Product Information

THE NEXT LEVEL OF TEMPERATURE CONTROL

The N54, N55 and S55 engines are no strangers to oil cooling problems, that’s why we recommend installing the MSL Oil Thermostat, especially for cars that are tuned. The standard oil temperature will reach around 120°C (250°F) with a normal driving style. The MSL Oil Thermostat will open at a lower temperature than the standard oil thermostat (at 85°C / 185°F) and will keep the temperature stable between 95 and 105°C (200 and 220°F), depending on the car model.

Installing the MSL thermostat ensures a cooler oil temperature which will result in more stable performance, but above all this improves the reliability of the engine. It is equipped with a real thermostat, not an always open solution. The oil will still reach the operating temperature at the same time as a stock thermostat.

Installation Instructions

Suitable for F87 M2 Competition Coupe, F80 M3 Sedan, F82 M4 Coupe and F83 M4 Convertible (including Competition, CS and GTS models). Also compatible with F30 ActiveHybrid 3.

  • Quick Installation

The Thermostat is plug-and-play and made out of a solid block of high-grade aluminium at Mosselman's own facility. It is equipped with a real thermostat, not an always open solution. The oil will still reach the operating temperature at the same time as a stock thermostat.

Additionally to the thermostat, Mosselman have oil cooler kits for the 1-Series E8x and the 3-Series E9x. We advise the Oil Cooler Kit for cars that use the full performance of the car during track use. The kits are available as single or twin cooler kits. The single cooler kit replaces the OEM cooler on the right side of the car, the twin kit will add an extra cooler on the left side of the car.

Had the rod bearings on my E92 M3 replaced by SouthernBM, very happy with service and price, highly recommended. Many thanks!

My first dealing with Southern BM was a pleasant one. I had some springs and shocks installed and Sean was a delight to deal with. Knowledgeable, helpful and offered solutions when not everything went to plan. I would happily recommend them.

Andrew Brien @ Southern BM has been helping me for years with my BMWs - he is extremely astute and has a refreshingly customer-first mentality. I trust him to do the best work and only the best!

I Bought my M Performance Brake Kit here and installed today. I got my oil changed. Love the service as always. I only bring my cars to this place eventhough I live in the north side of Melbourne.

First time at Southern BM today and it won't be my last. Efficient and quality service as I'd expected at a much more reasonable price than a BMW Dealer. The only downside, you'll drop your car off and will end up drooling over the m3s and m4s out front!
