The thermostat on VW 4-cyliner water-cooled engines has been in the same place since the 1980s. (That is because the engine has not changed much.. it is basically the same engine-block) When you have a good engine deesign, there is no need to change it much.
Since this is a "bypass" type of cooling system , the thermostat is where the LOWER radiator hose connects to the engine-side.
