    Known facts homie, that's why ER sells a retrofit kit, bob mentioned that his car didn't originally come with an oil cooler & @LostMarine didn't have one on his 335 either (IIRC)

    I just doubled checked:
    • Cars with an '06 Build Date with an MT were sold with an Oil Cooler
    • Cars with an '06 Build Date with an AT were NOT
    • '07 Build with Sports Packages received Oil Coolers
    • '08+ Build, Oil Cooler was a Standard Feature

    Thanks for getting the facts straight. A general statement like all MY07 didn't have an oil cooler could be percieved as misleading to some.

    The main culprit to getting an oil cooler is the sports package. Ive seen many and have test driven a 2009 N54 without the sports package that didn't have an oil cooler. Main reason I thought to check if it didn't have an oil cooler is after a 10 minute test drive the oil temp was pegged at 250f and it couldn't have been hotter than 75f outside. Can't imagine how high the temp would go after beating on it. So long story short if you got the sports package there's a 99% chance you have an oil cooler. When it comes to Xi's you had to get both the sports pack and the 18" wheels to get the cooler.

    I have an 06 build base no oil cooler and have done multiple drag nights in summer heat in 90 degrees or so and or driven pass after pass and have had zero issues. I do know they have had road course track overheating issues but that has been with or without coolers.

    I think if you are doing road courses and want to have little to zero issues an upgrade is a must but for the strip I think one pass and done (limp mode) is very rare/rare due to no oil cooler.

    I believe there was a MY update where they changed the oil temp gauge and added a oil cooler sometime between 2006/2007.

    FYI, when the 335I came out, motortrend did a comparison test between a Manual transmission '07 335I w/oil cooler, against a G37 coupe. At willow springs, the 335I went into limp mode while on it's second lap. It's a very famous old vid. Should be easy to find on youtube. Bottomline: You don't need an oil cooler for a single pass at the drag strip.

    And BTW, I have an '07 335I, that didn't come with an oil cooler. Today, I have 2. Nothing stops you from retrofitting.

    JB2 pump gas/ street tires/ everything else stock down to the paper filter. Car went a .30 on an 18 inch radial and "a little better" on a piggyback I got from Terry.

    uhh no! It had the oil cooler ... Feb build! I complained about heat in the interior namely in the floorboards and BMW retrofitted the oil cooler when the car was new.

    Now, Rearend... thats another story.

    Mine does. Looks like stock BMW parts to me. Quite possible that it came afterwards, mine is a 10/06 build

    Early builds had to have Sport package with something to do with the wheels. My 07 didn't have an oil cooler.

    Mine is def the sport package. But I assumed also that all E92s came with that by default? It was an E92 in the vid, yes?

    This is old memory recollection, but it had something to do with the wheel size or options. I forget if it was 2 or 4dr related, but I know sport was the main thing. There is a sticky on it on e90 i think.

    I am the original owner of the e92 in the vid. It is a sports package car you can see this via the wheels and steering wheel in the vid.

    in 2007 you had to get the sport package and the upgraded sport wheels (162's) to get the oil cooler from what I know on mine.

    I didn't know you could get the sports package without the upgraded wheels; I thought that was part of the "package". What would be the point of getting the upgraded suspension with the bull$#@! wheels/tires? That would be like buying a twin-turbo without a limited slip diff... Oh wait, that's how the Germans roll.

    I routinely answer BMW's 'quasi' questions on Twitter or G+, where they ask 'How can we improve this? We want your suggestions' or something to that effect. I answer with: "How about a limited-slip diff in your non-M cars like every other manufacturer on earth does?"

    I get tons of likes and such, but no official answers from BMW. But yes, I do troll BMW because of the LSD thing.
