I think I'll replace the fan and clutch and stat--remove the rad and give it a good cleaning and check everything out--maybe replace the expansion tank as well. Christmas chores ahead it seems. Normally I purchase parts like this from EACtuning--wondering if the stat might be more precise if purchased from the dealership--anyone have info on if this would be the right way to go--or if a stat is a stat as long as it's BMW part
