in the US there was no 318 e46...

its never a bad thing if your temperature gauge is "cold" but strange it would show that on the highway

3. "Oil Change 2600" means you have 2600 km to go before requiring an oil change. The number reflects a mileage countdown.

When you reach the 2600 mark, it will start displaying negative numbers, i.e. "Oil Change -10" which means its 10 km past due for your Oil Change.
