Need help, have problem when put thermostat back

Almost done with the replacement of water pump and thermostat, but when I put the last hose back, it doesn't fit!
I have a 07 335xi, it's slightly different from i, but the procedure could be similar.
I use this http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=784416 as guide

I have done the removal and install the water pump and when I trying to put the new plastic thermostat in.
I cannot put the hose #2 back to the thermostat..Maybe it's because I change the metal thermostat to a plastic thermostat so I need to change the hose as well???
I ordered parts from
http://www.oembimmerparts.com/BMW_E9...7632426kit.htm
Anyone know why? Maybe I should cut the plastic thermostat a little bit to make it fit?

If I recall, you really need to work that hose on. When I did my wp and t-stat, I apparently didn't put the hose on correctly and dumped coolant all over the street on my test drive. It took me a little while to finally get it seated properly. A lot of elbow grease and some silicone lubricant. It takes some effort.
