M135i - no coolant or oil temp?

I was hoping to find this in iDrive, to replace the MPG display or perhaps as part of the sport display.

Surely, they havent left this out....all the x35i's have this??? Its very important to know when the car has fully warmed up as that equals fun

It is available in a hidden menu you can enable with a rather tedious procedure.

It is the same for all 1ers
You can view it by going though the Idrive's sub menus.

I have been told you can have the guage graphic shown if you have the black back screen.

I have viewed the info for water and Oil but cannot remember the sequence as I am OSeas at present. Back soon

The information is also available on the OBD2-port. If you insert a bluetooth transmitter in this port, you can run water temperature instruments on a mobile phone.

Was you driving it hard or is that just steady driving?

Not very different from my 130i, I have the performance wheel with oil and coolant temp. steady it stays at 105 for the oil and 95 - 100 for coolant, on traffic or spirited driving the oil climb up to 120 and coolant to 105 or so.

Usual driving, I get coolant around 102-110oC and oil from 108 to 120oC. Spirited driving for about 20' has seen the two numbers rising to 116oC and 120oC respectively!!

Can the access to the hidden menu lead to warranty issues with BMW ?

Best regards

I know...that is what I am saying, that in winter my car runs to similar temps. In summer it runs hotter. In general new cars run quite hot compared to what we were used to.
