Not in bimmer, but I put RP in my truck the last change. A tank of gas used to get me about 300 miles, now I'm making 320 or so.

What kinda "sale" price are we talkin about here? It might be cheaper/easier to go with a different/better kind of oil to begin with...

+1.

Have never been a real fan of Redline or RoyalPurple for DD vehicles, hard track days maybe but not long term OCI.

Yea I buy my oil from Walmart. Can get a huge 5 quart jug of Mobil 1 for 24.99. Then two extra quarts of course.


But as for the filter, have you compared the different filters? To me I could care less which filter it is because it's a paper filter anyways. 20 bucks for a Bosch vs. 10 bucks for a Fram when they look and feel identical? I'll save the 10 bucks.
