Yep. I'm pretty sure as divined above, no light for high just a message. That said I'm confident that it was light on the temp dial that got wife's attention to take pic of dash and send it

You can ask...

I haven't touched it. I don't worry about the temp as much on the 3.0d. The biggest issue with the 3.0d is running too cold, not too hot - and too cold is easily seen on the factory gauge settings.

But if I was to goof with it, I'd go with something similar to the M54 values as in this thread, just for slightly more clarity on the normal variations when running. And I'd set the over temp alarm at 110DegC.

Since replacing my thermostat a while back, I occasionally monitor the operating temp via the menu #7 and it sits bang on 88DegC. most of the time, climbing as high as 95DegC. when towing a trailer with 2-3cubeM of firewood up steep hills. Never seen it higher than that...

Fair enough;
I was thinking along similar lines that itd be unnecessary;

But the weather reached over 40 degrees Celsius here today,
and I suspect my X5 was running hotter than normal ,
but my gauge never moved past dead centre, and I would prefer to know easily if my motor was running a bit hot as it sounded different, a higher pitch that disappeared when it cooled down.

I think I may also change my speedo to show true speed if I can figure that out...

Yeah, I thought 458F might be a tad high...

If there are short periods of concern - like hot Aussie days! - then you can just pull up hidden menu #7 and monitor the actual KTMP value. Would be interesting to see how high it gets in those conditions.

're. The Speedo - that's a bit tricky as the actual error varies with tyre wear....

On my car the computer knows the actual speed as shown when using code reader or hidden menu or simply reset the trip computer the average mph will show 3-4 mph less than the speedo. This is the same on both our 2001 3.0

The speedometer reads slightly higher than true speed in all countries except Japan.

It's not slight it's quite a bit. Motorcycles even worse. That said I had my buddy do the same on his X5 yesterday and his was within 1/2 mph at 65
