False. You talk about and explain NPSHA(strangely similar to how engineering toolbox and wikipedia do), but you don't calculate it or even estimate it in the case of an E46, or any car for that matter, so I'm not sure how you come to that conclusion. Further disproving your claim, there are many examples of water cavitating at room temperature. Just look on youtube...
