I got the M24 Oiler cooler, which keeps my oil temperatures cooler with the S/C than I was last year without either ( last year often hit 270F and this year never over 250F).

Now I am in the great Northeast so I am not seeing 100F days when I am running. That might be the big difference between us.

I do agree that the S/C will drive more maintenance ( spark plugs and wear) as I already have 30 tracks days on my 2011. Maybe I should have leased it
Thanks for that info. I've been looking at the M24 cooler. Might be worth the investment.
E92 M3 sold. S2000 acquired. 2016 Cayman GT4 on a boat being delivered.
