Changed it myself in the garage and it was super easy. Car only had miles on it, but was still running the original oil from a year ago when I took delivery of the car.
The "perform engine oil service" indicator just came on a couple of weeks ago, obviously due to the time that had gone by rather than actual mileage. I just don't drive it much Now I'm wondering if this is providing enough protection under track conditions, but I suppose I have no reason to doubt BMW knows what is best for their own engines.
If they've managed to keep oil temp this under control even under track conditions, what advantage would running a thicker oil really have? I'm thinking none What say you guys?

The dealer oil is made of polymer chains from oil from the earth which are broken down and then assembled to create the "synthetic" oil.
LiquiMoly is synthesized from man-made polymers. Second Lieutenant. Appreciate the insight. Appreciate 1. CP I am new to the BMW car thing. Came from BMW 2 wheel machines. But this oil thing is very confusing to an old garage mechanic who has always changed my own oil. Car is only driven in season and stored for dec-mar. I also live miles from a BMW dealer. So is there any oil good old Walmart may sell that would be good enough for this car? I have always used Mobil One in about alll machines and now I have a machine that cant use that.
Kind of Crazy in my view. Thanks for your input I like to learn. Originally Posted by Hap. Lieutenant Colonel. No true hard data on oils, but I avoid W'mart for anything that requires true quality. They specifically work with suppliers to provide cheaper alternatives, making adjustments at the factory. Would not want that for my oil, as there is too much you can mess with in terms of additives that I'd never know to even ask about.
And it isn't that expensive if you order kits ahead from the online vendors. Ok fair enough I can order the kit and just use bmw oil and filter.
I was asking about Walmart just as a local place to buy a oil that would work. Not insisting I buy it there. Thanks Hap. If your Walmart stocks Castrol 0w European Formula that will work fine in our cars. I am guessing anything that states Europe on label is going to meet specs? More options Hap.
Hap et al, I agree with folks who are not Walmart fans; however, if you do your own oil changes, you cannot beat their prices on quality motor oil. As has been noted previously, they also sell Mobil 1 in a wide range of viscosities as well; however, Mobil 1 lost their BMW approval a few years back.
I still use it but for those of you who insist on BMW approved fluids, Mobil 1 no longer qualifies I change my oil every 10 weeks or so. If I was still living in Upstate NY, I would likely have stuck with Mobil 1 0W for the low temperature viscosity benefits with the turbocharged engine. Connecticut does not have the F mornings I experienced there so 5W is fine. My two cents Private First Class. Originally Posted by ScottSinger. Brigadier General. Originally Posted by seansurfn2.

Since WMrt is a big volume buyer, suppliers can set up an entirely separate production line, or divert from the regular line - basically cut corners at the factory, then put it in the same packaging.
Perhaps that is how Mobil 1 lost their cert, but I don't have specifics. Nobody would, because this falls under trade secrets and they don't have to disclose you might find diffs on the tech sheets, but only if ingredients were fully deleted. You can look this up, it isn't really secret but it also isn't widely publicized. I'm not willing to risk a motor by saving a few bucks. Last edited by dradernh; at AM..

You can buy the same oil from Amazon or dozens of other establishments. It is exactly the same, no difference. An oil analysis can easily prove this. I'll save my money, thanks. All times are GMT The time now is PM. Mark Forums Read.
