anyone have positive feedback on Slick 50 or ZMax? I know a lot of people say this stuff is snake oil, but some people swear by it--does anyone on this board have a positive experience with either product on their BMW, and would it hurt to try them?

hehehee.... I was gonna recommend the techron treatment, but I guess the guy beat me to it by about 10 years in that article.

I've never used it in my BMW, what I was pleasantly suprised with how effective it was handling dentonation issues i had with my Olds 307 and LT1 engines(both are admittly 2 totally different animals.

1996- BMW 328IS
