Aftermarket 335d temp gauge?

Would this work?

Check Turner Motorsports' website. They have something very similar, if not the same brand. Take note of their disclaimer for the d: the gauge does not show all the functions that it shows on the gassers.

Interesting. The info page says the diesels don't have an engine oil temp sensor. That seems strange.

Yeah... Sure does. $20k VWs provide better driver information than "the Ultimate Driving Machine"? Kinda lame. -Michael

P3 from Turner Motorsport

Well, it claims to be compatible with my 2011 335d but when I go through the motions to buy it... I get told it's not compatible.

Might be worth a call to Turner to clarify whether or not it's really compatible - it seems silly for their website to have such conflicting info.

If it's only coolant temp that is definitely available on the OBD. You would have these options:
1) The P3 one (I don't like the LH mounting, seems not natural to look at and obstructed by my left hand on the steering wheel)
2) That german central vent one. Nice, expensive, and you loose a vent.
3) my Dashdyno by Auterra. Had this for 3 years, a bit modified but now it flips up with the sun glass tray lid. A non reversable mod, I would need a new sun glass holder to restore. It's different, not in line of sight, but with programmable warning lights you can't miss it (I use these mainly for DPF regen)
4) aftermarket one like these. I'd really prefer gauges, but no warning lights in these..

But with any aftermarket devices other then offered on E90post, or the dashdyno I have, be aware of possible battery drain issues. The ODB device you have needs to shut down first. If not, the engine management system will stay alive for 30 minutes pulling 4 Amps. The tell tale is the illuminated starter button. As long as that is on the system will pull 4 Amps. It should be off 30 seconds after closing the door.
