Motul v300 power 5w-40

Hey guys:

I don't post much on here but just wanted to let you all know that the oil mentioned above is simply amazing (IMO ). I used it for a while and loved it and then BMW decided to change my oil when I took it in for service and I decided to let bmw used their own oil for a few changes since I didn't have to pay for it... But since I've upgraded to the Cobb and my car will be going fbo in a few days I decided to change back to the motul oil mention above. Right now I have the stage 1 aggressive stock throttle with fmic... The car simply feels better, idles quieter, feels more responsive and just something about the motul compared ( compared to BMW) that just gives a really good driving experience. The motul is ridiculously expensive but if u want the best ( IMO).. Then you gotta pay for it.

Anyway- if anyone is on the fence about oils to use.. Def recommend it. Later all.

Drive safe.

Shawn

Not so sure changing the brand of oil will make as much of a noticeable different as you are stating it is making. I can see many other factors effecting your idle, how it feels etc..but not from changing to this oil. Unless there are quantitative results that are stated here.. I just don't believe it. Nonetheless I've heard good things about the Motul oil. I could be wrong.

Motul is among the best.

I have only good experiences with Motul. And yes, your idle, your engine during acceleration, eeverything feels smoother.

I use Motul oils in my cars:

- F10 M5: Motul 300W Power 5W40
- E92 335i: Motul 300W Power 5W40
- E93 M3: Motul 300W Race 15W50
- F20 116i: Motul X-Cess 5W40
- F20 125D: Motul 8100 X-Clean C3 5W40 (and will use Motul 300W Power 5W40, once i get rid of the DPF).

When i first change the oil in my F10 M5 (at 3.000 km, after break-in period), my engineer did not beleive his ears. Engine was much-much smoother.

Regarding the oil change intervall:

- Motul 300W any grade: 5.000 km - 8.000 km (normal and spirited drive, not track drive)
- Motul X-Cess 5W40, Motul 8100 X-Clean C3: 10.000 km ((normal and spirited drive, not track drive)

I am using also Motul differential oils, Motul DCTF for my DualClucthTranny and Motul RBF 600/660 oils.

+1 I have been using motul 300v 5w-40 in my 335i since i got it. Burns less oil, engine more quiet, revs smoother, just gives you that buttery smooth feeling. Whether or not it produces more power like it claims is questionable. But the minimal oil consumption, together with how it feels, its a winner for me. I change it every 3-4k miles. Overpriced and overkill yes, but i just love this thing. That thing smells wonderful as well =D

Oil believe it or not makes a huge difference. I've once changed oil off of a car i just bought 350z with ENEOS (JDM brand) and the car was night and day. Engine revs faster and more smooth. Idling noise went way down. Even the shifting feels different (trust me, i have no idea why, but it just shifts better too...). For sure not at placebo because my family who drove it could tell a difference and they didn't know i changed oil.

Awesome stuff. Great to see others have the same experience that I've had with this motul oil...I will definitely be using this as my permanent oil from now on. Even though it is super expensive, it really makes a difference.

BTW, where do you get yours? Up north here in Canada they retail for something like $50+ with tax on top (another 12%) each ><!! That is IF you can find it too because no one stocks this premium oil. The cheapest I can find is actually Ebay going at approx. $38 shipped to conti USA. Anyone know of a cheaper place i can buy online or at at store that's willing to ship? Thanks!

If it is Motul you want, you should be using only the 8100 X-cess 5W-40. It is BMW LL-01 approved and it has a much higher TBN value than the 300V oils!

We use Motul 5W40 Xcess in all street BMWs. Track/race cars get various grades of 300V for its higher temperature stability and incredible lubrication - no cam wear on S54s (common). Even my street 335i with 7500 miles between oil services is super clean inside. It looks like a fresh engine, no tan or gold color to the metal at all, and I've got 68k miles on it. Other cars that come in have a noticeably quieter idle and lower oil consumption with Motul. Other mechanics on a shop forum sing praises of Motul, too.

Since changing to Motul my car doesn't smell like oil at all anymore. I can say for sure the oil consumption has gone down also.

Closer to where it's produce, that's why >=D If we're lucky sometimes we can find it around that price. Anyways, still one of THE most expensive oil there is around. Love the stuff though.

+100!! I recently made a post in another thread about the superiority of Motul and it's long lasting legacy....it puts so much effort in its RnD you wouldnt be surprised why its such premium choice especially for my 335i...

My post was-

When I bought my US used 08 335i Coupe of course I preformed an oil change as who knows what the precious owner had let alone how long it was in the boat until it reached Beirut Lebanon- warm climate all year round.

I put M1 0-40 and after 500km I got a low oil warning! No oil leaks guys, honestly, my car just ate through that thin light gold oil...so, I went to my trusted mechanic and put 7 L of Motul 8100 X-cess 5W40 and was very happy with the price/ reduction in clicking engine noise and of coure it's specs-


ACEA Standards: ACEA A3/B4
API Standards: API SN/CF
OEM Approvals : BMW LL-01 ; MB-Approval 229.5 ; PORSCHE A40 ; Renault RN0710 / 0700 ; VW 502 00 / 505 00 ; OPEL GM LL-B-025 ; FIAT 9.55535-H2/M2/N2

Here's the tech sheet if your interested- http://www.motul.com/system/product_...pdf?1357663396

I used the 5w 40 bc I live in a warm climate hence viscosity. If I was still
Back in the UK I would of used 5w 30.

The bottle also states this oil is specifically made for Turbo Char' and Diesel engines.

I've reset my odometer so let see how long Motul will last....but wow I love how smooth and fast it makes my car run in terms of throttle response and much less of that annoying ticking noise..
