Recently purchased a 1993 325i e36 for my son. I'm not new to BMW's, worked for BMW for a few years up to 1976, after leaving Porsche. Currently I drive a 1987 528e with only 137k miles, excellent car, will probably outlast me. Anyway my question about the 325 pertains to oil: type and quantity. Haynes repair manual recommends 20-50 weight, 6.8 quarts when change includes filter. I went with Castrol GTX 20-50 since it is the same as I use in the 528/M20. I ended up pouring in 8 quart's to get the correct reading on the dip stick. Was the hayne's manual wrong? With that volume of oil I would expect more than 3000 miles between changes, am I correct? Would synthetic be a better choice. What does the factory recommend? All replies appreciated.
Bob in VA.
