You know, after I got home I thought... the water pump is basically the only thing that was not changed. I wonder how long those usually last? They did a full inspection of the car and didn't say anything about it. I presume it's perfectly fine.

I'd imagine the bigger engine requires a larger radiator? My E320 stays dead center on the temp gauge at all times, without having done any hill climbing (yet) ... seems totally fine to me.
