Wow thanks for the feedback here guys. Honestly I gotta admit I was wrong here. I was leaning on the change it until i read some of these posts. I still think if it was my car I probably woulda freaked out and changed it. I have only used bmw oil in my veh so I wouldn't know any different.
After reading some of the posts, I guess I'll tell him he's safe for 10000 kms (this is what I do my oil changes at and I told him to do the same...a i know im anal lol )
Now just to clean this up the guys that are saying they put castrol syntechre using the black bottle oil that says full synthetic and is no long life approved correct?
