330d low coolant temp, review.

Hi everyone, well since having my 330d it's been poor on fuel in my opinion. So checked coolant temp, would barely go above 77c so I realised there is a fault. Obviously the main thermostat is a bit more involved to do. So I found a egr valve thermostat made by mahle!
Ordered it and it came at 8 this morning, by 8:50 it was fitted and done! Well just before I got to work it was at 77-78c, well since fitting the new stat it's now up to 80-82c. Not been on a decent drive yet. Might still need a main stat but I'm making progress!
While the old stat was off I blow through the stat and it was straight through the stat had not closed so it was definitely faulty.

Just thought I would share that info with you, even though its been covered.
