I think-and this is just a feeling-that there might be something wrong with his car. Just maybe.

An M52tu/M54/M56 usually fails in the open position. They still fail in the closed position on some occasions, and this is an S54 anyway.

But he/she/it said that BMW engineered them that way, so it shouldn't matter the engine. It must be something else...nope, no way a tstat can fail without being fully open

If one posts, the other follows soon after. They're not helping their case with this confusion, lol.
