Interesting that there is no coolant "temp" gauge or any way to read it in iDrive that I found. Maybe with coding, not sure. This is the first BMW I've owned without a gauge. Although some BMW coolant temp gauges pointed to the middle and didn't move until something was really wrong, it make me feel better having a gauge. I guess it wasn't really much more useful than a display indicator is today.
