Why did Mr BMW put a thermostat there if not having one solved the oil heat issue. Given some thought, I would not do this mod.
It doesn't actually take much longer to hit 70 degrees, maybe 2 minutes however it does take longer to reach 100 or 105. I personally take it easy on the car until around 95 degrees anyway and as I'm sure most of you on here know that with most cars especially forced induction cars you need to get the oil up to or close to operating temps not only for the longevity of the motor but the turbos also.

An example is my car that loves to hang around on 120 (personally I think it's too hot) on a daily basis and the oil starts to lose it viscosity when it gets too hot, maybe not at 120 but everyday at 120 is not as good as 110 IMO.

I'd probably remove mine in the winter months anyway.

So what power mods are in store for the 335i Edwin?

Maybe a SSP clutch pack upgrade and RB's. We'll have to wait and see if this 335i is worthy.

That's a good thing.

What about the oil temp once you arrived at the "office" where you don't do much but pay people to do them for you?

120c seems to be normal operating temp for mine. Rarely gets above that though, even flogging it in 40+ degree heat.

+1 Oil temp is always around 110-120C even with factory oil cooler.

I probably will be buying one (in Perth), anyone might be interested?

AT's tend to run hotter than MT's. I have done numerous days in tuned 135i and 1M, no issues & below 125 deg.

Look at Advan's oil cooler kit here: http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showt...ight=advan+oil

I recommend the Advan Stage 2. Pete has put together a pretty decent kit that works. Haven't had any oil temp related issues at the track since.
