Hi guys , when I'm driving around town my engine temp is perfect , right in the middle of the gauge, but when I'm on duel carriage ways or up to 60-70ish my temp drops down to the 1/4 mark on the gauge, and the heaters are coldish, there is plenty of water/anti-freeze, the float pops up when I unscrew the cap, is this a thermostat problem, it's is cold up here in Aberdeen , usually about -1 to -5, and with wind speed it would be colder I spos, any help would be great:thumbsup

I drove your E46 this morning to work to Manchester from Wigan, and noticed that the guage was on the first line while at motorway speeds, and up to the middle round town.

I am guessing that I am also suffering from a Thermostat Fault then?

Are there any guides on DIY Thermostat changes about??

I noticed yesterday mine doesn't rise above the first line, but it has been sat at 12 o'clock since I purchased it. Yesterday was the first time I noticed it at this mark.

Is there any harm leaving it (i.e. two months or so) or should I get it fixed urgently?

Mitch
