200TDi Thermostat Question: can a V8 82C be used?

Hola one and all. I have tried searching so as not to waste anyones time but haven't found any answers.

I have a 200TDi with a 82C thermostat in it which looks like this:
(first image, no round plate at the bottom, just the brass slug looking thing. Works fine, been tested and tested in pot of water with thermometer)

I have seen that all of the 200Tdi stats for sale are 1. 88C and 2. look like this:

(second image, round plate at the bottom)

Any issues with running the 82C one that I have in there or do I need to change it? My temps are running about right, 190-200 on hot days, getting up to 210 up a hill on the freeway(found out the viscous fan wasn't working so new one on order)

Thanks
Chris

You must have the second type. The lower disc is a valve that closes the bypass flow. Without that disc, very little coolant will flow through the radiator.
