Update: adapters for the oil pressure sender installation are available from the BigCoupe member Jordanmilos now.

This is a great article, at least worthy of a 'well done sir!' comment, so I thought I'd add mine.

Its not something that I think I'd on my 84 UK spec 635csi, but for anyone that wants to it is packed with info.

Well done! 8)

One correction (from personal experience): I would not recommend to use 1/8" NPT thread plug, when I did, it was leaking after installation like hell, I ended up with retapping it for 10 mm thread and using 10 mm bolt with crush washer.

Beside this, the rest is worked out perfect, I placed the gauges instead of ashtray:

Great thread!! I Love bimmers, but the lack of those three gauges is perhaps the most annoying thing I find. If given a choice, most likely the main bone that I would pick on orwith BMW. Idiot lights just don't do it on a car with that stature. :cry:

Not sure I agree. It's stature is that it was a high-tech luxury sports coupe. Why have gauges when you can have check lights?

Just thought I'd let anybody finding this thread know that the url doesn't work anymore but Google found the new one for me:
