Normal oil temp?
2 Attachment(s)
Hey guys I just got a 2004 BMW m3 and it has 42,000 miles. When I turn the at on it says 11,994 miles to oil service. My question is what is the normal temp for the oil and coolant? Tonight in 58 F tem I was having so fun and my oil temp was abit before 210. Is that normal? And the coolant sometimes goes past the middle. Also after I accelerate hard and come to a stop and go again normally it shakes a little. Are these normal?

It is normal When you push it hard it could go up to 260 and still fine

My needle is almost always to the left of center. Seems normal.

Oil and coolant temps should be between the two white dots on the gauges. They will fluctuate depending on ambient temperature and how hard you are driving, but as long as the needle is between the two dots, you're good.
