performance parameters get their data from the temperature and position of the the thermostat. Your quote for the job is ridiculous, though- It's a 30 minute job with a $55 part:

Remove the forward lower pan, drain the radiator, remove the air intake, disconnect the sensor wire and hose clip, remove the three screws and replace. Refill with a 50/50 mix of distilled water and BMW (or Zerex G-05) coolant, run with the cap off and heater on for a few minutes to bleed, and you're done.
