good you included the VIN. It showed that they do have some configuration control at BMW. Sometimes I have second thoughts about that. I am now waiting for a clamp for a muffler for a 316i (wife's car)for 2 weeks!
P/N 11531729720 addtl. info 85CEL (this should be 85°C) converts to 185°F.
Thermostat is used on E31/E32/E34/E38 (V8 only)
So should be easily available.
