Where did you get to with your temp sensor problem?

I have used the Smiths eclipse gauges which also do not work with the standard BMW sender.

The m20 also has a long sender tube which gives me the same issue you have.

The 1/8 NPT sensor with adapter supplied by speedycables provides about 20 mm less length into the thermostat housing than the original even cutting the adapter down as much as possible.

I assumed when they said they did a solution for the m20 it would be the same length (a fool and his money). It means the sensor is buried in a threaded tube in the thermostat housing with only 5 mm of the sensor exposed beyond the thread adapter, speedycables say it will be fine but I remain unconvinced.

Just wondered if you had found a solution.

GOO / Patrick did you have similar issues and how did you sort it.

Any info most appreciated.
