I have two E46s, the 02 325i (automatic) gauge responds quicker than my 04 325ci (5-speed). The 325i's heater warms really quick, the 325ci takes time and the needle is barely in the center. Any thoughts much appreciated.
Thanks. replace the entire cooling system. that thermostat is shot and so is everything else.

GL!
