you all realize I can get you Motul Synthetic for $9 tax in per liter when you buy 4 jugs

that's cheaper then sale price of $7.99 plus tax and env fee!!!!!

why not support Maranello Mike and get the factory fill for $6.73 a litre, can't go wrong with that, and a long life oil too

that's just the cost of oil. How much is it to do the full oil change?

Are you talking about the LL-04 BMW specific stuff?
Can you get their 6100 Synergie 15W50 stuff for the same price? And how about the motorsport 300V?

the castrol is long life too... in fact the oem 5w30 and castrol 0w30 are quite similar according to bitog forums.



and figures this went on sale after I bought some other stuff last week and changed my oil.

Don't use LL-04, use LL-01, tech bulliten from BMW says using LL-04 with north American gas causes ash build up in cats leading to failure!!
