You're fine. An oil temp of 230 - 240 is normal. It's oil, not water. The initial gauge design was poorly centered. Turbo cars with oil coolers don't bring the cooler into use until it exceeds...

The one saving grace of the electric water pump on the N54 is that it continues to run coolant to the turbos after you turn the car off. Far fewer worries than typically seen with a turbo engine...

Deleted. My price basis is a 335, which has different setups for most of those.

Well, transfer case, front diff, and rear diff are the same. $350 - $450 all-in at a dealer.
