Exclamation LIQUI MOLY 10w-60 Racing Oil any good guys??

Hey guys my mechanic was going to change my oil but i asked to see the oil and saw that it wasn't Castrol. That actually made me kind of reluctant so i told him i'll get back to him on it. Does anybody else have experience with Liqui-Moly? I searched but found lil' info, thanks for any feedback.

Dont do it if you want to keep your warranty. I dont know how good that oil is but I would still use the Castrol even if I was out of warranty. Stick to the Castrol.

I don't advise you to take that risk! Better safe than sorry.

I was using the Castrol as all of us have since it was the only oil.
Since having my M5 taken care of by ASR Engineering (a year and a half), Abid recommended the Elf excellium 10W50 full synthetic oil.

The car as been perfect. No issues at all. I still have a bunch of Castrol containers in my garage.

I am sure Castrol is great but I can not believe it is the only quality oil for our cars. When I raced Porsches Mobil1 was it. I wouldn't be surprised if Mobil1 would also good for our cars.

I agree, I use Mobil1 for my X5 because its more available but I dont think they have a 10w60 for the m5 but I might be wrong.
