Overheating - 2007 630i

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Posting on behalf of my mate.  The car has about 80k on the clock and has started to overheat after a short journey.


Initial diagnosis points towards thermostat.   The car is being looked at today to find out exactly which component is faulty.  


There are, I believe, 2 stats, a mechanical one and an electronic one.  He's been quoted approx £100 for the mechanical one and <eeek> about £500 for the electronic one (BWM dealer).  The latter seems a tad expensive.  Do the prices seem about right to all you knowegeable types?








Apparently it's the electric water pimp?  And that's the £500 unit.
