Let us know, I think you may have it if your car runs dead center on the temp gauge........
Its a lot easier to find then that, if you look in the wheel well of the passenger side you will see the brake cooling duct and you can see the radiator right there thru a plastic grill. No need for getting on your knees with a flashlight, unless you really want to.haha.

Ahh so it's actually exposed? it doesn't sit inside the tunnel?. I definitely don't have it then...

so far, 5 cars total have run "hot" under normal driving... and only one of those had the oil cooler... this still backs up my thought that only some cars have an issue that causes them to run hotter, and this is band-aided by the extra oil cooler, but still not a real fix... and some cars are not prone to overheating at all, cooler or no cooler...

I think it might depend on on the region you live and the temps your car may be exposed to.

The latest I got from the dealer TODAY and this really chaps my ass LOL, I love saying that redneck style.

My wife was told by our dealer mind you(not some shmoe on the corner), BMW north America knows there is a problem and are working on it. Now if this info was given to me 4 days after buying the car why wasn't I disclosed this info during the sale? Am I not entitled to full disclosure of a known problem before dropping 50k on a car?

So I guess they told her they are checking our VIN to see if we have the cooler, I know we don't. My wife seems to think they might not have a cooler to give even if they could give it. Final words was our complaint has been filed and we will be notified as soon as the FIX becomes available by BMW. If your all wondering why I didn't call the dealer? well I don't talk real nice so I have her do it LOL...

My personal thoughts on this: RUN'EM while you Got'em because if they admit theres a problem no need to worry about warranty denials on motor failures............

It is post #17 in the "Does the automatic 335 have one oil cooler?" thread.

Where do I look?? How do I tell?? I'm not an engine guru but I do want to know...though car has 1600 miles and I've never seen temps go near the high side.
Your passenger side front grill will be open in 2 halves, one side for a brake cooling duct and the other for you oil cooler

And, I stay right around 245-250 through all driving types at the same ambeint temp outside.

Yeah, after 15-20 min of driving I am sitting at 230 - 240 F. But after 30 minutes of occasional hard throttle I am close to 250.

Cliffj,
the short version is:
manual with sport package = factory oil cooler
auto with sport package = some have cooler
others = no cooler
Thank you DrM for the earlier. I thought this site was loosing it's character. Please, someone ask about thier cars normal operating oil temp.
