i was driving through angeles crest highway
mostly 5-7k rpm in 3rd gear
a few straights at 4th
it's the first time i've really pushed the car and first time seeing temps that high
(only had the car for 1.5 months)

i think water pump is original
car is at 59k miles
don't worry about it?

I guess I should have inquired/clarified further.
If you pretty much stayed above 5k most of the time like that, then yes it's perfectly fine. If you were just driving around the city, then yes, I would be worried.

Taken from page 62 of the Owner's Manual:
"When the engine is at normal operating temperature, the engine oil temperature is between approx. 175F/80C and approx. 250F/120C. If the engine oil temperature is too high, a message appears on the Control Display.

U can download the E90 series M3 Owner's Manual here:

You're welcome.

If still worried, then check the obvious i.e. the radiator coolant level, as well as the oil level. Oh, and check the oil cooler and radiator are not blocked with any leaves and/or other road debris crap.

If you were around 5k-7k majority of the time, no issues then.
My thermostat failed on me tho at 35k miles. So I had that changed, the waterpump was perfectly fine though.

It is But the best part is actually the 100km long stretch between Pemberton and Lillooet. Pemberton is just 30 minutes north of Whistler. The drive from Pemberton to Lillooet are full of switch backs and hill climbs through the mountains, and also some long downhill portion.

I drove the shit out of it this morning on the way to work...heel/toe downshifting, M-button engaged, the whole deal....and it was GLORIOUS! I've never driven a more rewarding/engaging car. As I sit here at work in my cubicle, I can still hear phantom revs and blats from the S65B40. I drive it about once a week now. My other car is...no joke...a Prius lol (wife drives an X5 so it's not all that bad haha).

Regarding the engine oil temp question: Consider replacing the thermostat. A bad one could certainly make the engine run warmer than normal if it doesn't open all the way. Seats looking good.

Out of curiosity, what techniques do you use to correct scratches on the film?
Polish with fast cutting microfiber pad
(Griot's) on a 3" dual action pad
Meguiar's Ultimate Compound until scratch is gone.
Clarify with Boss perfecting cream on an orange 3" correcting foam pad
Meguiar's Ultimate liquid (polymer) wax on a fresh orange foam pad to protect

Exclamation Cannot get BC button to trigger oil change reset

Hi, new to this forum, not sure where to post my question related to oil change I did today. I can't get the BC button to trigger reset option.

I have a 2008 e92 m3 manual transmission. After changing the oil, I followed the multiple videos I watched and got to the service menu on the cluster, I pressed the BC button to look at which item needs service. I scroll down on the stalk to get to red oil change symbol. But when I press on the BC button at the end, it won't trigger a reset. I tried pressed and released and also tried holding the BC button. I also tried pressing the cluster button, and a variation of holding and not holding brake vs clutch the same time. My brake fluid needs to be flushed also. I have not done it yet but when I tried to press the BC button for brake fluid (just to see if the reset option will come on) also no luck.

Not sure if manual and automatic transmission makes a difference because most video are with automatic transmission and most are not m3. There was a 2011 manual m3 reset video but not seeing anything different. Is there something I am missing.

If there is a step I am missing, suggestions will be appreciated.

I'm recalling something about having to have one's foot pressed on the brake pedal while doing this. Check in the manual here:
