Will this sort of thing work on my 128i?

Interested in adding oil pressure/temp gauges - anyone ever used one of these? Any better suggestions?

Thanks

You can buy a digital box that mounts atop of your steering wheel(or anyplace you really want to mount it) and plugs into the OBD-II port, giving you some of this info. Not sure about oil pressure... but oil temp, water temps and a bunch of other stuff.

There is even a WiFi plug/adapter that plugs into your OBD-II port and then you use an app with your iPhone to see this data.

I looked into the scangauge II a while back but their customer support couldn't seem to tell me for sure what readouts I'd get on an e82. I'd be interested to know if anyone's had good success with this (on a 128i) or what other options are out there for an obd II setup.

The gauge pod is nice but I haven't yet found an oil distribution block I'd be comfortable using.

Sangauge works, I have one, but it does not show oil pressure or oil temp, it will give you water temp though.

Yes! That was the device I was thinking about.

Hmm, seems pricey just to get water temp info... Though it'd be nice to know that my car is warmed up.
