I have the infrared gun. I wish to know the actual thermometer readings according to published data or something similar...which I can't seem to find. If I do find it somewhere else, I'll post it up here for sure.

And from the second part of your statement, you seem to suggest that no overheat alarm covers all situations ? I know for sure that 97C should not cause a boilover situation. In fact it might well be the normal temperature. The aux fan's coolant sensor is rated at 90c/99c. Are the engine temp environments different, even across different BMWs ?
