LCI2 - oil temp gauge - FINALLY !!!

Interesting - M2 has coolant temp....



....whereas Mx40i LCI2 has oil temp gauge.



I wonder if this LCI2 oil temp gauge can be retrofitted to older cars.....

I've seen somewhere that it could be coded to cars with B coded modular engine family.

That would be great if it could be coded to older cars.
I bought a P3 gauge, mostly to see oil temp.

I went with the M Performance wheel with the LED display for the temp gauges

I installed my P3 gauge last night. I was suprised how quickly these cars warm up and how hot they run, that's probably why they didn't put in a gauage.

It's winter here (around 12c this morning) and oil was 70c within a few minutes and settled around 105c.

I suspect concern about how owners might read an oil temp gauge vs a coolant temp gauge is one of the reasons BMW has been reticent on this. I have both on another car, which runs "cool"; the coolant typically sits around 75-85C (it has a 75C thermostat) and the thermo fan kicks in at 85C. At a coolant temp of 85C u dear load, oil temperature is typically around 120C. This can be too hot for certain low grade oils but a high performance oil such as Motul easily copes with temps >150C (which I've never seen!)
