I'm about 300km away from 140k. No signs of heating though.

Wonder when it'll give up Hammerhead

that's just the thing. there were no signs at all. was still driving, and just got a message saying temp is high, then few seconds after all power was lost with engine overheated message so i pulled over immediately. Thumbdown

RE: N54 waterpump and thermostat
Is goldwagen and incomex selling the same brand?

I heard that BMW moved over to a new company on their latest revision water pumps which are said to be stronger.

Just cant remember what manufacturers they were

Highly recommend you look at an aftermarket warranty BudThumbs

It covers quite a large portion of these big ticket items...from my experience
