Slow down, take a breath, read the manual, and search........... Oh yeah, and change the DIC to the tire pressues, which is actually important. :)

Could have been mine- I traded a 2010 with 7500 miles about a month ago.

I never thought of it at the time, but 190 doesn't seem that far off. I will check to see what mine is running now.

I have a V1...but for what it's worth....when I'm driving hard and doing 5th gear pulls on the AutoBahn....the tranny temp gets upward of 220F+.....

When I'm just cruising...it's a little less than the oil temp.....and around 185-195F.....

Those were excellent. Especially the Bavarian road. What was that Chevy Tahoe doing there?!? Nice exhaust note too. I love that people move to the right and you can trust that they will stay there on the autobahn. Not so much here. Thanks for posting those- serious jealousy.

I think he meant 1080p.

I expected more out of the Autobahn. They look like regular US highway roads. I thought they'd be wider and have like 4-5 lanes.

Yup...1080HD....nice catch....I fixed it...wow...tough crowd....

Here's a thread in the V1 forum w/tons of pics from the 'Ring, a few carshows, Le Mans 24Hr Race last week and a few rally's w/the M-Flight BMW guys over here....a real good bunch......

As far as the AutoBahns being like US highways....not really....the pavement is like ice and they don't have the DOT curve restrictions. For example....there are turns that one should hit realistically at about 65mph....and if you have the hardware.....you can take them at 125-130mph.

Well, yeah, they do look like regular US highways because our highways were modeled on the autobahn. There are two very key differences though- sections with no speed limit and disciplined drivers.

The trans will always be around the temp of the engine coolant, as it runs thru the engine coolant on the side of the radiator. So if you want it to be cooler, you have to put in a lower thermostat and or turn on the fans sooner..

Our handheld programmer we sell does that for you to keep the trans temps near 170-180s.. Makes the trans run cooler.

But the trans is designed for hot 200s. So it isnt that big of a deal.

I was going to mention this, I normally see 140 before I start to get on it even. even my g8 with the 6L80e ran around 180 ish. perfectly fine and normal.

I only see 190* on a really nasty 115* ambient day while misbehaving with the throttle.

To M5 eaters point I also have a 160 stat and fans come on a bit sooner.

Hope you get it sorted.
