    I use the B&M 24K cooler mounted "dope style" (front passenger side behind the turn signal) going through the stock radiator out to the cooler, and have an accurate Cyburdine digital transmission temperature gauge, with the sending unit located in the NPT port of the transmission housing. I live in a warm climate. Here are the temperature ranges that I experience:

    Cold days (60F or cooler): 125-134F highway, 150F city
    Warm days (85F or warmer): 140-160F highway, 175-185F city

    I change my transmission fluid every 50K, and have had no transmission issues for the life of the car (9.3 years).

    Vehicle is a 01 Z28 A4 with a Y3000.

I live in a warm climate. Here are the temperature ranges that I experience:

    Cold days (60F or cooler): 125-134F highway, 150F city wou will see temps drop significantly I don't exceed 100 during these outside temps.
    Warm days (85F or warmer): 140-160F highway, 175-185F city here also 100 on the expressway little more if stuck in traffic

    I change my transmission fluid every 50K, I'd suggest every 25K and have had no transmission issues for the life of the car (9.3 years).

    Vehicle is a 01 Z28 A4 with a Y3000.

    I was using the rad w/ a cooler then got smart.

    I also use a TCI deep trans. pan & a extrenal oil fliter after cooler before return to trans.

    I'll take the temps that I am running, I believe (IMHO) that running the transmission too cool is also not good. I do not have any information to back that up, only a gut feeling.

    I failed to mention that I also have a 3 Qt. deeper B&M transmission pan.

    With the temperatures we both are running, a 25K fluid change is a little to premature, however 1 lb of prevention is worth a ton of cure.
