I LOVE these cars, this specific model- do you want to sell it? do you want to trade- (ok calming down now) it should be on the front of the engine where the hose leaves the engine and goes into the radiator- this lets the engine heat up and the heater start working before it goes into the radiator and cools off- or is it a remote thermostat? I can't remember- anyway, what's the problem? are you SURE that's what's wrong?


ps, that photo is NOT the 7 series- it is an old Bavaria- fyi


Thankyou so much. I did change the thermastat and it is running right in the middle once again. It is such a smooth riding comfortable car that I am really grateful that I bought this car. I amk going to send you a picture of my car and would sell if the price was right or trade for a decent pick up truck. I am located in Northern Calif by the way.


That car is not mine. My car is a 1989 BMW 735IL. I am going to attach a picture.
