Thermostat from the local stealer should cost about $30.00 and the corresponding O-ring about $3.00. These are "official" BMW NA prices and you shouldn't be paying more than this.

: I just replaced the T-Stat on my 90 735iL. My mechanic said he has seen a lot of them need replacing lately on the 8-12 year old BMWs. The good news is that its easy to replace. The bad news is they cost about $80.00. Good luck
: : My 92 735i warms up ok (1/2 on temp) if I drive slowly in the city. When I speed up on the highway the temp goes down to 1/4. The temp goes back up after driving in the city. Is this normal? Do I have a stuck thermostat or??
