Optimum engine temp.

Hey guys, what is the optimum driving temp on your M5's. This maybe be normal, but mine does not go above 95 degrees. Which is between 70 and 120 degrees. And my fan stays on all the time after I have stopped. My E92 M3 never used to do that unless on a really hot day.

Same here. I figured it wasn't hot enough out in IL yet to see the temp gauge climb. I figure some spirited driving this spring and summer should see the gauge getting a workout

Here in the UAE, the temperature goes up to 50 degrees Celsius. the m5 temperature can reach upto 110 after hitting full throttle 2 to 3 times. Then it cools down while driving. The fan stays on for like half an hour then it automatically stops. That's what I experienced
