  1. Correct Oil Temperature F10 BMW M5

    F10 M5 Discussion
    Hi guys, I've purchased a 2012 BMW M5 last weekend and had to drive it back from south England to my house in central Scotland. The 350 mile journey was mix of A-roads and mostly motorway. I drove at 70mph on the motorway and 60mph on the A-roads. Roads were wet and outside temp was 10c...
  2. Low oil temperature reading

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Hi all, hoping someone can help. I have an unusual issue with my oil temperaures which are showing about 55 degrees when fully warmed up, at idle. I'm monitoring them using the secret menu and the water (KTEMP) is showing 88 degrees - I'd expect the oil to be a few degrees less. I've just...

  4. Sudden High Oil Temperature

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    This has now happened to me on multiple occasions. Not sure exactly when this happens, but I've watched the oil temperature gauge on the dash rise up to 300 and stay there for an unknown amount of time. I'll look back down and it will be back to just under 210. I get no messages, nothing. The...
  5. Upper bounds of normal KTMP

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Okay, I have sifted through threads on the correct KTMP of our vehicles (I am referring to the read-out from instrument cluster test NR-07). I have seen folks complain that their car was not coming up to the suggested 79-degree Celsius threshold, which seems to indicate a failed thermostat in...
  6. Oil Temperature Sensor/Gauge problem

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Oil temp gauge on my 1999 M5 is playing up a bit - when the car is cold, the oil temperature gauge shows maximum , then it goes back to normal after around 1/2 hours of driving. I suspect it is faulty temp sensor. Any idea where is Oil temperature sensor located on M5? Thanks!
  7. Best Temperature for best performance on M5

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    I know this isn't a good question but I wanted to know anyway since its hot as hell down here in houston. What is the best temperature for a 2000 BMW M5 to perform at its best? When I first got the car back in October of 2007, it seemed like it would pull hard, I could do 140 in 4th gear, and it...
