Question 05 x5 engine not reaching correct temp

Hay guys please help me, my 2005 x5 won't reach correct operating temp, (ie 1/2 way) it just gets above the blue 1/4 even after a long drive, I've had the thermostat changed and bled the coolant system and yes the coolant is correct and to level, I've run out of ideas and my local BMW dealership are struggling, can anybody help or experienced this sort of thing before????

05 x5 engine not reaching correct temp

Or bad gauge/ wiring to the guage.... Check the output if the thermostat to see what it reads.

That's an idea, not thought of that, it could be the case as it does work sporadically, what reading am I looking for? Is it resistance or voltage I'm measuring?
