[/QUOTE]Bearings that are worn but not making noise will hold pressure fine above idle speed. You will only get the low oil pressure when the oil is hot and you are at idle.

Sounds like main crankshaft bearings. Since it isn't making noise you may be able to get away with just replacing them. My guess is that will be about $2,500 here in the US. New engine would be...

Does it only come on when at idle when fully warmed up and go off above idle? If so, that would indicate bad main bearings (assuming your sensors are OK) and that is a big deal. That is what it...

There are two metal coolant lines (1 to each turbo) and 2 metal oil lines. The price doesn't sound bad.

That is also where a leak in the water pump would come out. The pump is covered by the shield under the car on the passenger side of the car.

Just go to the Autozone or whatever discount parts place is near you. A gallon of windshield washer will run about $2. If your sensor says you are low, your 335 will take the full gallon.

Yellow/bright green is not BMW coolant (Its blue) unless they have put UV dye in it for leak detection. That will turn it yellow.

Even if you get it fit (physically), the first time you hit the gas, the knock sensors will go nuts and put you in limp mode. This is a horrible idea.

Robin is correct. If you let it sit a few minutes oil will drain from the housing down into the crankcase, just as if you had drained the oil.

Not necessarily. Scrape the underside of the Oil Filter Housing with your fingernail. If there is a tar-like substance there, the OFHG is leaking.

That screw is an overflow screw used when you are filling and bleeding the system. Replace with OEM screw. Stick with BMW coolant. You can get it at any dealer for less than $25.
