The oil temperature gauge makes me drive slowly the first 5-7 miles, which is boring. Before, some BMWs didn't have an oil temperature gauge but had a coolant temperature gauge. That heated up quickly, like in 2-3 minutes. It's all in the mind. Before, I was probably driving too fast when the coolant was hot but the oil wasn't yet hot.
Bimmerfest is a wealth of information!
TPMS sensors from BMW are VDO or HUF/Beru, but are not the same even though frequency is the same.
Step by step instructions when a hood release cable needs replacement.
SIB 11 13 15 oil filter housing for the F30 - metal since mid-2013 and can be retrofitted without charge
