The thing that bothers me more on the 128i/328i is the absence of any temperature gauge. While I remember that the water temp gauge on my '99 E46 was so heavily buffered as to be irtually an idiot light, it did give the driver a sense of when the motor was up to operating temperature. The work around for the 128i is to periodically check the oil level through the OBC and when a reading is given, the engine is warm enough to have some fun.

Enjoy your new 128i!

good info to know here
