Alternator failed last week and was changed out. Water cooled so some draining and refill had to be done.
I've been watching the KTMP for a few days and it hovers around 105-108 highway driving (100kph or so) with ambients of -5 to -15.
Sound normal? It seems a little high to me. The idiot gauge points straight up. In stopped traffic, it may actually drop a few degrees but never under 100.
For those wondering how or what is KTMP... http://www.ideaphile.com/bmw/540-obc.html
According to that link, my temps aren't bad, but any other search comes up with people around the mid 90s. Go figure.
