I just bought a 328i that takes forever to warm up, the engine that is. I have been driving the car for 3 days now and have yet to see the temperature gauge rest in the middle. It sits at about 195 F but will start to creep up towards 250 when I'm cruising on the highway. The car also has a slight rattle noise which I though was common with most inline engines. The car only has 28k miles so I'll take it to the dealership this week to have it looked.

Any suggestions or similar scenarios you guys are familiar with.

Manual says don't wait for it to warm up, just start driving. If you leave it idling over ten mins, eventually the temps will come up. I know cause I had to get the defroster going before I could go anywhere. Sounds pretty usual.
