That also sounds like symptoms of a clogged radiator core. Has the coolant been flushed and replaced since the car was new?

Also, I guess there is a chance you have the plastic (circa '95 and some '96s) water pump impeller that could have lost a fin or two.

A few weeks ago my '96 M3 started to run hot at idle and cool when under way. My mechanic replaced the fan clutch since this is a common symptom of this problem. So I have a new fan clutch, but still have the same problem??? So far the car hasn't overheated, but will run from the middle of the gauge (normal) to just over the 3/4 mark and then back down...Any ideas on what we should replace next would be appreciated.
