On Z3 with M52TU engine from production 9/98 on, service bulletin 11 03 00 dated May 2000 says if you are experience fluctuating temp gauge - replace the thermostat. Bad one has excess element spring tension. New one has 40% less spring tension. Part number 11531437040 (identified by orange paint dot on housing) was phased into production mid-april 2000.
