Advanced Auto Parts has a Mobil 1 promotion: 5 qts + filter for $29.99. They had several different varieties including the 0-40w european spec oil.

It appears as long as they enter the promotion code in the register that the oil rings up at $4.30 a qt. I bought 10 qts and a filter for my wife's mdx since M1 does not have BMW cartridge filters.

There is also a $10 rebate for the oil starting in April. You can sign up on Mobil's web site.

i've been using Mobil 1 0W40......but I'm going to switch to Castrol 0W30.........

they're both BMW LL-01...........

The strap wrench on the oil filter cover works great! Huge savings over the OEM filter cover wrench...

Get the oil and the wrench from tichers. I bought the strap also and couldn't keep it from slipping. Took it back. Bavarian has the wrench for $14.95
