    As some inhabitants of that other BMW webpage might know, my F went pop in Morocco and limped back to Spain where I left it to the RAC. Oil temp went mad (160 degrees after 10 minutes at 50 mph, water light on). Having had the thing in bits, I'm honestly stumped: The thermostat works, a whole...
