    Hi Guys
    After reading one of the posts on the 8 Series, I just realised that my DME fan is constantly running , should it be like that ? I have had the car for a year and it has always been the same, thinking about it I am now thinking it should be on a thermal switch maybe ? Any thoughts or ??

    How long have you sat listening to the fan run?

    Longest sitting was about 5hrs ( Spin )
    It runs as soon as you turn on the ignition and doesnt stop until you switch off .
    Not normal is it ?

    I can't say I've ever had any dealings with them, but if it turns off when the ignition is off then I'd not worry about it.
