This is a NY car temp wise. Gauge runs about 200 to 210 and takes about 10 to 15 min to reach this. What are you experiencing ?

I'm in DC area, my 535i temp gauge shows similar temps in cold weather. Doesn't reach the 250 degree mid-point. Remember, this is an oil temp gauge, oil takes a lot longer to reach operating temps than coolant.

In retrospect i drove my e60 much much too hard too soon. What a welcome addition to the new information cluster. 15-20 minutes seems about right.

I have a 535i and the temp guage is for oil only.

I live in southern Florida, but we have had several cold (45 F) mornings in the last several weeks. The temp gauge will begin to show normal operating temperature after about 15 minutes of driving, that is, after 5-6 miles of my morning commute (city driving, obviously).
