View Full Version : 535 Oil Cooler?

does anyone know for sure if ALL 535s will have this feature? For those not aware, there is quite a bit of discussion on the E9x board (and on other forums) about this issue, brought about in part because of an Edmunds test of the new G37 vs. a 335 in which the 335 overheated and went into "limp home" mode. Some investigation revealed that apparently, BMW chose not to put oil coolers on some 335 models destined for the U.S. and Canada (not clear if the Edmunds test car had one or not), setting off a flurry of emails/complaints to BMWNA. Supposedly, BMW made a production change to add oil coolers to SOME 335s (details on this are being debated). Main issue is the overall reliability and longevity of the engine. Hopefully, BMW will insure that the 535s are well cooled, but this is an issue worth watching.

Well, if they are in fact now equipping 335s with an oil cooler, then I think one could safely deduce that 535s will be equipped with oil coolers as well...
