This is NOT a tie-in as defined by the MM Act. You can use ANY BMW LL-01 approved oil of the proper viscosity. Your warranty however can be voided if you use a NON BMW LL-01 approved oil of the proper viscosity.

Turkeybaster continuously posts half-truths and technically incorrect oil information because he does not understand the subject matter. This false information can cost you your engine warranty and even engine damage so PLEASE read your OM so that you are an informed BMW owner and know your warranty obligations.
