Iím pretty sure you shouldnít use the stock spring with the BMS sport oil cooler valve.. I would email BMS if you donít get a clear answer on here.

I would just leave it in at all times.

I live in the midwest and switched back and forth a few times and then changed to a lower oil temp thermostat. They are all over ebay for about $30. It consistently opens around 228 deg F. Very happy with it, allows quick warm up to turbo temp and then hot enough to boil off any condensation. The temps then stay very steady around 217 deg F.

I have a 535i which has a massive oil cooler. I don't know exactly how the lower temp oil thermostat would perform in a 335i or other.

The screws to the cover will eventually get ruined and you either won't be able to open or close it. I removed mine during colder months but I eventually just left it out because you can't get new screws and I didn't want to get stuck. In the winter I couldn't reach operating temperature with it in so it stayed out.
