So further to my previous post about the 330d seeming very slow to warm up, I have accessed the digital engine temperature readout in the OBC display and it turns out that even though the temp gauge looks almost in the middle after 15-20 minutes of running, the engine temp did not exceed 65c, or briefly 66c when I turned the heating off.
So definitely a faulty thermostat! I have now purchased a new one and will fit it soon.
However I was quite surprised that the temp guage displays the engine temperature as normal when in reality it (even on a very hot day) would most likely be no more than 70-75, at least 20 degrees too cold. Do they all do this, or is it possible I may also have a faulty cluster (I have noted it is not the original one for this car)?
Cheers all
