So I just got the PO128 code Coolant Thermostat Fault code, from what I have read it looks like the thermostat has failed open and needs to be replaced. What brand are you all using? OEM or aftermarket? Where are you all buying the parts from?

I did my water pump/therm at the BMW Dealership and told once done you get a lifetime warranty on parts/labor since the pumps fail every 50k to 60k miles.

I paid $1400 but most other shops were looking to charge me $800+ and there is no way I'm DIYing that without a hydraulic lift.

Hmm, I wonder if that is just for the 335. I paid $1300 a couple years ago ('07 328xi) at a good independent shop. But, if I'd known I'd get a lifetime warranty for $100 more, I'd have absolutely taken it to a dealer. Sounds like a pretty good deal.

For what it's worth, mine was the original pump/thermostat at 177k miles when I bought the car, and since it had thrown a couple codes, I decided I didn't want to risk the Vancouver BC to Prince George BC run (where I lived at the time) just in case those codes meant it would fail soon... but it seemed fine, and I even drove up through Whistler and around town for a couple days until my appointment.
