by the way, here's all the evidence you need:

a) polyolefin is the listed primary component
b) 450 degree fahrenheit flash point

no problem, buddy. use LM oil with confidence, its a great product.

as soon as my oil change interval is up (probably about 6,000 KM's) i will take a sample and send for UOA (used oil analysis). i will post the results here and on BITOG as soon as i get it back.

i use the lubro moly on my e46 - its LL-98 oil though the e46 says you should use an LL-01. Can anybody shed some light on what the new standard improved? My guess is that LL01 is just a longer drain interval to coincide with the e46's retarded 24k oil change interval recommendation

original poster - even if you don't use LurboM - Partsources is no cheaper than the dealer for oil and filter. i am actually torn on which oil i prefer the lubro moly or the BMW oil at the dealer. I know I won't touch mobil and am not a big fan of the Castrol

not a big fan of castrol... so what oil are you talking about from the dealer? the dealer uses castrol.

If I'm not mistaken Precision Tuning has 7L lugs of Liqui-Moly. Perfect for your engine that requires 6.5L with some extra to top it up as it burns.

yeah, clearly... 5W-30 is a different grade than 0W-30. and unless it is somehow different from any other 5W-30 castrol found at canadian tire or any other store around here, then it's a group III product. period.

that doesnt necessarily mean its bad... just unfair pricing.

all depends on what you want. are you going to use synthetic or non?

are you looking for an oil to run year-round, or do you wan one for the winter one for the summer? if you are going synthetic, and want a year-round oil, use Liqui-Moly 5W-40. if you want one for the winter, use a good synthetic 5W-30 such as Amsoil. then in the summer, use something like a 15W-50.

i suggest just sticking to the LM 5W-40 and thats it.

benny, call lubramoly in europe. They should hire you.

everything you said so far is true, although i think of castrol TWS very highly. For e39 M5 and certain other cars, its the only way to go. Otherwise, lubramoly 5W40 is a safe bet year round.
