I believe it is for the e60 M5 and possibly a few of the other 2006+ models. I spoke to a guy who owns an e60 M5 and the owners manual states to add a quart of motor oil every 1200 km. The motor is designed to burn oil. Saying that, any high performance healthy motor will burn oil when run at high RPM's. It's better to burn oil than wear metal components.

I usually get my oil changes there actually since my warranty ran out.

That sounds like a load of BS for BMW to sell more oil.

I think the guy is just mis-informed... I remember reading my E30 manual, and it said something similar like, it's normal for the motor to burn "so much" oil in "this many km" and if it does, just add some more.

No big deal... and it does happen.

Lubromoly also has a 10w60 that meets BMWs criterias. The e46 M3 and e60 M5 need that oil. So does my e30 M3 when driven at track events.

It is true that most engines will burn a little oil at high RPM. And it's okay.

how often do you guys change your oil? BMW says you don't have to change your oil for 25,000km's (for E46 M3). Who actually follows that? Or is Castrol 10w60 good for that many km's?

Well, that's not exactly true The counter starts at 25,000 km but adjusts to your driving patterns.. if you drive the car hard. I do track events when I can and I drive it briskly on the street so the service counter actually expires around 16,000km for me. Maybe less, I'd have to check my service records.

The castrol oil is high grade and the M3 engines run very smooth and are one of the best engines in the world (won 'world's best engine 3-4L' 6 years in a row). So the fact it can go that long without an oil change isn't surprising at all. My friends wife just got a VW Rabbit, and it doesn't need one for 15,000.

yes , i belive the oil can last that long but not the filter. I change my oil every 7-10,000 km's and my little 323 aint know high-performance machine.i've been running the royal purple XPR (got a good deal on a case)and my car seems to run really good on it.
