Stop using GTX with your replacement mill btw. I don't like to make assumptions on spilled milk but that oil is way out of spec for an M54. I'd guess rod bearing.
How do you figure it's out of spec???
Bearing clearances and the bearings themselves haven't changed from the e21!
If you actually knew what you were talking about, conventional oil is fine for the e46. The LL-04 rating means Long Life! It has nothing to do with PROTECTION of the engine, it just increases the SERVICE INTERVAL.
Before you talk out of your ass like everyone else on here, get the experience required to make such comments!
