My oil temp in the morning is going up to about 180 and I take a longer route home and it gets to about 200. At what temp will it boil off water and contaminants? Thanks.

I agree, go for a 335i. I was going to buy a 328 but once I drove the 335i there was no turning back. The car still thrills me every time I drive it!
