A/S = all-season tires. Non-staggered means that the front and rear tires are the same size / width.

OK, so at a guess you have 17" A/S tires all the way around, non-staggered. Those would delete the high speed option, and yank the cooler with it.

Huh, you don't. That's interesting. You said it's a coupe, and I'm assuming RWD, not xDrive. Did you buy it new or used?

I still wouldn't worry about it. If you're not tracking it, you...

If it's a 2011 335i coupe, it has the oil cooler if it isn't an xDrive. If it has the vents in the wheel well, it has an oil cooler. Are you sure you know what you're looking for regarding the...

For me, every 7,500 miles. The CBS system in my car tends to ask for it every 18,000 - 20,000 miles. That's too long for my tastes.

The Mann Filter site doesn't list an 816. I use the 816X in my 335i, and you use the same in a 328i. My guess is that the 816 is a lazy entry for the 816X. Go with the 816X.
