    Hi folks, Im pulling my hair out with what seems to me cool running temps. Its an 07 320d with 90k on the clock and when I accessed the hidden menu the operating temp at idle and whilst driving sat between 65-70.

    Hi guys. I've got a problem with the engine operating temperature and I've seen it going up to 130 degrees a few minutes after starting the engine. I've attached a video showing the sudden jump from 80 to 110-120. Any ideas what might cause this? Thanks

    Hi. I have a 2003 330d auto. My drive to work is pretty much all 70 to 80 on a bypass for 25 miles. When it was warmer the temperature gauge would go to the middle, since it has gotten colder it doesn't get up to temp by the time I get to work unless I have to slow down and accelerate a few...

    Ive just had the radiator expansion tank replaced and i've noticed the auxiliary cooling fan seems to stay on after the car is up to temperature.

    This just came up as an MOT failure. Apparantly this light should come on when you start the car. Never noticed one way or the other. No warning light has ever been on. Does this sound like a common simple problem or is this one of those wild goose chases? Just asking before I book it in to BMW...
