Still learning but based on my reading; all of the car sensors are continually broadcasting their values to the CAN network. If you have a device on the network, e.g. ODBII stick and program, you and read those values.

Just b/c there is a sensor (or calculated value) doesn't mean there is an iDrive UI that we can see

I had thought some markets can display an oil temperature gauge instead of the efficiency dynmics we have, in which case I'm surprised someone hasn't coded it on.

UPDATE: There must be an oil sensor in the M2. When I hooked up to the X5 the oil temperature gauge was not an option under Core Data.
