Liqui Moly 5w - 40 LL01

Gents i have a 2010 320d that has no DPF, i was informed the LL04 that i presently use for the diesel is related to vehicles with the DPF.

At my location Castrol is available but i was looking at options. Just checking if it would be possible to use the Liqui Moly 5w - 40 LL01 in my particular engine. FYI my car is not my daily driver so it will never exceed over 6k-km per year.

Yes, it sounds like LL-01 is fine since LL-04 is specifically related to the DPF as noted here:

Edit: also, look at the last 2 pages in that PDF. That might answer questions for your specific engine.

Thanks for info provided. The supplier informed me they can also get the following 5w-30 ACEA C3 ; API SN ; API CF ; BMW Longlife-04.

But i would prefer to use the 5w-40 due to the high temp at my location.

I'd stick with LL04, more suited to carry contaminants that diesel engine throws at it, it's not only about dpf
