Oil change

Just for curiosity, how often do you guys change oil in your E36's and what grade do you use?


I use Mannheim 5w-40, change oil every 6000K and change(MANN) filter every 3000K.

You can use:

Castrol Syntec 0W-30 and 5W-40
Mobil 1 0W-40
Red Line 0W-40 and 5W-40
Amsoil 5W-40
BMW 5W-30

Best Oil Filters:
Bosch Premiums
Baldwin
Mann
Heingst
Mahle

I do 15K KM OCI, you should be able to do at least 10K, 6K KM is a very short interval.

Mannheim is what many private garages use for Euro cars, they can get it very cheap, my local Midas and my family mechanic carries that oil as well in bulk.
