Well to be honest, I wonder how accurate the temperture gauge really is........

My 535i operates @ 250, assuming the gauge is correct.

535i and 550i temp gauge is oil temp, true for 528i as well? And yes, somewhat below mid-point 250 is normal. Mine has been running cooler this winter.

Oil doesn't really start to smoke until somewhere between 350 and 400F, depending on oil type. So 250F should be just fine. Cool before drinking.

Yeah - defo oil temp. If the guage needle is at around the centre position, it's fine.

Agree. 250 is fine, normal operating temp.

Curious - Seems like 250 is the correct normal operating temp however my 535 (dec build) is running at just above to 200 mark.
