F30 and oil cooler

Did we get an oil cooler, I can't seem to find any information if the F30's did.

I know I read a thread where they had found the oil cooler and taken pics of it but that was months ago. No clue where it is or where that thread is.

Found it, passenger side near the fog Light in US spec cars.. I'm assuming I won't need an upgraded one then for a tune?

specific to 335, not sure of other variant...

US market M-sport, seems to have 2 additional radiator on the side, behind where the fog light should be, one is confirmed oil cooler, the other seems to be just additional radiator.

Rest of world m-sport/sport/etc - oil cooler on the passenger side (mine is RHD)...

realoem will show the part number & location

My 2013 US LHD 2013 Sportline 335i has a cooler on passenger side behind fog light. On the driver's side is a duct directing air to somewhere......

So did anyone ever confirm if there are 2 oil coolers for the M Sport variant in the US, or is it one on the passenger side, and that's it???

This is desperately needed for our cars...

Oil cooler on passenger side, additional engine coolant radiator on right side (with its own fan, which had to be replaced on my car at about 3500 miles).

Great image! I wonder if it's the same for our N55's, I believe that picture is from the previous generation where the air intake is positioned differently, no?
