Please tell me or better still us what the difference is between the 2 oils. How is the Dino oil better for break in period better than synth oil and why do you believe BMW doesn't use it at all?

I have owned BMWs from new since 1992 without any break in or further problems using BMW's oil. This issue you have just brought up interests me if what you understand from Dino oil holds true.

Are there conclusive tests carried out on cars to show that Dino oil is better? What about long term use of Dino oil?

I await further information with much anticipation. Thanks very much.
