Took the car for some highway cruising the other day in 24 degree temps and the oil temp stayed at 95. Even with a few hard pulls it didn't budge. My old 135i would normally sit just over 100 degrees during highway driving in similar conditions.

There's nothing like having a bunnings warehouse within 2 minutes from home.

Agreed.

Whatever the case this is a great mod for this over-tempered N54.

I'm not surprised you guys are experiencing good results with the BMS thermostat. I think the key to lower temps is deleting/replacing the stock thermostat.

If I'm not mistaken the key difference between the advan stage 1 and 2 is the larger setrab core and the addition of an lower temp thermostat. I'm not sure if the larger core is necessary, but the thermostat is what's keeping the oil cool.

I think this BMS thermostat is really good value considering what it offers. I think the ultimate mod would be an option to turn it on and off via canbus, but we can't have it all

All jokes aside, I think all N54's need hood venting for heat dissipation.
