Do the 135i's (convertibles) come with secondary oil coolers?

Sorry, I know this isn't a 1 series forum! But since I'm debating b/w getting a 135 and 335, I'm trying to compare the various things that make one win over the other, and figured there's probably people here who might know the answer.

Do the 135i's come with the secondary oil cooler if you get them with the sports package and 18 inch wheels, like when you order the 335i?

I figured I'd ask here b/c there has been so much discussion about the secondary oil coolers here for 335i's and if I'm thinking of the Dinan route, I want to make sure I cover my bases if I end up getting the 135i.

Thanks people!

I don't think there is/was such a thing as a "secondary oil cooler", even for the 335s with Sports Package. I think it's a rumor!

Let me clarify, and this is where my lack of knowledge is evident, I'm referring to the infamous missing oil cooler, I guess it may not have been a secondary one, and some cars just came with an oil cooler and some didn't then?

Can you pls. shed some light?

I'm talking about this thing that is in the passenger wheel well:

Yes, to my knowledge, 135i's with the sport package come equipped with an oil cooler. I saw several at my dealer that had the oil cooler. And you are correct, it isn't actually a "secondary" oil cooler.

Correct. You either had one, or you didn't. There was no such thing as a secondary oil cooler.
