the same oil as retailed by bmw
exactly the same ..
and in 4 litre containers as Castrol have started retailing outside of BMW
I agree with you, as I have used M1 15w50 in all my turbo cars and wear has always been minimal. I have been very pleased with it. But I thought an earlier discussion said that the 15w50 technically didn't meet all the BMW specs, like the M1 0w40 did. I am now using M1 0w40 to top up my Castrol 5w30.ard said:I agree the Mobil 1 0w40 is a fine looking oil and the specs are about equal to the specs on the 5w30. there is also a good looking mobil 15w50 maybe for higher temp/stress use? This falls between the BMW5w30 and the BMW TWS10W60 in viscosities...
