1st Oil Change, just under 1k miles, Moly Leichtlauf High Tech Engine Oil 5w40, Mann Filter.

Engine sounds smoother, was surprised at how dirty the oil was already. Is a nicely thicker oil. Sending it to Blackstone, just for the hell of it, benchmark at least.

Looks like Pennzoil just released a new formulation of their LL-01 approved 5w-40. Apparently this meets SN+ spec. No wonder they were getting rid of their old stock at $5/quart some time ago.

Pennzoil 550051120-6PK Platinum Euro Full Synthetic 5W-40 Motor Oil, 1 Quart, 6 Pack

BMW recommend shell oil. Recently spoke to our local BMW dealership who confirmed this, and lots of indies are following suit. Interesting article on it here

Liqui Moly Leichtlauf High Tech Engine Oil 5w40 with 1.5 Cans Liqui Moly Mos2 additive every 7-10K.

150,000 Miles on this N63 in a X5 that is driven hard in the Arizona heat.

I have taken it down to due the valve guide seals and clean the carbon buildup on everything from the notorious leaking valve guide seals the N63 suffers from.

Cam journals and cylinder walls look excellent.

IMHO BMW turbo engines need 5-40 due to the high operating temps, I noticed immediate smoother running when I switched to it.
