Just wanted to address your issue with the thermostat. I just had to do this myself on my 02' 330 and there are a couple of things I found that I can tell you. First, you do have to replace the housing with the thermostat. No way around that....Second, you will have to remove the radiator fan to access all the screws holding the thermostat in place. I started in on the repair not realizing that I needed a special tool to hold the fan clutch in place or it just spins and makes it really hard to loosen up. The tool needed is a #1703 fan clutch tool that BMW makes. I hope this helps you out a bit. It took me about an hour and half to do the repair but if you have experience already it will probably take you even less time.
