My old thermostat was sticking and the car was running hot (100-105). So I replaced it with a new OE from Behr, but I believe the part is incorrect 116 200 03 15. This is the higher temp one I think that functions at min 84 to max 99 degrees C. I believe I need the 80-94 degree one, do not have my parts cd handy at the momment. Could some one check if I do indeed have the wrong thermostat. Car is staying in those ranges 84-99 but I think I should use the correct thermostat. Just looking for confirmation.
