Here is a photo of the stat installed in our 2013 F30 335. It's been in there for a few thousand miles without issue.

Question, do you need to drain oil to pop this cover of without oil spilling? Or is there no oil in that chamber unless the tstat is at operating temps?

Yes we're working on it. Sent out a new tstat housing and waiting for the old one to get back so we can get to work.

Can't wait till I open up mine, 09/2006 built. Just picked up my car from recent wreck, and about 55 outside, temp went up to 240, which is ok to me, but if that can stay at around 210-220 all the way thru commute, it's super!

I should be knocking this out this week. Worked 100+ hours last week and never saw the daylight to do it. Gaskets finally came in and I'm ready.
Sorry for the delay.

Same thing happened to me on a e90 335i by hand it would still have the gap but slowly tightened the screws alternating them and it got in all the way. Could be the case of a bit to thick coating.

So far no leaks that I can see. On a 77f rainy day it hits 220f when normally it would be at 230-240f with the stat. Not much of a change but at least it's something.

On 2007 models? I know we have the housing but not sure where we are on machining for the stat for it. Will update the thread when I have a firm date though.

I tried to put the pin the shorter side first. Then the disc portion of the pin sealed the mid section of the inner housing b/w the inlet and outlet holes completely. But the longer end was simply too long to close the housing cap. In this case, can I simply grind or cut the pin to make it shorter?

Jason, my buddy has a ER sport cooler and the thermostat looks like #2 but the rod is recessed in the top (not sticking out) and the housing had a pretruding part that would meet up with recesses rod and when BMS thermostat is installed it is really hard to get housing back on.

That photo is a little confusing. The #2 stat looks like the attached pic when you take it out of a cold car. Those were taken out of a warmer car.

Bellow is an update picture of the #2 thermostat.

I am really considering modifying the bms thermostat pin by shortening the longer end so that I can close the housing cap. My housing snugly fits the bms pin's disc portion right in the middle between the inlet and outlet of the oil passage only if I put the shorter end in first. What do you think Jason?
I have a 09/2006 built e92 with the factory oil cooler.

You can grind a little off of the top until it fits. Your lid is tapered more than normal on the inside. Try it but don't take off too much.
