I don't mean those bad weeks/months when check engine light is Fcking with you either or emissions issues etc. But when you feel it is running really well. usually happens in 3-6 month intervals wit bimmer ;(.

Bmw emphasizes the urgent need to seek a professional when your oil temp climbs above that range even once. I cant remember what upp the high end was... I think optimal range is 200-230. My beast won't touch 230 unless something catastrophic goes down. Is this true for others?? I know issues and climate will skew the avg a bit but again when u feel ur car is running well...whats the normal oil temp. 230 is high affff to me but u?

good look!!

That's normal temp for normal weather but not summer. My oil temp be damn near close to 250

My oil starts warming up after about 3 miles of regular driving. When I'm hammering her in sport/manual mode, 250 easy. Never gone higher than that. I do have a stage 2+ tune as well.

My 335i (xDrive, automatic) takes perhaps 15 minutes of driving to reach a stable temp.

When it's freezing outside, and after extended driving, it settles around 230-240F according to the gauge.

On a hot day (100F) I have seen it hit 250F on the gauge. If I had a heavier foot, perhaps it would go even higher, but 250ish is the highest I have ever seen it.

You can access the coolant temp in the “secret menu” without special equipment- just a few button presses. Low risk and easy to do.

There are YouTube videos, but here’s a recap



Three main steps:
1: Access the menu & calculate your unlock code
2: Unlock the hidden menus
3: Select the coolant temp menu



Three basic commands:
- Very Long Press to access the menu
Once inside:
- Short press to move between items inside a category
- Long press to move the selection to the categories, then short presses to move between categories



Part 1: Access the menu & calculate your unlock code

Note: Your unlock code is the last 5 numbers of your VIN added together (insurance card, etc)

1.1 Hold the trip computer button down for about 20 seconds
- Trip odo resets to zero, then returns to the original number (keep holding)
- Yellow triangle is displayed (keep holding)
- Next maintenance is displayed (keep holding)
- 01.___ is displayed ("___" indicates the category menu is selected). Let go at this time
- 01.01 is displayed (selection is now inside the category)
- Your VIN is displayed here

1.2 Add the last 5 digits to for your unlock code



Part 2: Unlock the hidden menus

Once in the "long press" menu (above steps)

2.1 Hold the button down for a few seconds until 01.___ is displayed

2.2 Press the button (short press) until you reach menu 19.___

2.3 Wait a second for LOCK to appear, then "Code 00"

2.4 Press the button (short press) until your unlock code is displayed

2.5 When accepted, you will be returned to the 01.___ category



Part 3: Select the coolant temp menu

3.1 Hold the button down for a few seconds until 01.___ is displayed

3.2 Press the button (short press) until you reach menu 7.___

3.3 Wait for the menu 7. information to be displayed



Notes
- Temperature is in C
- Cannot enter the menu while the car is moving
- Most of the category names are hidden and locked when you first enter the system
- If you access a category name before the unlock procedure, the secret menu will be closed, and you will have to re-do the long press to gain access again (starting over)
- To exit the menu after unlock, turn off the car
- Once you've done this a few times, it's pretty easy to do

Yeah it takes about 15 minutes of light driving or about 10 minutes of moderate to heavy driving for the oil to reach operating temps.

A bit quicker in the summer but yeah it takes some time to warm up in thee winter.

It's normal

Owner's manual says it's better to just drive the car to get it to warm up rather than letting it idle. As for oil temp I'm not sure, I'd start it up and just drive and go easy on it for a while.

Maybe you don't want your oil too hot if it doesn't need to be?
