You think they're aware that bmw v8s use 105 or is he claiming they're 95 and knows?

Ask him if he has anything proving its 95, and not 105 which is what our tstats come in.

SFbay,looking at the two it looks like the tstat itself has the same dimensions ?Can the actual tstats be swapped in the housings?Also I was reading M62 had a 95c and 85c temps?Thanks SFbay for that last pic !

Nope, it doesn't fit at all, I'm using Mazda or smth I found in radiator shop, but still not perfect had to machine to fit inside.
The best solution is to find cheap car parts maker and order like a 100 of them so we get a good price and hassle free

Don't drill holes!!! It's a redneck method to screw the system
Holes won't do anything good, it's not enough for good flow and it will be bubbling making aux to spin when not needed.

SF has already figured it out, he mentioned above it's a mazda tstat but we have to get a machine shop to make it work. I will check around tomorrow and see what a shop around here will charge me.

I have confirmed my cooling issue is the fan. I tested my fan on INPA and it spins up to a mediocre RPM.. I had Wijji make a movie of his which is also not running to great and his fan absolutely SCREAMS compared to mine.

It won't help with lower hose temp though. I'd better spend 600$ on the pipe
