Thanks for the responses. So does the U.S. Spec vehicles get filled with LL-01 before they are shipped? If so, will mixing the oils (LL-01 and LL-04) cause any issues?

Nevermind. I looked at the link you posted and I think I understand what is going on now. You had a lot of the same questions that I did and it looks like I found the answer. So since we took delivery of our cars in Europe and they will be in Europe for the next couple years, we got the LL-04 fill at the factory, correct?

I assume so, yes.

That said, LL01 would work fine with European gas. LL04 should work as well, if not better. LL04's only an issue in the US and other areas with high sulfur gas. Given that your engine is new, I would not expect you to have to add any oil before the first change. Depends if you are going to wait until 18K miles or do it early...
