Royal Purple 5W40 - Group Buy

Anyone is interested to buy this engine oil together with me? The more we buy, we can lower the shipping cost.

This is a requirement to maintain the engine warranty. Have you read your OM?
So, Renus, YOU ARE BLACKLISTED BY BMWHK FROM ENTERING THEIR SERVICE CENTER!!!

but do you care?!?

Who care? I were using RP for at least half year and I found that it is much better than so-called official engine oil castrol/shell.

So, just 4 of us, any more?

If so I'd love to see the test results. I'm not trying to give you a difficult time, I'm genuinely curious what objective oil sequence testing you conducted to determine that RP is "much better".

BTW, it doesn't matter to me what oil you use as long as you know RP is not approved for your engine. It's your engine so you can pour whatever pain you want into it.

Fine, if you stick with the so-called engine oil for the rest of your life, it is fine to you. In Hong Kong, the dealer is not offered the Castrol engine oild which is appointed as official engine oil, even the cap has engrave with castrol as well, BUT, they offered and even now using Shell's engine oil, in this way, do u think the dealer is also done something wrong to us?

But my question is how did you objectively determined that Royal Purple met BMW's LL-04 oil requirements and/or was "much better" than the BMW approved oils? I suspect you've been duped by Royal Purple ad hype unless you've had BMW conduct the LL-04 oil sequence test, which I doubt you have. It's unfortunate but many enthusiasts get duped by oil ad hype.
How about LL-28 oil requirements? Is it better?
